Branson Is the Official Vacation Destination of the Kansas City Chiefs

Everyone loves a winner, but there’s something special about our nearby Kansas City Chiefs. And just a few hours south of Arrowhead Stadium is the NFL franchise’s new official vacation destination, Branson.

In August 2023, the Branson/Lakes Area Tourism Enhancement District announced a multi-year partnership with the Chiefs.

“We are deeply honored as our city becomes the first ever Official Vacation Destination of the Kansas City Chiefs. Millions of fans in Chiefs Kingdom will be exposed to Branson and all we have to offer in live music shows, attractions and family fun,” said City of Branson Mayor Larry Milton. “We are incredibly excited for our region to be showcased alongside the reigning Super Bowl Champions and the most popular sport in America.”

“We are excited and proud to partner with Branson and the Lakes Area to help elevate the exciting opportunities they offer for destination entertainment right here in Chiefs Kingdom,” Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. “Like GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, Branson serves as a bucket-list destination for people of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life and is a treasure located right in our backyard. We’d like to thank the City of Branson and the Branson/Lakes Area Tourism Community Enhancement District for their partnership. We look forward to getting this relationship off the ground and bringing new visitors to this incredible destination.”

As part of the partnership, Branson will host an annual in-market season kickoff rally with Chiefs personalities. In addition, Branson will have a major presence around the club’s NFL Draft coverage and fan events, including serving as the presenting partner of the annual Season Ticket Member Draft Fest at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

It’s a chance for Chiefs fans to engage with their favorite team in one of America’s favorite vacation destinations. Tailgating isn’t the only way to enjoy football season. Branson, Missouri has the perfect vacation playbook for you and your family!

Branson is located within a day’s drive for approximately one-third of the country’s population – and less than four hours from both Kansas City and St. Louis.
