November Events in Branson

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 at the Branson Landing, or enjoying the magic of the Most Wonderful Time of Year Holiday Parade (featuring Branson entertainers) on Nov. 3.
Branson is a magical place in November, come and see for yourself!


Every year, Branson rolls out the red carpet for men and women who have and are serving our country, during what’s easily one of the most patriotic celebrations 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 Vets for Vets Celebration  on Nov. 5, along with a traditional Veterans Day Parade on Nov. 11, are significant parts of the week-long celebration.


As soon as the Christmas season comes to town, Branson transforms into America’s Christmas Tree City. With over 1,000 trees in the Branson area, visitors can find anything from classic trees to creative trees!

Not sure where to start? The Festival of Trees at the Branson Landing is a Christmas tree and wreath exhibition that is fun for all. Click here to see the full Christmas Tree Map.


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 2018, Silver Dollar City has a total of 6.5 million Christmas lights park-wide, including the Christmas in Midtown display! 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.

Don’t overlook the fabulous food available throughout the park, not to mention the rides that 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.

For those of you who want to stay active to stay warm, the Turkey Trot 5k  is a great way to start Thanksgiving Day and to burn some calories before what’s sure to be an afternoon and evening of indulgent eating.

Clearly, there’s much to see, do and enjoy in Branson during November. Click here to see all the activities happening in Branson!
