Festival Details

Visitors will be stepping back in history to a time when famous lawmen like Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp reigned, where gamblers such as Doc Holliday played faro and Boothill was a place you didn’t want to be at the end of the night.

Just like in the REAL Dodge City...The Carrying of Firearms is strictly prohibited.

September 9 - October 15, 2017 | Saturdays & Sundays | 10am - 6pm

Six Stages Full of Family Entertainment

Long Branch Saloon

Belly up to bar for a drink and catch a show!


See Ginger and the Top Hands perform on horseback and root for your favorite rider to win the horseback cowboy contest.


Tales and hijinks of the old west.


Home of cowboy church, a shotgun wedding, and even an old fashioned melodrama.


Take a load off with a drink and hear prairie readings and life of the old west lawman and cowhand.


Sing along with songs you know and learn a few you don't!

Food, Drinks & Kid's Activities

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.

It 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.


The Beatty & Kelly Restaurant is located in the heart of Dodge City. Here you will find hearty Old West dishes like turkey legs and rattlesnake chili that will keep you going throughout your adventure.
