Branson, MO. September, 2018--Downtown Branson is celebrating its 45th Annual Autumn Daze Arts, Crafts, and Music Festival September 13-15, 2018 in Historic Downtown. Come experience over 80 vendors with crafts ranging from rugs, woodworks, glassworks, jewelry, clothing, homemade brooms, pottery, as well as some of your favorite products from independent representatives. 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 corn, 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."

Autumn Daze will also showcase some of your favorite Branson stars such as George Dyer, Doo Wop and The Drifters, Georgina Holiday, Nedra Culp, Kari Garrison, Aaron Napier, and more on the entertainment stage. Friday, September 14th at 4:30PM, the amazing cast of Forte Productions will present a live show “Big Top Anthem” featuring songs and dance from the recent hit movie and you won’t want to miss the Greatest Show around. The DBBA will be auctioning off a Johnson acoustic guitar signed by Branson entertainers and donated by Lightning Pawn and Music. Bid daily during the three day festival until 3pm Saturday when the winner will be announced.

Saturday afternoon, sponsored by First Community Bank, will be the first ever dance competition where contestants from local dance studios will be showing off their skills at a chance to win cash prizes! Judges will be Lloyd & Jordan Alexander-Holt, talented producers of the live stage shows happening monthly at the Historic Owens Theater.
