There’s live entertainment all day, including a chuckwagon barbecue, free stage coach rides, cowboy poetry, candle making, gold panning, blacksmith and cowboy dip dunk tank. Buckaroos can get a hands-on taste of the cowboy life at the kiddy corral. Don’t forget about mutton bustin’ where young cowboys and cowgirls ride sheep for fame and glory. Try your hand at the Hangtown Horseshoe Tournament. Wet your whistle with suds, wine or moonshine.

This regional event brings together some of the areas finest musicians of the mouth harp to vie for cash, prizes and the best bragging rights around. Cheer on your favorite musician at the Hangtown Harmonica Championship.
