It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

If you haven't been to Branson during the holidays, you’re in for an amazing surprise. If you’ve visited during this special season before, it’s easy to figure out why this is part of your family's holiday traditions.

Scenes in Branson

As a visitor, you will see Christmas lights glowing in every direction, celebrities and stars filling the stages and shopping bags in everyone's hands. Branson is known for its live entertainment and there's no exception at Christmas time! It’s not called the Live Music Show Capital of the World for nothing! There are many shows completely dedicated to the holidays and nearly every theater incorporates Christmas music into at least half of the performance. You'll hear traditional Christmas music, carols and hymns, sounds from the past and sounds from today. You'll see Christmas lights, decorated sets and displays, costumes and more. And, you'll feel the Spirit of Christmas everywhere you go…
