Arkansas banking company Arvest Bank is now an official sponsor of one of Missouri’s most popular tourist destinations.

Arvest officials announced Thursday (March 11) a 10-year marketing agreement to be the “Official Sponsor of Family Fun” at Branson-based Silver Dollar City Attractions. The company operates Silver Dollar City theme park, White Water water park, the Showboat Branson Belle and the Silver Dollar City Campground.

Arvest Bank is also the presenting sponsor of Silver Dollar City’s Star-Spangled Summer and Echo Hollow amphitheater, with a season of concerts.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“We are very excited to begin this strategic collaboration with Arvest Bank,” Brad Thomas, president of Silver Dollar City Attractions, said in a statement. “Arvest’s commitment to their communities, along with their reputation for delivering great customer service aligns well with our brand and our culture. Our guests are our top priority, and we know that Arvest’s customers are their top priority as well.”

Silver Dollar City opens its 2021 season on March 17.

“Silver Dollar City offers a unique atmosphere and experience that can’t be found at any other theme park in America,” Jason Kincy, senior vice president and marketing director for Arvest Bank, said in a news release. “We are looking forward to working with this talented team and doing our part in making their guests’ visit fun and memorable. Additionally, we have worked with Silver Dollar City to obtain various savings on ticket purchases as an added benefit for our customers.”

Arvest Bank customers who use their Arvest debit or credit card when purchasing one-day tickets on-site to Silver Dollar City, White Water or the Showboat Branson Belle will save $7 off of each one-day regular admission ticket during the entire 2021 season, with a limit of six tickets per day.

As part of the Star-Spangled Summer, Arvest Bank customers who purchase a regular admission, one-day ticket at Silver Dollar City with their debit or credit card in June will save $10 per ticket on up to six tickets per day. Savings for Arvest Bank customers will be announced prior to the season annually.

Arvest Bank operates more than 270 bank branches in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas through a group of 14 locally managed banks, each with its own board and management team.

The company also has sponsorship agreements in place for Arvest Ballpark in Springdale, home of the Northwest Arkansas Naturals minor league baseball team, and at Arvest Bank Theatre at The Midland, a concert venue in downtown Kansas City, Mo.
