Branson, Missouri 2021
Brethren attending the Feast in Branson will again be holding their services at The Mansion Theatre, 189 Expressway Lane, Branson, 65616. This location allowed us last year to enjoy greater seating capacity and provide for social distancing and seating for services complying with the masking ordinance currently in place for the city of Branson. At this time, there is no expiration date on this ordinance.
The Mansion is located on the north side of Branson, a widely recognized, family-oriented resort town located in the hardwood-forested hills of the Ozarks. Fall colors provide a stunning, millennial setting during the Feast. An afternoon drive through the spectacular scenery brings you into close contact with God's beautiful creation. Nearby lakes are Table Rock Lake and Lake Taneycomo. At Taneycomo, you can tour the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery and conservation area for free.
In addition to its natural beauty, Branson is home to several museums including the Veterans Memorial Museum and the Titanic Museum. Showboat Branson Belle and the Branson Scenic Railway present enjoyable excursions into the local countryside. Kids will love the go-cart tracks and miniature golf courses. Fritz's Adventure is a dynamic family attraction that brings the excitement of outdoor adventure into a multi-dimensional indoor environment! Music enthusiasts are treated to at least 90 live music shows. This year the Sight & Sound theater in Branson presents “Jesus.”
Branson Landing offers waterfront shopping and dining in many upscale shops and fine restaurants. The College of the Ozarks is minutes away and is recognized for its unique values driven program. Campus services that are open to the public include dining and a gift shop.
The recently opened “Top of the Rock” Ancient Ozark Natural History Museum explores the rich past of the Ozarks. This venue also includes the Lost Canyon Cave and Nature Trail. Dogwood Canyon Nature Park is a nature preserve open for hiking, biking and tram tours.
Branson has a wide variety of housing options ranging from first-class hotels to kitchenettes and cabins. Also available are many reasonably priced condos overlooking the hills or lakes.
Weather during the Feast is usually mild with lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s.
