Salute the American West during National Harvest & Cowboy Festival at Silver Dollar City

Celebrate the West during National Harvest & Cowboy Festival at Silver Dollar City. The Branson theme park welcomes hundreds of visiting craftsmen during the festival, scheduled for September 12th through October 27, 2018. All-new shows, craftsmen, western musicians and delicious food make this year’s National Harvest & Cowboy Festival one not too miss.

What is the National Harvest & Cowboy Festival?

The National Harvest & Cowboy Festival harkens back to the pioneer days, as 125+ demonstrating craftsmen create works of art ranging from weaving to soap making, all with authentic costumes and tools. Bluegrass and folk bands also perform traditional tunes from the cowboy days of old. Dancers and other performers put on interpretive shows that evoke the pioneer spirit throughout the park. Although the food, thankfully, is modern although festival-goers may be able to catch a few frontier cooking workshops demonstrating cast-iron skillet or dutch oven recipes.
