Best Branson Insider Highlights for September 2017

One of the over 115 craftsmen who will be demonstrating at Silver Dollar City’s National Harvest & Cowboy Festival; Clay & Tina Cooper performing in “Clay Cooper’s Country Express;” and the “Oak Ridge Boys.”

“Branson’s beautiful fall foliage season starts in mid-September. The colorful show continues through the middle or end of October,” said Preston Garrison, Director of Operations for the Branson Tourism Center. “That, coupled with cooler temperatures, smaller crowds, and most of its Attractions and Shows being open, make September an ideal time to visit Branson.”
