Stars

Meet the Men and Women who helped create Kanab, Utah's "Little Hollywood".

Meet the Men and Women who helped create “Little Hollywood” and the many wonderful classic western movies we all love.

Each year we round up artists who not only portray western legends on film but who are western legends themselves. Without these hard-working men and women our eyes never would have been opened to both the rugged and romantic side of the Wild West. The landscape of the West speaks to us, but these actors give it a voice. Something that sets our modern Legends apart from the characters they portray is that after the film director says “Cut!”, instead of riding off into the sunset, they continue to face the same challenges that many of us do. They have homes, families, infirmities, and many demands for their time.

We are thankful these stars are able to attend this years’ Western Legends Heritage & Music Festival. Please be aware that some of the stars listed here may have other obligations or priorities that may arise at a moments notice. If a star listed here is unable to attend the event we will update this list.
