Branson Bulletin - Southern Gospel Picnic & More

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.


Anyone can visit a zoo, but Branson visitors get a personalized animal experience offered at the Promised Land Zoo. Branson’s top-rated animal attraction – and only zoo – is dedicated to providing each and every visitor an unparalleled experience with live animal shows, a guided foot safari, interactions with flying birds and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to bottle-feed baby exotic animals such as kangaroos, zebras and camels.
