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

Each year, thousands of guests attend the Festival to celebrate cowboy culture with a musical lineup of show-stopping talent, Dutch oven peach cobbler, trick ropers, shopping, activities for all ages, and more! The Cowboy Festival includes nearly a week of events, but the main two-day Festival takes place Saturday and Sunday, April 26-27, 2014 at a real working movie ranch, Melody Ranch ™ Motion Picture Studio – the former home of Gene Autry and current backdrop for Quentin Tarantino’s film Django Unchained.

As a distinguished member of the press, the City of Santa Clarita invites you to cover the sights, sounds, and flavors of the Festival.  To learn how you can attend, please visit the Cowboy Festival “Request a Media Pass”  page.

Please submit general press inquiries by e-mail.
