All press planning to take photos at the event must also complete an online Photographic Release Form.

Press/Media Permit (Exhibit A)

The City of Santa Clarita requires that all Press/Media representatives that desire access to the Cowboy Festival complete this form and return to obtain press/media credentials for entrance. Due to the unique layout of the festival, including performances at private venues, a limited number of press/media credentials will be issued. All approved Press/Media organizations will be issued Press Passes, which must be presented at the Cowboy Festival Shuttle Site in order to access the event. Approved press must park at the Cowboy Festival shuttle site. All applications for press access to William S. Hart Park and private venues on Main Street (the Canyon Theatre Guild, Repertory East Playhouse and the VU Bar & Lounge) must be submitted 30 days prior to the event.
