In the hey-day of Dodge City, cowboys would spend a months wages on entertainment. After a long , hard ride on the prairie they would enjoy Saloon Piano, a show at the Theater and occasionally a brush with the law! Find all the same amusements at the Old West Festival, without the cattle drive!
There will be something for everyone. We will have music, rides, a saloon show and even some fun gunfight reenactments! Please check below for more information.
Note: The festival is open rain or shine and all entertainment events will proceed as scheduled, with the exception of the Congress of Tough Riders. If the safety of the riders and horses is of concern; this scheduled event may be cancelled due to weather.
