WWD_Color-LogoExperience the western life at Old Tucson’s Wild West Days!

This three-day festival features the Wild West Parade, and guests showcasing western entertainment for guests of all ages! Enjoy:

  • Kowboy Kal, an old-school Wild West Entertainer who specializes in fancy trick roping, gun play and bull whips sometimes even while standing on horseback! After watching him perform his rope tricks you’ll swear he was born with a rope in his hand. He is a Guinness Book World Record Holder of the Largest Wedding Ring Loop (100 feet)!  Kowboy Kal will be performing and interacting with Old Tucson guests each day of the event.
  • Gary Harper, noted weapons expert, will demonstrate large and small arms including the Gatling gun, one of the WWD-Kalbest known early rapid-fire weapons and a forerunner of the modern machine gun. Gary has consulted with and provided historical military weapons for a number of film and television productions including The Last Samurai, 3:10 to Yuma, Deadliest Warrior, Sons of Guns, and True Caribbean Pirates. Gary will share his knowledge and expertise each day of the event.

Additional scheduled special appearances (subject to change) over the weekend by local historical groups include:

  • Buffalo Soldiers will share the history and contributions of these dedicated soldiers in the taming and settlement of the West on Saturday and Sunday
  • The Mormon Battlion

Wild West Days also showcases Old Tucson’s full range of western entertainment including live stunt and musical shows as well as Living History presentations describing everyday lives of Southern Arizona pioneers. Topics include The American Cowboy, Sheriffs of the Old West, The General Mercantile, and more.  These entertaining yet educational experiences allow guests a glimpse into what daily life was like on the western frontier.
