Branson Brings Big Fun in November

There’s something special about visiting Branson in November.

Perhaps it’s the heartfelt tribute to our nation’s veterans during Veterans Homecoming Week, Nov. 5-11. Or maybe it’s the millions of lights that dazzle and enthrall during An Old Time Christmas, Nov. 4-Dec. 30, at Silver Dollar City.

It could be seeing Winter Wonderlanding and the Festival of Trees throughout the month on Branson Landing, or celebrating with family and friends while enjoying the magic of the Most Wonderful Time of Year Holiday Parade (featuring Branson entertainers) on Nov. 4.

Yes, Branson is a magical place in November, and you’re welcome to be part of the excitement.

Veterans Homecoming Week

Every year, Branson rolls out the red carpet for the men and women who have and are serving our country, during what’s easily one of the most patriotic celebrations anywhere in the U.S.

Throughout the week, veterans and their families are treated to a full slate of events, ranging from mini reunions and free movie screenings to commemoration/remembrance services, live stage productions and tribute luncheons and events.

Of course, the annual Military Gala and Banquet on Nov. 8, along with a traditional Veterans Day Parade on Nov. 11, are significant parts of the week-long celebration.

More details are available by visiting our events calendar.

An Old Time Christmas

Among the most popular of Silver Dollar City’s festivals, An Old Time Christmas is a feast for the senses, thanks to the millions of lights and lighted trees that adorn the 1880s theme park.

In 2017, Silver Dollar City is adding 1.5 million lights – bringing the park-wide total to 6.5 million! - as part of its new Christmas in Midtown offerings. Returning favorites such as Rudolph’s Holly Jolly Christmas Light Parade and two live shows (“It’s a Wonderful Life” and “A Dickens’ Christmas Carol”) add magical touches all their own.

And don’t overlook the fabulous food available throughout the park, not to mention the rides that elicit squeals of joy from thrill-seekers of all ages (rides open weather permitting).

Branson is the destination for incredible live performances, no matter what time of year you visit. As the holidays approach, Branson’s theaters host an array of shows to wow audiences, so you’ll have no problem finding an exciting and memorable performance.

Remember to keep your eye out for touring performers, too. Folks like country-music legend Charlie Daniels and the Charlie Daniels Band, performing at The Mansion Theatre on Nov. 3, frequently make special appearances in Branson.

Sports fanatics won’t want to miss the Ozarks Legacy Days Vintage Baseball Festival set for Nov. 10-12.

Players will host demonstrations on Nov. 10 at the Ballparks of America, while games are played Nov. 11-12 at Branson Rec Plex.

For those who prefer participating to spectating, the Turkey Trot 5k is a great way to start Thanksgiving Day and to burn some calories in advance of what’s sure to be an afternoon and evening of indulgent eating.
