Ozark Mountain Christmas, from November 1 through December 31 each year, is one of the most beautiful, entertaining, and inspiring times of the year in Branson. It’s easily America’s biggest celebration of the traditional American Christmas with its millions of Christmas lights, the award winning “Old Time Christmas Festival” at Silver Dollar City, Branson’s shows presenting their Christmas shows, world class shopping, and all the fun and excitement Branson is noted for.
BTC’s Best Branson Insider Highlights, for Ozark Mountain Christmas 2018, highlights limited engagement performances by national touring stars and major events taking place during Ozark Mountain Christmas that are in addition to all the other live shows, attractions, and everything else Branson offers on a daily basis. They are listed by category, sorted in order of starting date, and are preceded by our Featured Show, Limited Engagement, and Event.
Featured Show: The Hughes Brothers Christmas Show has been described as “the ultimate Christmas experience and a triumph of everything you want to feel at Christmas,” and for good reason. The Hughes Brothers and their extremely talented family, “transport you to a Christmas wonderland filled with the season’s best vocal harmonies, exciting dances, inspiring instrumentals, and of course, the enchantment and light-hearted humor that everyone loves about the Hughes Brothers Show. Along with all the festive surprises and treasured family traditions, see Santa in a new light when he explains the symbols of Christmas in the most moving Christmas presentation you’ve ever witnessed.”
Featured Limited Engagement: Daniel O’Donnell is a perennial favorite of Branson audiences. He has performed in Branson many times, but this year, to the delight of his Branson fans and for the first time, he is performing his Christmas show, Christmas With Daniel. This new, full Christmas stage production features O’Donnell singing many Christmas and other festive songs from across the decades. He is joined on stage by the very talented Mary Duff and local choirs. With the limited number of performances, the interest in this new Branson Christmas show, and the way many of Daniel’s shows sell out in advance, it is suggested that those wanting to see his show make advance reservations to ensure both availability and the best seating. It should be noted that the last performance is scheduled for December 1, 2018.
Featured Event: Silver Dollar City’s “Old Time Christmas” celebrates the true meaning of this special magical season amidst the glow of over 6.5 million dazzling lights, including 1.5 million for its newest light spectacular “Christmas in Midtown.” It’s been proclaimed as “The Most Illuminated Park on Earth” by the Travel Channel and “One of the most sparkly, lively holiday celebrations anywhere” by Midwest Living. And that’s not all, there’s the Broadway style shows with the musical adaptations of, “A Dickens’ Christmas Carol” and “It’s A Wonderful Life;” The Living Nativity; “Rudolph’s Holly Jolly™ Christmas Light Parade;” plus demonstrating craftsmen; great shopping; weather permitting, all of the rides including its new “Time Traveler,” the “World’s Fastest, Steepest & Tallest Spinning Coaster;” and everything else the park offers on a day to day basis.
