Discover New Cultures at Branson’s WorldFest!

The first of Silver Dollar City’s six festivals has begun and you won’t want to miss all the new entertainment this year’s WorldFest brings to the Ozarks. From April 7 to May 8, Silver Dollar City is transformed into a cultural bastion of dance, art, food and entertainment with the Russian Academic Band, Trinidad’s Footprints Diego Martin, and Ecuador Manta. New to this year’s WorldFest is Mayorov Russian Circus which showcases acrobats, clowns and amazing costumes. Canadian Powerhouse is a show not to be missed with their world-championship fiddlers and step-dancers. Also new is Rhythms of Rajasthan from India. Beautifully clothed folk dancers will enthrall audiences with their traditional instruments and enchanting voices. You will be transported to Ireland with the haunting melodies of Dearbhail Finnegan’s Irish Harp and Michael Londra’s voice. These are just a few of the many wonderful and unique artists and performers that are at this year’s WorldFest.

In between shows, sample foods from around the world plus try an all-new selection of International Nachos featuring spicy and traditional from Mexico; pasta chips smothered in delicious Italian ingredients from Naples and fries covered with roast beef and gravy from Ireland. And there is always the same wonderful food you find at Silver Dollar City throughout the year.

Don’t miss this year’s brand new addition, Half Dollar Hollar, created especially for the park’s youngest guests. Half Dollar Hollar features the Treetop Trail, full of treetop fun houses, climbing nets and mazes; Hugo and Mary’s Carousel; and Storybook Circle, where the little ones can relax for a time while listening to classic classic storybook tales.

  1. The best part of World Fest is the amazing food and talented performers! My husband and I like to go and skip the rides for one day and just see the fun shows at World Fest every year.

  2. I love it when Silver Dollar City hosts all of their festivals. I went to Bluegrass and BBQ last year. I think WorldFest sounds great, especially all the food.

  3. Seems like Silver Dollar City always comes up with great new ideas to entertain us each year. My young relatives will love to enjoy the new addition, Half Dollar Hollar. I,too, will look forward to the Storybook Circle…a cool and relaxing break!

  4. Worlds Fest is my favorite time of year at Silver Dollar City. There are so many different cultures represented at the Festival; it’s a lot of fun!

  5. I love Silver Dollar City, it seems like every year they are coming out with new things to do and see. Its amazing how if you are not someone that likes to ride a lot of rides they have shows and other events you can do while your there, which is a great thing!

  6. I would love to be able to see performers I have never got to see actual performers in person, so I think it would be a great and fun experience for me, not to metnion Silver Dollar City is amazingly fun!

  7. I was in absolute awe of Canadian Powerhouse. The level of musicianship was amazing and the best that’s been in Branson for years. The step dancing was equally amazing! Such a professional show too that runs so smoothly. I’m sure Silver Dollar City would like to change a few acts up for next year, but they would be absolute fools not to bring this group back.

  8. Powerhouse from Canada was spectacular. The two fiddlers shane and tom were out of this world. I have never seen that calibre of fiddling before! And stephanie was an unbelievable dancer, not to mention all the other dancers. I’m coming back for a week next year if this group is back!

  9. I look forward to World Fest every year. The international shows are great and I love them, but I think the food from all different cultures is my favorite part.

  10. This sounds like a very great opportunity to learn about new cultures. The best part about this event would be to see different performances from around the world and to try new foods from other cultures!!

  11. I’m so going to this in April this year. I’ve never been to anything like this at silver dollar city. I havent even been to Silver Dollar City in like 6 years so I’m real exicted this year to go.

  12. The nachos sound delicious. The food would be enough to get me to go, but all of the activities sound like they’d be exciting as well. I hope the Russian Circus comes back this year!
