Are you looking for the best Branson shows for kids for your family vacation?  

As a mom of 4 and family photographer in the Branson area, our family has been to many Branson shows for kids recommended by clients over the years in the area. There are so many fun ways to entertain the whole family!  I recently put out a survey and have gathered Branson’s 8 top-recommended kids’ shows based on over 200 local parents’ responses.  We have tried most of them, and our family has LOVED them all. 

Top 8 Recommended Branson Shows For Kids

1. Amazing Acrobats of Shanghai

The Amazing Acrobats of Shanghai is a fantastic performance to watch the cast twist, bend and contort themselves in a way you never thought possible!  It is so fun to watch, and my kids had a blast watching.`

2. Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner Attraction

Dolly Parton’s Stampede is one of Branson’s most popular family shows. With its fun singing, dancing, horse riding, and competitions while eating a full three-course dinner.  It is so fun for all ages but one of the best ones for kids in my opinion.

3. The Haygoods

The Haygoods are my favorite singing show in Branson. They are a family with non-stop energy, music, singing, dancing, and stage effects.  They are great at keeping the crowd involved and entertained.  We go to each of their shows throughout the year, and my whole family LOVES it. (even my energetic toddlers).  Make sure to get your tickets early because I know they are known for selling out quickly.

4. Amazing Pets Show

The Amazing Pets Show is a hilarious show filled with amazing dogs and cats performing a comedic performance that keeps the whole family laughing. It is also significant that when we went, its one of the few morning shows we found, so it was perfect for my napping kids to enjoy.  This is located at Grand Country Indoors and can be so fun if you are staying at their hotel.

5. SIX

I have taken my kids to the SIX show since they were a few months old.  The SIX show is a band of brothers who sing acapella.  We love going to their Christmas show.

6. Reza’s Magic Show

Reza Magic Show is full of up-close tricks to full-stage productions that offer unbelievable entertainment that will wow the whole family.  Reza is known for being on Duck Dynasty, MTV, A&E, and many other special TV specials, theatres, and stadiums worldwide.

Hamner’s Unbelievable Variety Show has magic, singing, dancing, variety acts, incredible illusions, and comedy along the way so your whole family can enjoy a fun-filled performance on stage. 

8. Rick Thomas Magic Show

The Rick Thomas Magic Show is so fun with its unbelievable and fascinating illusions and magic.  Rick Thomas is known for being on TV and touring Broadway worldwide.

9. Sight and Sound Theatre

The Sight and Sound Theatre takes a theatre performance to a new level.  Their shows are Bible-based, filled with inspiring stories, massive sets, special effects, and sometimes even live animals!
