Swanky's Sideshow (also called Swanky's Tent) is a large circus-themed attraction where Swanky Kong hosts three ball-tossing minigames. It only appears in the original Super Nintendo version of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. Swanky's Sideshow is optional and the Kongs can play it for prizes. There is a Swanky's Sideshow in every world except for Krematoa. In the Game Boy Advance remake, Swanky runs a minigame known as Swanky's Dash instead.
In every mode, the primary objective is for Dixie or Kiddy (depending on which Kong is active) to throw balls at targets held by cardboard Kremlings. Their opponent is Cranky Kong, who rambles before a match and afterward. Cranky has a different reaction for each mode that he either wins or loses at.
All three modes cost two Bear Coins to play. If the Kongs win, Swanky rewards four Bear Coins and several Banana Bunches to them, sometimes even a Red Balloon. If they lose, Swanky gives Dixie and Kiddy a consolation prize of one Bear Coin and a few bananas.
