Western Legends Heritage and Music Festival
Mark your calendar for the 23rd annual Western Legends Heritage and Music Festival on August 26-27, 2021.
Enjoy legendary, western movie stars, heroic bull riders, toe-tapping country music and
one-of-a-kind western art and craft vendors assembled in one epic location–, Kanab, Utah. Round up the family for this red-rock adventure and attend the ultimate cowboy experience.
For the fans of the classic western movies, tickets are available for dinner and breakfast with the stars, plus autograph signings, panel discussions and much more in the beautiful Kanab Center. If you love Gunsmoke as much as we do, you’ll love watching Mark Staggs, our favorite Festus impersonator too.
Tickets are available for the action-packed Western Legends rodeo Friday night beginning at
6:30 p.m. World famous bull and bronc riders compete for the cash and buckle that comes with winning the title of Champion. Watch the speed and agility of the ropers and barrel racers with their athlete horse companions. Early arrivals will get the treat of a teaser song from each of the six bands competing in the country battle of the bands.
Speaking of the country battle of the bands, or County Battle USA, you will enjoy some of the
best up-and-coming country bands in the country competing for $15,000 in prize
money- winner takes all! Each band will perform once on Friday and again on Saturday. The winner will then perform Saturday evening at the crowd-favorite street dance on North Main Street.
While listening to those sweet country tunes, enjoy shopping for that one-of-a-kind gift at the
street fair with western arts and craft vendors, and enjoy a tasty meal from one of our many food vendors. Make sure to wander down the street to watch one of Dr. Buck’s Wild West Shows, a comedy gunfight with Hollywood stuntmen.
If you grew a sweet patch of hair on your face during the pandemic, don’t shave it off just yet. Featuring for the first time this year- Dr. Buck’s Facial Hair Fiasco, Beard and Mustache Contest. Just imagine the bragging rights you’ll have if you win! Check out the site for the categories.
If you reminisce of the classic country songs of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Patsy Cline and all the past greats in country music, you can purchase tickets to the Country Legends Tribute concert on Saturday evening between the final act of the country battle of the bands and the street dance.
Don’t miss the crowd-pleasing, High Noon Parade with longhorn cattle and the wagon train on
Saturday at you guessed it, Noon! The Wagons will be staged at Parry Lodge on Friday and Saturday available for an old west wagon ride on Center Street.
