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 16 through October 31, 2015. Purchase your Silver Dollar City tickets today to enjoy the salute to the American cowboy in Branson, Missouri.  All-new shows, craftsmen, western musicians and delicious food make this National Harvest & Cowboy Festival one not too miss.

The National Harvest & Cowboy Festival harkens back to the pioneer days, as dozens of demonstrating craftsmen create works of art ranging from fiddle making and weaving to soap making and jewelry, all with period-correct costumes and tools. Bluegrass and folk bands play traditional tunes that would have been the soundtrack to the cowboy days of old. Dancers and other performers put on interpretive shows that evoke the pioneer spirit. The food, thankfully, is modern although festivalgoers may be able to catch a few frontier cooking workshops demonstrating cast-iron skillet or dutch oven recipes.
