Want more info on how to garden successfully? You will thoroughly enjoy our broad range of speakers, with talks on such diverse subjects as: The Healing Power of Gardens (and garlic); Gardening for the Fun of it—Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff; Compost; Organic Gardening; and much more. These are free seminars and you may attend at your own leisure.

Our festivals have become a premier event for historic culture and music, last year drawing 60+ musicians from many different states, including the Legendary Sourdough Slim. You’re going to love tons of music ranging from Western, Country, Gospel, Folk, Blue Grass, Americana, and Irish—playing continuously both days on 3 stages. Enjoy some of Branson, Missouri’s finest talent and have your tapping toe ready!

The National Folk Music Contest is open to any contestant who is not a Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co. employee or a professional musician hired by Baker Creek. Free for any and all old-fashioned musicians, solo acts or groups. Bring your instrument or voice and go for the Grand Prize of $600 cash. There’s a second place cash prize of $200. Judging will be done by the audience. This is always a crowd-pleaser.

Over a hundred vendors selling old-fashioned fresh honey, fresh-baked bread, homemade jams and preserves, vegetable starts including tomatoes, raspberries, blueberries, and much, much more will tempt your palate and your inner gardening muse.

If you get hungry, there’s our new Earth Restaurant, with delicious meals made from scratch using local ingredients.
