Experience Downtown’s Autumn Daze Arts, Crafts, and Music Festival

Downtown Branson is celebrating its 44th Annual Autumn Daze Arts, Crafts, and Music Festival September 14-16, 2017 in Historic Downtown and is a great family event. New for this year’s craft festival are strolling characters Saturday September 16th from the Branson Arts Council. You’ll enjoy walking alongside animal characters as they roam through the festivities. You won’t want to miss it. Come experience over 80 vendors as well with crafts ranging from rugs, woodworks, glassworks, jewelry, clothing, and more for FREE. Vendors will be demonstrating their crafts as well as selling their wares all three days. Savor great food such as pork sandwiches, fresh squeezed lemonade, kettle korn, and pork rinds. Be sure to check out all of Downtown’s sidewalk sales as well.

“I love Autumn Daze," says Brenda Meadows an entertainer and chairperson for the Branson Veterans Task Force. "What a great way to celebrate the season and continue a vital, annual Branson tradition.  It is so much more than an arts and craft festival."

 

New Vendors

Festival goers will be excited to know that there will be many new vendors. Shop for beautiful wooden trains and firetrucks for kids, sand art and embroidered corn bags for corn toss games, all natural homemade pet treats, windchimes, stain glass windows and fused glass décor, polymer clay pendants, delicious sauces and jellies and more.
