Old West Festival
Spectacular scenes like those of John Wayne and James Stewart movies will be retold in live action this September as the Old West Festival – a one-of-a-kind event in Ohio – rolls back into town at its permanent site just 15 minutes from I-275, east of Cincinnati. The fifth annual Old West Festival – running weekends September 8 to October 7 – will transform rambling acreage of beautiful country into an authentic Dodge City Wild West town dating back to 1878. Come in your best period attire. We have a patron "costume" contest each day in the Long Branch Saloon at 1pm.
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.
