September Events in Branson

Labor Day weekend generally marks summer’s last hurrah, but there’s no stopping the fun during September in Branson.

With activities ranging from concerts and commemoration events to holiday sales, festivals and outdoor fun, your Branson getaway won’t be short on things to do … you just might have trouble getting it all in.

A Packed Labor Day Weekend

The month begins on a high note when Resurrection – A Journey Tribute performs a free, live concert Sept. 1 at Branson Landing. Yes, they’ll play all the hits, so “Don’t Stop Believin’” it will be a great time when the show begins at 7 p.m.

More great music is on tap at Silver Dollar City, as the annual Southern Gospel Picnic wraps up nearly two weeks of music focused on faith and family between Sept. 1-4.

The cast of “it” celebrates American workers at the Hughes Brothers Theatre with a special 8 p.m. show on Labor Day (Monday, Sept. 4), while Tanger Outlets entices shoppers with great deals during its annual Labor Day weekend sales.

Ghost Hunting Galore

September is the perfect time to set sail for a night of psychic fun aboard the Titanic Museum in Branson. The Psychic Dinner and Ghost Hunt Weekend kicks off at 6 p.m. on Sept. 8 with a private Italian dinner at Pasghetti's, where you'll enjoy entertainment from Helen Benziger, the great grandaughter of Titanic Survivor Margaret, "The Unsinkable Molly Brown." Afterwards, attendees will board the Titanic Museum for a night filled with complimentary drink stations, time to interact with psychic medium Chip Coffey and a ghost hunt aboard the "Ship of Dreams" later into the night. 

Outdoor Fun Abounds

With the beautiful Missouri Ozarks always supplying a beautiful backdrop, September is a great time to get outdoors in Branson.

Bass Pro Shops Outdoor Days at Table Rock State Park mark an excellent opportunity to connect with nature through hands-on activities and demonstrations of outdoor skills. The event is free and open to the public on Sept. 9-10.

Sept. 9 also brings the opportunity to support Together Forever, a Skylar Sanders Family Foundation, with the third annual Landing to Landing canoe and kayak race. The race begins at Cooper Creek and goes to Branson Landing.

Commemoration Event

On Monday, Sept. 11, Branson pauses for a moving tribute to first responders and those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001. Branson Landing is the site of the city’s annual 9/11 Memorial Ceremony, which begins at 6:30 p.m. The Bretts and Branson Veteran’s Task Force will lead the ceremony of observance in front of the Branson Landing fountains.

Festivals for the Family

Festival fun goes into full swing in mid-September at Silver Dollar City, which hosts the annual National Crafts and Cowboy Festival from Sept. 13 through Oct. 28. You’ll encounter 125 visiting craftspeople and enjoy cowboy-themed activities including an old-fashioned barn dance and chuck-wagon cooking.

Adding to the festive atmosphere, downtown Branson will be bursting with activities from Sept. 14-16 during the Autumn Daze Arts, Crafts and Music Festival. Enjoy homemade goodies, craft demonstrations, concerts, a food court and a celebrity autograph booth.

The same weekend sees an awesome display of military aircraft come to the Branson Airport from Sept. 14-17 during the CAF Airpower History Tour. This special event features the B-29/B-24 Squadron of the Commemorative Air Force and crews from more than 70 CAF units from across the U.S.

If you visit any of these festivals on Sept. 15, be sure to make your way to Branson Landing at 7 p.m. for a concert featuring Makenna and Brock. Having appeared on TV’s “The X-Factor” the duo has earned a significant following and you’ll find out why when you see them live.

Clearly, summer’s last hurrah is long lasting in Branson, where fun is in season all-year long. Find more at ExploreBranson.com and share your vacation photos on Instagram with us using #ExploreBranson.
