Most people don’t think of Los Angeles when they think “Cowboy,” but L.A. is home to one of the world’s best cowboy gatherings—the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival!

Each year, thousands of people attend the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival to experience the best in authentic Western entertainment, apparel, gear, food and attractions – just 30 minutes north of Los Angeles. This 2015 Cowboy Festival will feature performances by more than 35 show-stopping acts, as well as trick ropers, gun spinners, living history exhibits and delicious cowboy chuckwagon cuisine, including the festival’s infamous dutch oven peach cobbler. Nearly a week of events will lead up to the main two-day Cowboy Festival on Saturday, April 18 and Sunday, April 19 at William S. Hart Park.
