Awesome Lake of the Ozarks Events This September - Cars, Planes, & Bikes... OH MY!

 If you thought that all the fun to be had ended around here with Labor Day Weekend, you'd better think again! In addition to having tons of reasons to get yourself back to Backwater Jack's over the next few months, September alone brings with it tons of annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks that you don't want to miss.  

This Weekend - On the Ground & In the Air

This coming weekend is jam-packed with two exciting events and our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant is sandwiched right in the middle of them! First up, the 32nd Annual Lake of the Ozarks Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals is taking over the historic Bagnell Dam Strip in Lake Ozark Friday, September 11-Sunday, September 13. Central Missouri's largest car show is an event for all ages. The Strip becomes a mile-long "parking lot" for the weekend, filled with many makes, models, and years of cars, trucks, and motorcycles. All the info you need can be found at

On the other side of us at the Camdenton Memorial Lake Regional Airport is the Lake of the Ozarks Air Show on Saturday, September 10. This family-fun event takes most of the action to the skies, although there's still a ton of stuff to do on the ground as well. You can check out a B-52 Bomber up close, marvel at breathtaking air shows, visit vendor booths, and a whole lot more. New this year, the Traveling Memorial Vietnam Wall will be arriving at the airport on Friday and remain there for viewing through Sunday. For more details, visit

Next Week - Bikefest!

Just a few days after the weekend excitement above, Bikefest Lake of the Ozarks once again hits the lake area! September 16-20, 2020, expect to see bikes everywhere that you look! While there will be exciting activities happening all over the place, a huge chunk of the fun will be going on right here at Backwater Jack's! (You know, like usual!) 

Directly related to the Bikefest, we are a Bikefest Passport Stop again this year. You will need to have your passport stamped by us, as well as all of the other participating locations, before it can be turned in on Sunday for your chance to win a brand new Harley-Davidson FLHP Road King Police Motorcycle. Passports can be picked up right here at Backwater Jack's or at any of the stops on the route for a $20 entry donation.

Fun at Backwater Jack's

In addition to the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks happening at Backwater Jack's that we've already listed above, there's a ton of other awesome reasons to get yourself on over to our lakeside restaurant & bar at the Lake of the Ozarks during these events, in between these events, and even after these events are over! 

  • The Pool & Swim-Up Bar - It's still plenty warm enough to enjoy some fun in the sun chilling out in and around the best lakeside pool at the Lake of the Ozarks.  
  • The Daily Specials - The food and drinks are always special around here, but every Sunday-Thursday, the pricing on many items is even more special than usual!
    • Sunday Fun Day - Discounts on Bloody Marys and Mimosas PLUS, the NFL starts this weekend!
    • Crabby Ol' Mondays - Discounts on pounds of Snow Crab plus Rum Runners and Pain in the A**'s.
    • Tequila Tuesdays - Buy-One-Get-One-Half-Off on house Margaritas and shots of Jose Cuervo or Sauza. 
    • Wine-O-Wednesdays - $5 off any bottle of wine or $1 off house wines by the glass.
    • Raw Deal Thursdays - By-the-item discounted pricing on oysters, wings, and shrimp plus great deals on canned beer. 
  • The Menu - The main restaurant features our unique brand of "Coastal Cuisine with a Midwestern Flair" featuring items like Jack's Baked Nachos, Raw Oysters on the Half Shell, a Triple Decker BLT, Backwater's Cuban Sandwich, and a whole lot more. Oh, and don't forget our famous Fried Potato Salad! Then, down by the pool you'll find the best sushi at the Lake of the Ozarks

So as you can see, Labor Day is NOT the end of excitement around here. As a matter of fact, we're not even close to stopping the party at Backwater Jack's! We'll expect to be seeing a lot of you before the season comes to an end which will be many, many weeks away from now!
