One of the nation’s greatest family friendly festivals is back at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. The Museum is celebrating the 21st Annual Chuck Wagon Gathering & Children’s Cowboy Festival, May 28 and 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Children can participate in numerous outdoor activities including pony rides, rope making, bandana designing, horseshoe pitchin’, crafts and more.
The food is fantastic! Ten chuck wagon crews cook such delicious fare as stew, brisket, sourdough biscuits, beans, cobblers and rice pudding for visitors to sample. Demonstration recipes are free to the audience and cookbooks are available for purchase at The Museum Store wagon.
Western musical entertainment is scheduled on two separate stages. Featured entertainers include Don Edwards, Red Steagall, Rich O’Brien, and Chuck Milner. Joining Chuck Wagon entertainment is the A—Bar Bunkhouse Band, a Western swing band. Other festival entertainers include Oklahoma Flyin’ Fiddler Wayne Cantwell, cowboy singer Jim Garling, and working cowboy singer/songwriter Gary Pratt. He will be accompanied by Susanne Woolley, violin and harmonies, and bass players Doyle Ellis and Trey Garrett.
Dr. H.P. Hedgethicket III, Esquire will hawk his many “remedies and cures” during a hilarious Old West Medicine Show. Oreo, the famous longhorn steer will be available for pictures with children. One of the best bargains of the day is the chance to visit the Museum’s fascinating galleries that tell the story of the West. Not only do children love the activities at the festival and the Children’s Cowboy Corral, they love to step back in time and walk down the streets of the Museum’s turn-of-the-century old Western town, Prosperity Junction.
