from Paula Deen's Lumberjack Feud Show
Wildly popular Lumberjack Feud returns to Pigeon Forge! Rip-roaring, high-energy family fun guaranteed for both the young and the young at heart.

Journey back in time to the days before the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park when the logging industry ruled the area. The show features an “end-of-season” feud between two families whose names were synonymous with the timber business – the Dawsons and the McGraws. World-class lumberjacks represent both families in a variety of thrilling, fast-paced tests of skill and prowess ranging from chopping and axe throwing to tree climbing and log rolling.

Guests become part of the experience as they join in the competitive spirit, cheering for their Dawson or McGraw lumberjack family. And children are invited to try their hand at cross-cutting with a lumberjack during the show’s intermission.

Located at Lumberjack Square, the 350-person outdoor venue home to Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud will feature padded seating under a covered, climate-controlled grandstand designed for the guests’ comfort. The show will operate rain or shine with the season running through December.

Please Note: This show is NOT a dinner show. However, several restaurants are located nearby in the Lumberjack Square.

"Lumberjack Feud - Best Attraction I have ever been to!"
January, 2019
The Lumberjack Feud is the best attraction I have ever been to!!
It is very fast paced, energetic, fun; the entire audience is involved with the show.
There is a story line associated with the show making it a contest between 2 sides of the arena including the audience. Much like the old "Hatfield versus McCoy" feud.
The show gets the kids involved from the start to the finish-- this is a contest for all ages.

Tip: Be prepared to get involved with the fun! Be prepared to shout as loud as you can!

"Awesome & Entertaining!"
January, 2019
This was the only show we attended while in the Smoky Mountains. The show was great and they did an awesome job involving the crowd (kids). I’m so glad our family saw this. My kids are 3,4,5&6. The perfect length of time. Nice seating with padded seats and backs on the benches. I’d highly recommend this and I’d definitely go again!
