June Events in Branson

Okay, so, technically, summer doesn’t begin until late in the month. Don’t let the calendar fool you, though, June is jumping in Branson.

The vacation oasis in the heart of the Ozarks has lively events, family-friendly festivals and special recognition activities planned throughout the month. And because it’s Branson, expect to find awesome, limited-engagement music shows, too.

Bright Bikes, Cool Cars

The first weekend of June in Branson is tailor made for gear heads. Branson Landing hosts the Gold Wing Road Riders Association Parade and Light Show from 7-9 p.m. on Friday, June 2. Then, on June 3, don’t miss the exhibition put on by the Kansas Twisters Motorcycle Drill Team at 9 a.m. in the parking lot at Golden Corral.

Also on June 3, Presleys’ Country Theatre is the spot for the Route 66 Mopar Club’s 18th annual Mopars in Branson, a celebration of classic cars, Chrsylers and the Mopar engine. There’s no admission charge for spectators.

One of the top places to find events in Branson is Silver Dollar City and June 2017 is no exception. Food Days run through June 9 and promise both sweet and savory treats to please your palate. June 3 kicks off the Star-Spangled Summer festival, which celebrates family fun and dazzling performers like the Harlem Globetrotters, who are in their final season at the 1880s theme park.

Silver Dollar City’s Echo Hollow area is hosting a summer concert series from June 2-4 and again on June 9-11. Among the performers are 1980s tribute band Members Only on June 2, and Rock ’N Roll Hall of Famers The Lovin’ Spoonful (whose hits include “Do You Believe in Magic” and “Summer in the City”) on June 9. The full lineup is available at Silver Dollar City’s website.

Attractive Attractions

You probably don’t need another reason to visit Titanic Museum Attraction in June, but just in case you do, consider this: costumes from the megahit 1997 film “Titanic” are on display through June 11.

Special Shows, Branson Style

There’s no shortage of live entertainment in Branson and June brings some big names to the city’s stages.

Among the touring performers making special stops in Branson is John Conlee, known for hits such as “Rose Colored Glasses” and “Common Man,” who performs June 7 at Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Theatre.

On June 9, make sure you get to Branson Landing for what promises to be a wildly entertaining evening at the Choose Branson’s Lip-Sync Clash and Concert. This event features Branson performers and hot hits from the 1980s, 1990s and today.

A couple of weeks later, the Welk Resort Theatre hosts Bill Anderson and Moe Bandy for a night of great country music on June 23. Anderson has been making music since the 1960s and Bandy has been on the scene since the 1970s, and this promises to be a fun night for country-music purists.

Also on June 23, the Taneycomo Festival Jazz Orchestra puts on a delightful two-hour show with Lake Taneycomo and the Branson Landing’s water and fire show as a backdrop. It’s a must-see for jazz enthusiasts.

Branson shows its community and national pride throughout the year with events focusing on everything from first responders to our nation’s veterans. 

Returning for its fourth year is Law Enforcement Week, June 10-17, where Branson pays tribute to men and women who keep roadways, cities and neighborhoods safe with a lineup of events that includes a golf tournament, fishing tournament and a motorcycle show featuring vintage police motorcycles.

On June 9-10, firefighters show their skills and the ways in which they help save lives – while wearing full gear – during the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge at Branson Landing.

June 10 also brings the Run for a Vet 5K and Half Marathon to the Dewey Short Visitor Center, overlooking scenic Table Rock Lake. Proceeds from the event benefit the Branson Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 913.

College of the Ozarks hosts a fabulous event near the end of the month, June 25, with its 28th Annual Honor America Celebration. The event includes a barbecue, activities for children, live music from performers such as Ayo (Voices of Glory) and concludes with a program presented by the Hard Work U Concert Band, followed by a fireworks show.
