Labor Day one last chance for Branson summer fun

Labor Day in Branson is a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful outdoors in Historic Downtown Branson, and also to get in some shopping for end-of-season sales!

Be sure to ride the Sparky trolleys to get around as you travel from Lake Taneycomo to Branson Landing to historic Main Street and the nearby shops and artisans.

While the usual Branson Landing summer concert series has been suspended to help visitors maintain social distance, there are still plenty of things to do in downtown, including watching the fire and water fountain show, walking along the boardwalk, or getting out on the water in kayak or on a paddleboard.

Outside of Downtown:

Chateau on the Lake will host its annual Labor Day fireworks celebration on Sunday, Sept. 6, at dusk. The presentation is visible from anywhere around Table Rock Dam.

For more shopping, there’s great Labor Day sidewalk sales going on at Tanger Outlets, Sept. 4-7.

The weekend is also the last days of the Southern Gospel Picnic at Silver Dollar City, featuring some of the nation’s top gospel performers.

Shepherd of the Hills historic homestead is hosting a fall Farmer’s Market that starts on Sept. 4 and runs through Halloween.

And there’s also one of the most unique annual Branson traditions: The AquaPlex Doggie Swim Night. The RecPlex’s summer pool season is ending on Labor Day, but before the water is drained, locals and visitors can bring their dogs for a canine swim party from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
