Things to Do

Fall is an exciting time to visit Branson, Missouri. Branson is located in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, and fall visitors will be able to take advantage of cooler temperatures and experience the autumn leaves in all their glory. There are also several exciting festivals and events planned for fall in the Ozarks that are not to be missed!

Silver Dollar City's National Crafts and Cowboy Festival is an exciting way to see both art by some of the country's finest artists and craftspeople and enjoy a slice of cowboy life, all in one place! 125 visiting craftspeople will join Silver Dollar City's 100 resident craftspeople for a variety of artwork including weaving, quilting, painting, drawing, ceramics, woodworking, and more. Several heritage craftspeople will also be there to demonstrate their skills at basket making, hand-crafting candles, and even book- binding. When you're finished shopping for the day, you can take in the death-defying stunts and unbelievable performances of the Wild West Show. Based on the historic "Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show" which played all over the country from 1883-1913, the show features trick roper and bullwhip master A.J. Silver, 6-time World Champion hoop dancer Nakotah, David Rosaire and his "Perky Pekes," and trick riding by the renowned Western Trick Riders. The show's patriotic finale features a flyover from an American Bald Eagle. When you get hungry, be sure to head down to the Red Gold Courtyard for authentic chuck wagon cooking from Kent Rollins. He entertains audiences with cowboy stories, humor, and poetry while cooking up a delicious chuck wagon meal from his restored 1876 Studebaker wagon. The National Crafts and Cowboy Festival at Silver Dollar City is a unique experience that is not to be missed!
