Branson loves every holiday, big or small, but especially loves the grandest of them all...Christmas! Maybe you celebrate another end-of-year holiday, that’s okay, Branson welcomes you to enjoy the festivities and magical atmosphere created by the town’s biggest celebration of the year! Most of the shows change up at least half their performance and fill it with Christmas classics and more recent holiday hits...Silver Dollar City glows with literally millions of lights bedazzling just about everything in the park...drive-through light displays beckon while Santa pops up all over town, because he can see who’s been good and happy, and who’s been bad and wearing a frown!
We know it’s still early in September, but this is just about the perfect time to get your trip planned because Branson kicks off the holiday season on November 1, and that’s barely two months away. You’ll want to make sure you have tickets to the hottest holiday shows, like Dolly Parton’s Stampede, Miracle of Christmas at Sight & Sound, Hamners’ Unbelievable Christmas, Hughes Brothers Christmas Show, Shoji Tabuchi’s Family Christmas, Andy Williams Ozark Mountain Christmas Starring The Lennon Sisters, Presleys’ Country Jubilee Christmas Show, Cassandre' Voice of an Angel - Christmas Spectacular, Christmas Wonderland, A Shepherd’s Christmas Carol Dinner Show, Merry Christmas with Dino and Cheryl, and the list goes on.
We mentioned Silver Dollar City earlier, but we can’t stress enough how truly BIG this world-famous, multi-award-winning theme park does their favorite holiday...in addition to all the lights, you’ll discover special live performances around the park, lots of festive food, wonderful gift items to make your holiday shopping fun, and that magical tree...if you’ve been to Silver Dollar City during Christmas, you’ll be thrilled to know that the park’s centerpiece attraction has gotten even bigger and better! This all new, eight-story state-of-the-art tree is 80 feet tall and glows with thousands upon thousands of high-resolution lights in a show that brings the lights together with music and color, it’s an amazing site to behold!
When it comes to shopping, Branson for the holidays can’t be beat! Tanger Outlets, always a favorite for folks who love a good brand name, will have deals and sales, and Branson Landing will roll out the Christmas red carpet for everything from a parade in early November, to special offers throughout. Grand Village Shops, the ideal setting for a winter holiday, gets dressed up for Christmas, and the savings don’t get much better than what you’ll find at The Shoppes at Branson Meadows. And don’t forget all the independent retailers you’ll find in Branson’s Historic Downtown district, along the Strip - Highway 76, in Branson Hills, and all around the area.
The bottom line is this...you won’t find a more festive destination than Branson, Missouri!
