Arizona’s Wild West Renaissance Festival

One of America’s, and definitely Arizona’s, biggest Western events, the Wild Western Festival, is again riding into Glendale’s historic Sahuaro Ranch Park for three full days of family fun. 

On October 19, 20 & 21, Festival Producer Dr. Buck, a Hollywood stuntman and former General Manager of the world famous Ponderosa Ranch, of Bonanza TV fame, will transform all 17 acres of the park into what the Arizona media has called, “A Wild West Renaissance Festival”. 

It is the only event where “history meets Hollywood”, as guests enjoy action packed Wild West comedy gunfight and stunt shows, trick roping, gun spinning and trick horse performances by world champions, live music, cowboy historians and native American tribal dancers. 

There’s something for all ages at this one-of-a-kind event, from meeting your favorite classic TV and movie stars such as stuntman Neil Summers, Mike “Desperado” Moroff, Helene Udy from “Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman” and several more.  

The celebrity panel discussions will be hosted by the Chronicle of the Old West’s very own Dakota Livesay. Enter a good old fashioned pie eating contest, tug-of-war, sack race or one of the many other free, “Blue Ribbon” winning Country Fair contests. 

The Kids Korral has several bounce houses, face painting, train and pony rides and more. 

What really sets this Festival apart from every other Western event is the “Back in Time” atmosphere, not only created by all the Historic Buildings dating back to 1886, but also by the cast of two to three hundred authentically dressed 1880’s Wild West characters, many that are Dr Buck’s “Posse” of Official Festival Volunteers.
