August Events in Branson

Every month, Branson has amazing events that are unique and fun for the whole family, and August will be no different! Don’t forget about our standing events such as Moonlight Madness at Silver Dollar City, Branson Showboat Princess & Pirate Cruises, and the Branson Farmer’s Market!

1. Branson Regional Arts Council Art Walk

Join the Branson Regional Arts Council for their Art Walk this year! Come get a dose of fine art and then enjoy some live music with the Dancin’ in the Street Concert (concert at Lakeside Shoppes next to North Beach Park)!  What could be better on a warm summer night in the Ozarks?

2. Back to School Sales-Tax Free Weekend at Tanger Outlets

Ready for back-to-school shopping? Save BIG when you shop at Tanger Outlets during the State of Missouri’s sales tax-free weekend! Tanger Outlets will have all of your back-to-school essentials and all of the latest fall fashions from your favorite brands!

Not only that, but stores are going to remain open until 10PM on Friday and Saturday to give you even more time to save! Stop Tangerstyle!

3. Guided Hike & Ice Cream

What could be better than the outdoors and some ice cream?! On this guided hike & ice cream, you’ll start at the Alum Cove Natural Bridge Recreation Area with a short 1.5 mile hike with 272 ft elevation change. The trail leads to one of the largest natural bridges in the Ozarks, located in a gorgeous valley enclosed by the bluff line. The bridge spans 130 ft and is made of solid rock by a small creek. This hike has it all – natural bridge, caves, waterfalls and amazing bluffs!

After the hike, you will head to the quaint town of Jasper, AR to the famous Blue Mountain Cafe. Their hand dipped ice cream will be the perfect way to cool off in the heat of the summer. You’ll have time to see the main square of this amazing town surrounded by the Ozark mountains before you head back to Branson!

This hike happens every Monday during the month of August!
