Festival Of The West
Scottsdale, AZ
                                              now discontinued
 

 

The country's largest celebration of the Old West and the American Cowboy. A visit to The National Festival of the West, presented by Bison Ranch, in Scottsdale, Arizona is like a step back in time, back to an era that was simpler and certainly more rugged. There is plenty to see and do at The National Festival of the West. Western music, from three continuously playing stages, fills the air with songs and sounds of the old west. Silver screen celebrities stroll the aisles of the Festival, while the western movie theater shows some of our favorite westerns.

 

The gentleman who ran the show died, and even though an attempt was made to bring it back, the Festival remains dormant because it just hasn't been the same.
