Branson's "Season" Kicks Off for 2018

by  |  Shows & Entertainment, Attractions & Activities

Premier Dates for Two Dozen Popular Shows!

Branson offers a lot to see and do for millions of guests year-round, but every long-time Branson fan knows that the live entertainment really amps up just before Spring.  Many entertainers return from vacation, shows nail down that last rehearsal, seasonal attractions and restaurants reopen their doors, and the calmer and gentler Branson that many people enjoy between late December and early March is suddenly kicked into high gear!  Of course, high gear means different things to different people, but everyone agrees that it always means fun, family, and a festive spirit that never dims in Branson!

Branson is filled with high-energy interactive attractions, like ziplines, go karts, indoor and outdoor waterparks, and climbing facilities, as well as more passive activities, including fascinating museums, shopping, and sightseeing.  But there’s one very important thing that has always set Branson apart from every other destination, and that’s its huge collection of fabulous live shows!  Here are opening dates for a couple dozen of the most popular:
