Branson has always been a great place for Southern gospel music and good old-fashioned Southern cooking, and this year is no exception. Branson is kicking it up a notch with the Southern Gospel Picnic event at Silver Dollar City, presented by Humana. From August 24 through September 4, you can experience some of the biggest names in Southern gospel, along with outrageously good Southern food.
A variety of musicians will play throughout the day at multiple venues within the Silver Dollar City park. Your family will love tapping their toes to the beat! Nighttime brings the Southern Gospel Nights concerts at the 4,000 seat Echo Hollow Amphitheatre. These concerts start after park closing and feature some of today’s most popular performers. You can even purchase tickets to a Southern Gospel Music Cruise on the Showboat Branson Belle for a day you won’t forget!
Bring your appetite, and head over to Reunion Hall from 11:00 a.m. until park closing to feast at The House of Chicken and Fixin’s, featuring recipes from cookbook author and food blogger Christy Jordan. All you can eat, buffet-style dining lets you sample everything from Southern-style fried chicken to cabbage to banana pudding. If you’d rather enjoy a meal while watching one of the fantastic evening performances, take advantage of the Southern Gospel Box Suppers. You can enjoy the Southern Gospel Nights concert series on a back-porch rocking chair with a down-home box supper in hand.
