Branson is a renowned destination for family vacations, arguably one of the most prominent of this type in the Midwest region. This is in no small part due to Silver Dollar City, around which the Branson Harvest Festival mostly revolves. And no wonder. Silver Dollar City is a spectacular theme park; it won the 10Besties Best Theme Park award and remains a favorite of kids of all ages.
This year's festival aims to synthesize two distinct themes: "Salute to the Great American Cowboy" and "Tribute to the All American Farmer." 400 musicians and 100 artisans flock to Branson and Silver Dollar City for this event, and of course, all the regular attractions of the theme park are on hand as well.
The festival officially begins on September 13 and runs all the way through October 27.
