Now entering its 64th consecutive season, Kermit Hunter’s revolutionary drama “Horn in the West” is a tale of triumph and tragedy, joy and heartbreak, all set in the context of the forging of America. Enjoy the compelling story of Daniel Boone and the intrepid settlers of America in their journey westward to overcome adversity and spark the fire of a nation. You are surrounded by majestic 100-year-old oaks and entertained with story, song and dance under the stars.

Enjoy "Dinner with Dan'l," a buffet on-site catered by Dan'l Boone Inn before the show. Reservations required.

On site, too, is the Hickory Ridge Living History Museum, opening at 5:30 nightly before the show (closed Mondays). Both self-guided and guided tours are available.
