Dear Western Legends Fans,

We are happy to announce that we are moving forward with Western Legends Heritage and Music Festival this year on August 14th and 15th. We have modified the event in order to adapt to the ever changing landscape resulting from COVID-19.

We love our movie stars and have decided to suspend that portion of the event in order to protect them and not put them in a position to violate any of their own state’s travel orders or the challenges of quarantining upon their return. They are a valuable part of our event and will be greatly missed this year. We look forward to their return in 2021.

All of the events for 2020, will be conducted outside to better accommodate social distancing in open air.

This year we have the following scheduled:

Aug 14th:

  • Vendor Fair
  • Country Battle USA band competition
  • KCBS BBQ Competition
  • Rodeo @ Kane Plex Arena

Aug 15th:

  • Vendor Fair
  • Country Battle USA
  • KCBS BBQ Competition
  • High Noon Parade
  • Chris Peterson Concert and Street Dance

Everything is free to attend except the rodeo which costs $5 per person.

For more information, please go to KanabWesternLegends.com.  

 

 

Join us August 14 & 15, 2020 for Kanab’s Western Legends Heritage & Music Festival, as we remember and celebrate our western heritage of old tough and true cowboys, movie history and the stars that come with, as well as music old and new that keep our western hearts alive.

Previously, Western Legends Roundup has been an event that generations have attended and loved for the last 20 years. Throughout Western Legends Roundup’s 20 years there has been a celebration and remembrance of the movies and stars that were a pivotal part of creating “Little Hollywood” in our scenic Southern Utah community.

As the years go on, many film producers sought out Kanab and surrounding Kane County as the perfect backdrop for their productions, using local cowboys and cowgirls for their heritage and talents. Even as you drive through our scenic highways and byways, or even an occasional back road, you can still see the remnants of days gone by.

The new and improved event will include a two-day battle of country and western bands called, “Country Battle USA.” There will be 6 bands allowed to compete, and $15,000 in prize money – winner takes all. The winner will perform during a street dance finale on Saturday night.

Don’t forget to join us for the wildest rodeo in all of Kane County! See tough and true cowboys continue in their western heritage with Bull Riding, Bare Back Broncs, Saddle Bronc, Barrel Racing, Jr Bulls, Peewee Steers, Mutton Busting, and Team Roping at the end of the night. Western Legends Heritage & Music Festival Rodeo will take place Friday, August 14, 2020 at the beautiful Kaneplex Arena overlooking Jackson Flat Reservoir and the glowing red cliffs of Kanab.

Kanab’s Western Legends Heritage & Music Festival will bring fun for all generations that share a love for the western spirit we hold so dear to our hearts.
