Branson Bulletin - Southern Gospel Picnic & More


How sweet the sound of Southern Gospel music! Southern Gospel Picnic festival at Silver Dollar City is 11 days and nights, Aug 26-Sept 6, where you’ll see back-to-back concerts from chart-topping and award-winning artists. Between shows, savor Southern cooking at its finest at an all-you-care-to-eat feast inside The House of Chicken & Fixin’s and explore all the rides and fun at one of America’s top theme parks.


The Shepherd of the Hills Outdoor Drama, an action-packed live reenactment of the famous novel by Harold Bell Wright, with 90 actors, horses, sheep, mules and donkeys performed on a stage the size of a football field. There’s a shoot-out, the actual burning of a log cabin, a love story, a mystery and a moral message that is as true today as it was over a century ago. Published in 1907, this story tells of life in the rugged Ozark Mountains in the late 1800’s. Included in your ticket is the show, documentary dinner, self-guided tour of The Farm and Lil’ Pete’s Playland (farm is open two hours before show). Dinner starts at 6:00 pm. Make sure to select “w/Meal” when purchasing tickets.
