The magic of summer doesn’t go away as we age, even if it may lose some of its shimmer. The days still stretch out ahead of us filled with the promise of something wonderful happening. Time flies a little faster, though, and because our summer vacations as adults tend to last no more than a week, it’s important that we fill those hours with as much fun and excitement as we can; the summer festivals in Branson allows visitors to do just that. If you’re planning where to go this summer, we suggest moving Branson to the top of your travel list. Check out these fun-filled summer festivals in Branson!


Shepherd of the Hills Smokin’ Summer Kick-Off BBQ Festival

Because we can’t wait to for the fun to begin, this BBQ Festival takes place on May 25th and May 26th. Costing $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12 (one ticket is for both days!), it’s a bargain for even the tightest vacation budgets! Featuring music, meat, a boat and RV show, and a kids’ zone that will be loved by the little ones in your group, planning your visit to coincide with this fun summer festival in Branson will be the best idea you’ve had all year!
