Silver Dollar City welcomes another great festival to its theme park, The Southern Gospel Picnic, which begins August 28 and ends September 7.

Southern gospel music has always resounded through these Ozark hills, from country churches and county fairs to porch-side pickin’ sessions and Sunday services. Come hear that vibrant music again during America’s Biggest Southern Gospel Picnic.

See hundreds of performances from the top names in southern gospel music! The heavens will resound with the sweet sounds of your favorite southern gospel groups on stages throughout the park by day.

Then Echo Hllow® Amphitheatre will be serenaded with music from the famed Southern Gospel Nights concert series each evening.

Savor southern cooking at its best as The House of Chicken & Fixin’s and The Picnic Wagon return to the City’s square for this 11 day event! Find your family’s favorite styles of chicken, plus all the extras you love! Choose from our signature Slow Roasted Apple Glazed Chicken, delicious Smoked BBQ Chicken or our famous Southern Fried Chicken.

Also during Southern Gospel Picnic, Silver Dollar City will host special advance screenings of the movie Billy: The Early Years, about the early life of legendary American evangelist Billy Graham.

Screenings will be on Saturday and Sunday, August 30 & 31 at 5:30 in Red Gold Heritage Hall. The movie, which will be released in theaters nationwide in October, is directed by Robbie Benson and stars Martin Landau, Jennifer O’Neill, and country star Josh Turner playing George Beverly Shea.
