From great live shows to exciting attractions and its beautiful Ozarks hills and lakes, Branson offers a variety of entertainment and fun things to do on a daily basis that few, if any, travel destinations can equal. Those daily activities are further enhanced with the addition of Limited Engagement performances by national touring stars and special events. The primary purpose of the Best Branson Insider Highlights is to highlight those performances and major events taking place during the month.
We will also highlight a Featured Show, Limited Engagement, and Event for the month. All Limited Engagements and events are listed in order of starting date.
Featured Show of the Month: Amazing Pets features delightful circus-like acts performed by a most unusual cast! Cats galore, cuddly canines, and even brilliantly colored exotic birds put on a show sure to delight “kids” of all ages! It’s a magical touch of mayhem and furry frivolity and fun for the whole family to enjoy!
Featured Limited Engagement of the Month: Since their national debut on NBC’s hit prime time show America’s Got Talent in 2009, The Texas Tenors have become one of the most popular singing groups in America. In addition, to a full concert schedule and many hit recordings, they have filmed two PBS Specials, “You Should Dream” and, just recently their newest, “Rise.” The show is in concert format containing many covers and original music including country, classical, gospel, Broadway, and more. From their first number to the last, the power, beauty, and intensity of each totals up to an unforgettable entertainment experience that should not be missed!
Featured Event of the Month: Silver Dollar City’s Star-Spangled Summer Festival offers family fun and entertainment you won’t find anywhere else. See the world famous Harlem Globetrotters for their final season at Silver Dollar City, your favorite cartoon characters, Championship Cloggers, and much more! And that’s beside everything else Silver Dollar City offers. The 1880s styled them park has over 40 thrilling rides and attractions. New this year is the $26 million “Time Traveler,” the world’s fastest, steepest, and tallest Spinning Coaster. It’s a world-record-breaking Spinning Coaster from many different aspects including a top speed of 50.3 miles per hour, making it the fastest with its immediate out-of-the-station 10 story, 90 degree vertical drop”… straight down the Ozark mountain side!
