Baldknobbers Celebrate Christmas Season in Branson

The Christmas season is in full swing in Branson, Missouri.

Enjoy the fun of the Baldknobbers Christmas Show.

At Branson’s first show, the Baldknobbers, our Christmas show opened last week.  During November and December, in the first half of the Baldknobbers Show, guests enjoy the best of this year’s country show. Then after intermission, the curtain goes up on Baldknobbers Family Christmas.  The Baldknobbers Christmas shows run through December 28, 2011.

Did you know Branson is open after Christmas? Many Christmas shows and attractions are going strong.  It’s a great way to extend the Christmas experience for you and your family.  You can get specific show schedules from the Branson Convention & Visitors Bureau website www.ExploreBranson.com.

Most people think Branson is getting ready to slow down at the end of the year, but not the Baldknobbers. We just announced shows in February. Join the Baldknobbers on February 17, 18, 24 and 25, 2012, and look for Hot Winter Fun packages at www.Baldknobbers.com.

The Baldknobbers are one of the few shows that perform an all new show each year. On Friday March 2, 2012, the Baldknobbers will open our all-new 2012 show.

For those who aren’t familiar with the Baldknobbers, the Branson family entertainment phenomenon began more than 50 years ago in 1959, when the four Mabe brothers, known as the Baldknobbers, started Branson’s first country music and comedy show.

Now, more than 50 years later, the second and third generations of the Mabe family carry on the family tradition of great country music and hilarious comedy.  Both longtime Baldknobbers’ fans and new fans alike appreciate the Baldknobbers’ family traditions that have made this show popular from generation to generation.

Lastly, on behalf of the Baldknobbers, thank you for all the well wishes and congratulations on the Baldknobbers Smithsonian donation.  On January 28, 2011, the Baldknobbers founder’s original costumes and instruments became part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington DC.
