What to See and Experience at the Wild West Fest!

Travel back in time and spend a weekend at the Wild West Fest! Come early and tour at your own leisure to experience the Wild West! We are always adding new programs to the event. No two years are the same. Most of our spectators return year after year to enjoy new history experiences!

Gun Battles

On the frontier, law enforcement was scarce. Pioneers had to defend themselves. Rugged individuals carried firearms and knew how to use them. You can catch a whiff of gun smoke and get a feel for what it might have been like in a Wild West gunfighter town!

Activities for kids are featured at The Wild West! From pony rides to hay rides, panning for gemstones, and tomohawk throwing contests, history comes alive!
