Festival Hours 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Visitors to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum enjoy family entertainment at its finest during the annual Chuck Wagon Gathering & Children’s Cowboy Festival. On Memorial Day weekend, authentic chuck wagon crews prepare delicious cowboy favorites for folks to sample, like biscuits and stew, beans and cobblers.
Stage entertainment ranges from a hilarious Old West Medicine Show to the sounds of acclaimed western singer Red Steagall and balladeer, Don Edwards. Activities include stagecoach and covered wagon rides, weaving and rope making. When the sun gets too hot, visitors find their way up the hill to enjoy the sprawling museum complex, or watch their children take part in the hands-on activities in the children’s building. Chosen by the American Bus Association in 2004 as one of the Top 100 Events in North America, this exciting event attracts more than 10,000 people.
