Harvest Festival at Silver Dollar City is filled with sights, sounds and flavors celebrating everything we love about autumn in the Ozarks. By day and night there are endless ways to explore. You may have heard about the incredible fall menu featuring all things pumpkin spice and the nighttime fun of Pumpkins In The City presented by with new adventure in Foggy Hollow & the Wilson's Farm Expansion, but there is so much more to discover during this magical time of year. Here are just a few things we think you won't want to miss!
We’re not just talking about the massive carved sculptures and larger-than-life pumpkin icons here. There are literally THOUSANDS of real pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and varieties lining the streets and filling the flowerbeds along the Pumpkin Pathway. In addition to real pumpkins, you’ll also see a plethora of expertly-carved artificial pumpkins featuring friendly jack-o-lantern faces along with carvings of Ozarks nature and wildlife and highly-themed designs accenting signature Silver Dollar City park locations.
Celebrating cowboy culture has long been a tradition at Silver Dollar City during fall and this year that tradition lives on with some familiar faces and new friends, too. Anyone hankering for a taste of authentic cowboy cuisine will want to venture down to the Cowboy Camp just on the outskirts of Rivertown to see real chuck wagon ‘cookies’ in action as they whip up mouthwatering meals throughout the day and then compete in a friendly cook-off each afternoon at 3pm.
Another beloved staple of fall in The City is the welcoming of scores of visiting artisans in addition to Silver Dollar City’s own colony of resident craftsmen. From the moment you step on to The Square you’ll find talented folks demonstrating just about any kind of art or craft you can think of, and you’ll continue to discover new things to explore as you make your way through the park with shacks lining the streets and special areas like The Makers Market in the Frisco Freight Barn and Buck Taylor’s Cowboy Emporium in The Carousel Barn.
