PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. – The Jacks are back in Pigeon Forge at Paula Deen's Lumberjack Feud, scheduled to open in late Spring 2018. The show and adventure will be the first permanent outdoor venue lumberjack show in Tennessee.
Audience members will be treated to an unforgettable experience as they 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.
“Pigeon Forge has become a second home for my family and me,” Paula Deen said. “The community has been warm and welcoming from the moment I opened Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen and I’m thrilled to bring this action-packed show full of family fun back to the area for both residents and visitors to enjoy.”
Local fixture Uncle Bud Beasley will host the show rain or shine in its new 1.2-acre outdoor venue where renowned lumberjacks, including Mark Bouquin and Derek Knutson, will wow fans with their sheer strength and speed.
Located at Walden’s Landing, 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 Spring through December. The lumberjacks will perform daily with show times and reservations available soon.
