Old West Festival

Strap on your boots, slap on your chaps and dust off your hats: a little piece of rural Ohio is rolling back in time with the seventh annual Old West Fest. Some good old country land east of Cincinnati will be transformed for a little more than a month into an authentic 1878-style Dodge City Wild West town. Experience live retellings of rough scenes, stomp the streets among period presenters, explore old-time shops or slip into the saloon for a cold beer or some sarsaparilla. Folks of all ages can let their imaginations run wild with activities and entertainment that rivals any real town. Dress to blend in and you just might win the daily costume contest. 


10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Through October 12. $12 adults; $6 children. 1449 Greenbush Cobb Road, Williamsburg, oldwestfestival.com.
