You don’t have to travel far this fall to get a feel for what the Old West was like.
The Old West Festival is coming to you!
From September 7th – October 6th on Saturdays and Sundays rain or shine from 10am -6pm.
The Old West Festival takes visitors back in time to a Dodge City Wild West town circa 1878.
The permanent old west town is educational and fun for the entire family. Store fronts include antique, western-themed and hand-made crafts.
Period interpreters walk the streets, posing for photos or saying howdy.
Cold beer, sarsaparilla, soft drinks and food are served in the Long Branch Saloon. Young ‘uns can pan for gold; watch puppet shows; participate in a family sing-along to period music like ‘Coming Round the Mountain’; and even get sworn in as deputies, that is if they take the official oath.
If they choose, they’ll travel the frontier in covered wagons, on ponies or horses; riding the 19th century steam locomotive inspired Sante Fe Deadline, or visiting the pioneer village.
Historically accurate shows include medicine shows, saloon shows, magic, storytelling and can can dancers.
A variety of bluegrass acts will be on stage throughout the day…and much more. There are authentic jaw dropping gun fight reenactments by The Big Iron Rangers daily.”
