Silver Dollar City Star Spangled Summer Festival

Channel your inner Clark W. Griswold and pack the kids into the family truckster to head towards one of America’s Favorite Family Fun Parks, Silver Dollar City, to experience their Star Spangled Summer Festival.

Every summer Silver Dollar City, Branson’s premiere theme park destination, plans events and attractions to amaze and delight families. Starting June 3rd this year, and running through July 16th, your family will be treated to appearances by the imitable Harlem Globetrotters, your kids’ favorite cartoon characters, and fancy footed cloggers.

The Harlem Globetrotters have visited Branson for many fun-filled summers, and they will be making their final appearance this summer, so come see them while you can. You and your kids will marvel at the antics the Globetrotters dream up on the court. It’s a not-to-be-missed experience!

On select days of the festival, your kids can meet some friends from television including Spongebob, Patrick, Team Umizoomi, and Dora from Nickelodeon; Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, George Jetson, Astro, the Flintstones, and Tom & Jerry from Hanna Barbera; and the turtles in a half shell, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Check the event schedule for days and times.

And for dance fans, championship cloggers will be hoofin’ it up in Boatworks Theater. There will also be special buffets featuring delectable delights for everyone, but with a special emphasis on the kids of foods kids like to eat.

The whole festival celebrates the greatness of America and reverberates with patriotism, a perfect complement to America’s Independence, which is what Summer is all about anyway.
