Shepherd of the Hills Christmas | Holiday Shows, Lights & Cocoa—Branson, MO


With over 30 years of experience in hosting Christmas-themed FUN, Shepherd of the Hills once again rises to the occasion and offers enough live holiday shows, attractions, and dining options to make Santa and his Reindeer smile! Shepherd of the Hills is also offering one of their most prominent and beloved attractions— the Trail of Lights— which is a drive-thru filled with millions of Christmas lights, traditional displays, and specialty holiday tunes set on the local 106.7 FM radio station. Guests are allowed to carry up to 8 people per carload and are asked to turn off their headlights upon entry to enjoy the full effect of the drive-thru.

Also this year is the newly added North Pole Adventure walkthrough which will feature a livery stable housing real live reindeer from the “North Pole,” Rudolph’s Hayride, and an all-new craft area at Santa’s Workshop where visitors can make crafts and bring them home for the holidays.

In terms of shows, productions this year will include the Funny Farm Dinner Feud, WhoDunnit HoeDown – A Christmas Mystery, and A Shepherd’s Christmas Carol Dinner Show, and The Chuckwagon Dinner Show — all of which provide holiday entertainment and a meal!

What Others are Saying About A Shepherd’s Christmas Carol Dinner Show: 

“A spin-off of the Dicken’s Christmas Carol, and it was funny and heartwarming featuring their regular cast. The dinner of turkey and sides was surprisingly delicious. All in all, a different type of show than is usually offered in Branson.” Lynk11, TripAdvisor 2021

“Seating was excellent with plenty of room to have the dinner included with the show. The dinner was a thanksgiving type dinner with turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, green beans, dinner roll, which was outstanding. The show was very entertaining with many different and interesting characters performing a similar plot to ‘Scrooge.'” Spurgeony, TripAdvisor, 2021

“A great family show. Great food, lots of laughs, and an overall fun experience. Enjoyed the audience interaction. Would definitely recommend.” Merri, TripAdvisor, 2021
