Winter sends the tourists packing, but the April spring weather brings Branson back to life! Most shows close down at the end of November or December for a small hiatus, as well as most of the attractions, restaurants, and hotels. The NAIA national tournament kicks off Branson’s Spring Season.
A good thing about coming to Branson in April is that even though there will definitely be more tourists in town, the full crowds aren’t here yet. You will have to wait in line at Silver Dollar City, or you might have a small wait at a restaurant, but it will be nothing like if you travel to Branson during June or July.
Most shows in Branson changes their shows up each year, and if you visit Branson during April you will be one of the first to see what new acts and skits the wonderful entertainers of Branson have in store for you! Show times ticket prices are also less expensive during this time of year, because shows are practicing their new shows and not as many tourists are in town. During April 15 through the 24, Branson hosts a Springtastic Show Spree where tourists can come and enjoy ten different Branson shows for one low price. This is a great opportunity to save some money and get in as much of a Branson experience as you can during your stay.
