There may be many reasons you are planning a visit to Branson: from wanting to see the shows that make you laugh, sing, and dance in your seats, to feeling the need to get back to nature as you rent a cabin in the woods, to just needing a breather from real life. Perhaps Branson has always been on your bucket list. All these reasons are valid ones, and we approve any thought process that ends up with you here in our favorite town on Earth! We love our town, and we love its visitors even more. But whatever your reasons for visiting, these upcoming food festivals in Branson that celebrate the flavors of our region, may end up being the highlight of your unforgettable visit.


Branson Music Festival, April 20th and 21st

Although the focus of this thigh slapping festival is music, the Celebrity Iron Chef cookoff held each morning at 9:30 AM fits in our food festival topic nicely! Held inside the Welk Resort’s theater, a market tent with over 40 booths offering arts, crafts, and yes, more food, allows for a hunger pang quenching good time for all!


Bluegrass & BBQ Festival in May

Silver Dollar City is the site for this month-long fest held every May that offers music and meat that will make your taste buds smile! All you can eat ribs, a sauce tasting with over 150 sauces, and the opportunity to ride rides and experience life as it used to be in this 19th Century-themed amusement park gives you the perfect reason for planning a May vacation in Branson!


Southern Gospel Picnic in August

It’s back to Silver Dollar City we go for another month-long food festival in Branson; this one includes outdoor concerts with your favorite gospel stars and delicious Southern food! The House of Chicken & Fixings will be serving their best Southern style food for your al fresco dining enjoyment!


Autumn Daze, September 13th through 15th

The best time to visit Branson, in our humble opinions, is in the fall, and this festival, held in the heart of historic downtown Branson, is one of the top reasons why! Offering delicious foods, live entertainment, arts, crafts, and the opportunity to enjoy a crisp fall day while exploring the aisles with your family, Autumn Daze is a festival worth returning to year after year after year!
