Kanab’s Western Legends Heritage & Music Festival
Join us August 24, 25 & 26, 2023 for Kanab’s Western Legends Heritage & Music Festival, as we remember and celebrate our western heritage of old tough and true cowboys, movie history and the stars that come with, as well as music old and new that keep our western hearts alive.
Previously, Western Legends Roundup has been an event that generations have attended and loved for the last 20+ years. Throughout Western Legends Roundup’s 20+ years there has been a celebration and remembrance of the movies and stars that were a pivotal part of creating “Little Hollywood” in our scenic Southern Utah community.
As the years go on, many film producers sought out Kanab and surrounding Kane County as the perfect backdrop for their productions, using local cowboys and cowgirls for their heritage and talents. Even as you drive through our scenic highways and byways, or even an occasional back road, you can still see the remnants of days gone by.
The event will include a two-day battle of country and western bands called, “Country Battle USA.” There will be 6 bands allowed to compete, and $10,000 in prize money – winner takes all. The winner will perform during a street dance finale on Saturday night.
Don’t forget to join us for the wildest rodeo in all of Kane County! See tough and true cowboys continue in their western heritage with Bull Riding, Bare Back Broncs, Saddle Bronc, Barrel Racing, Jr Bulls, Peewee Steers, Mutton Busting, and Team Roping at the end of the night. Western Legends Heritage & Music Festival Rodeo will take place Friday, August 25, 2023 at the beautiful Kaneplex Arena overlooking Jackson Flat Reservoir and the glowing red cliffs of Kanab.
Kanab’s Western Legends Heritage & Music Festival will bring fun for all generations that share a love for the western spirit we hold so dear to our hearts.
