Theater Hatfield & McCoy Pigeon Forge

This location is the home of the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud where you can feast and be entertained by some of the area's best dancers, musicians and comedians.

Quality mountain music in the SmokiesDancing, tricks, clogging near GatlinburgSo let's talk about the show first. The story goes that the Hatfields made fun of the McCoys, or the McCoys stole from the Hatfields, but whatever the truth is both families have been feuding for generations. They are a little more peaceful now but no less rowdy. Now they try to beat the other family with their musical skills or their dance moves and end up in a head-to-head competition set-up by the evil Mayor so that both families fail and he can run them off! Talk about intrigue!!
