Silver Dollar City is the Home of American Craftsmanship and hosts the annual National Harvest & Cowboy Festival each fall. This year’s Festival is from September 16 through October 31, 2015 and consists of the Wild West Show, over 125 Visiting Craftsmen, The Barn Dance and Buck Taylor’s Cowboy Emporium.
Each year in Branson, the weather turns from the summer heat to the crisp, cool air of fall right around the start of the six week long National Harvest & Cowboy Festival. The temperatures are perfect for the visiting craftsmen, music and dancing along with a variety of food.
You will be taken back to the pioneer days as many visiting craftsmen create beautiful works of art including musical instruments, making soap, glass-blowing and much more, all with period-correct costumes and tools. Enjoy Bluegrass and folk bands playing traditional songs that old-time cowboys would have heard while dancers and other performers keep you entertained. You may even be able to catch some cooking workshops showing you how to prepare meals in an iron skillet or dutch oven.
Silver Dollar City’s shaded, village setting is perfect for you and your family to stroll through while enjoying the ambiance of the pioneer days. This time of year in the Ozarks the leaves are changing along with the temperature, providing a perfect backdrop for this fall festival.
