Dayton Giveaway: Old West Festival {4 Tickets}

Step back into time to the year of 1878 at the Old West Festival that runs every weekend from Sept 10-October 9. This is a one-of-kind-event where you can experience life in the permanent old west town and experience scenes from your favorite John Wayne Movies. I had not heard of this festival before and was shocked to find that it is only located 15 minutes from i-275, just east of Cincinnnati.

You will feel like you stepped back in time with the sights, sounds and smells from Old West Festival.  They have hand crafted Western Store Fronts, re-enactment gunfights throughout the day, live music and entertainment,  Rodeo drill teams, or even refreshments in the Long Branch Saloon.  You can see the full schedule of events to plan your whole day!

There are a ton of activities for the kids to enjoy.  Here are some activities that you will want to do with them.

  • Games
  • Panning for Gold
  • Puppet Shows
  • Face Painting
  • Playset
  • Musical Entertainers
  • Covered Wagon Rides-$3 per Adult
  • Pony Rides-$5 per rider

You can also take a ride on the Abigail Express Children’s Train that they can take a 10 minute ride and you will want to be on the lookout for robbers.  The cost is $1 for Kids under 12 and $3 for Adults.  This will be alot of fun for you cowboy and cowgirls and will bring the old west to life for them.

The hours are 10am-6pm on Saturday and Sundays through October 9.  Admission is $10 for Adults, $6 for Kids 6-12 years and Free for kids under 5.  Parking is Free!

I know this would be FUN for the entire family and my boys love to dress up and act like cowboys.  So are you ready to go back in time of the Old West, then you will want to enter into our giveaway for 4 Tickets to the Old West Festival.
