Christmas Shows and Shopping in Branson

Create memories to last a lifetime at Branson's Ozark Mountain Christmas. Visit Branson, Missouri during November and December and you'll see why Yahoo Travel named Branson a Top 10 Destination for Holiday Lights and Good Morning America listed Silver Dollar City as a Top 5 Spot to Light Up the Holidays. For holiday celebrations, entertainment, shopping, and dining, Branson has it all. 


Known for live entertainment, many of Branson's 100+ shows stage holiday-themed productions during November and December. Others combine portions of their regular show with Christmas music during the holiday season or host touring performers for limited engagement appearances.
