4 Reasons You Need to Experience a Branson Christmas Show
As a Blogging Branson Ambassador, I was invited to experience an Ozark Mountain Christmas as part of a media trip. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
Each time I visit Branson, I’m blown away by the talent that can be discovered there. Everyone always thinks Hollywood, New York and Vegas when they think of singers, actors and incredible performances. You rarely hear of Branson, Missouri. But let me tell you, if you haven’t been you’re missing out on some of the best shows in the country.
From choreography, skit ideas, lighting and which songs to sing most of the performances are family ventures. The theaters are owned and run by those you see on stage! And that all adds to the small town, Christmas feeling which makes it a fantastic holiday destination.

Have a Down Home Country Christmas – Branson’s Famous Baldknobbers
The variety show that started it all brings a good ole fashion hoedown with a dash of Christmas spirit to the stage! With Brandon Mabe now at the helm, the Mabe family has kept the Baldknobbers legacy alive in Branson for 58 years.
You will be thrilled to know they won’t miss out on the traditional show just because it’s Christmas in Branson. The Mabe’s along with Layne Victoria and Shane VanCamp were stunning with their renditions of some country favorites.
The Christmas part of the show will have you toe tapping and clapping along with the upbeat tempo of holiday classics. My favorite is when the band takes the stage to showcase their incredible talents! And when it’s time to slow it down to honor the true reason for Christmas, you’ll have goosebumps when listening to Megan Mabe sing “Oh Holy Night”.
But don’t you worry – Droopy Drawers and his buddy, Hargus will be there in all their shining glory. And they’re sure to be causing all sorts of trouble!The Christmas show starts on November 1st and runs through December on select nights at 8 pm at the Branson Famous Theatre (645 State Hwy 165).
