Although we generally look at Memorial Day as the starting pistol shot for summer, the deeper meaning behind this patriotic holiday should never be forgotten. Dedicated to those brave souls who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our freedom, this special holiday is one way we try not to forget, and when in Branson, you’ll discover that we honor the solemnity of what Memorial Day stands for while offering a lighter celebration as well. Follow this guide to our Branson Memorial Day events and celebrate a holiday that is fun and meaningful at the same time. And because you are staying in one of our Sunset Nightly Rentals, this holiday gets better every minute with plenty of Branson events!


Branson Mill Craft Village Memorial Day Fun

The entire weekend is dedicated to fun and crafting when you visit the Branson Mill Craft Village! Located at 330 Gretna Road and offering how-to demonstrations, special sales, free stuff, and raffle prizes, it’s the perfect way to fill a few hours of your long weekend!


Silver Dollar City Bluegrass & BBQ Festival

Whew, that was a close one! This all-American, nearly month-long festival ends on Memorial Day, and you nearly missed it! Featuring live bluegrass music and a very delicious all you can eat rib feast, it would be unpatriotic to skip this fantastic Silver Dollar City event!


White Water Branson, 3505 West, MO-76

As the temperatures rise, so do the water activities, and Memorial Day Weekend is the opening weekend for our favorite water park, White Water Branson! Show off your inner daredevil with a slide down the KaPau Plummet or take it easy as you drift aimlessly along the Aloha River. And even though the calendar may say you have another month until the solstice arrives, we ALL know summer is here!


Memorial Day Service, May 27th, Ozarks Memorial Park Cemetery, 1638 E. Highway 76

Paying homage to the soldiers who have sacrificed it all for our freedom, this special ceremony sponsored by The Branson Vietnam Veterans of America – Chapter 913 will be a moving tribute. Guaranteed not to leave a dry eye in the house, the emotions behind the speeches will be clear as our American heroes are honored in a bucolic setting that adds to solemnity of the occasion. Starting at 11 AM, it only takes a small amount of time to remember those who have passed.


Chateau on the Lake Memorial Day Celebration

Celebrating the way we Americans do best, the Chateau on the Lake Memorial Day Celebration offers barbecue, live music, and a colorful fireworks display that reflects off the waters of Lake Taneycomo! As you sit on the ground feeling full from the barbecue and happily tired from a long weekend of Memorial Day fun, take a moment to remember and offer a silent salute to those long gone.
