We get excited with the changing of every season here in Branson, as each one offers something uniquely wonderful in ambience, landscape, and of course, in the events that are offered! In the spring, we welcome the promise of new life with flowers in bud. In summer, the lazy days of our childhood are remembered fondly. And in fall and winter? From the vibrantly beautiful landscape of changing trees to the blanket of snow that softens a cold winter’s day, each day of each season brings us something new to be thankful for, and these upcoming seasonal events in Branson are just the icing on the cake!


The Annual Turkey Trot, Thanksgiving Morning, Branson Landing

The good thing about this day of thanks is knowing that our tables will be groaning under the weight of all the delicious goodies we always prepare! This holiday of indulgence can add a few extra pounds, though, all of which tend to land in the spots we want them least! The Annual Turkey Trot, however, is the perfect way to eat a little more without adding to those numbers on the scale. Participate in this fun 5K walk/run (all on flat ground!) with prizes and tee shirts!


Breakfast with Santa, December 21, Chateau on the Lake

Putting the fun in fundraiser, this special event will be the highlight of your child’s life as they watch Santa arrive on a bright red fire engine, have a one-on-one meeting with the jolly old elf, and enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet. Also offering clowns, kids’ Christmas activities, and holiday movies, Christmas morning may pale in comparison!

The 4th of July is an amazing day in which cities across the United States come alive with amazing celebrations and tremendous national pride. Regardless of where you are, you are sure to find many exciting ways to spend your day and night. This is especially true in Branson, Missouri, where the people get extra excited and the festivities are particularly energized. Here are some of the best things going on for 4th of July in Branson MO!


Liberty Light Up Celebration

For the 9th year in a row, this amazing celebration will take over the beautiful area that is Branson Landing in the heart of the city. While it takes place on July 3rd, this is one of the best ways to celebrate this year, particularly if you enjoy great live music. This year’s celebration features a very special musical performance from a Journey tribute band. If you have ever seen these guys in action, then you know that this is as close to the real thing as it gets. After the show, the landing and the adjacent Lake Taneycomo come to life with light with the city’s premiere fireworks display. Stick around after the fireworks for an encore performance by the band.


Shepherd of the Hills 4th of July Show

If you are a fan of the theatre, then this is the place that you will want to find yourself. This show is one of those extravagant Branson traditions. Underneath the stars, you can enjoy this epic drama that delves into matters of love, the true meaning of life, struggle, power, and many other themes that connect with each and every visitor. The show is grandiose, employing 40 horses, over 80 characters, an amazing 1908 automobile, and the real-time burning of a log cabin. The celebration is completed by a fireworks display right after the show. Get discounted tickets by booking your spot early!


The Fireburst Celebration for 4th of July in Branson MO

This is the greatest celebration for those that love the outdoors. The real meat of the festivities begin around dusk, but since it takes place at Table Rock Lake, it is the perfect place to spend the whole day enjoying the warm weather and this beautiful lake. Wind down after a long day of frolicking around the lake by enjoying an absolutely breathtaking fireworks display over the waters of Table Rock Lake.
