Old West Festival 2013

Old West Festival DiscountIt’s that time of year again.  The pools are closing.  The kids are back in school.  Leaves will start changing color.  Bonfires are being lit.  And…

The Old West Festival is back in town!

We went to the Old West Festival last year and had a blast.  We watched a horse riding show, got deputized, rode a covered wagon, collected wooden nickels and cowboyed up to the saloon for a rootbeer.  My son and I got to wear our cowboy boots and meander around the historically accurate old west town. 

This year the Old West Festival runs from September 7 to October 6 and is located at 1449 Greenbush Cobb Rd. in Williamsburg, Ohio 45176 (just off U.S. Rt. 32, near Greater Cincinnati). 

They are open Saturdays and Sundays only!  Hours are 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Rain or shine).

Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for kids ages  6 to 12.  Kids 5 and under are FREE.  Parking is FREE.  To receive a discount, as an FFC reader, please enter FFCC prior to payment online.

  10. Jessica S. says

    I visited the Facebook page and loved the photos–it showed a lot more of what to expect from the festival. Guitars and banjos? Fire swallowers? Baby goats? I have a feeling I’d never get my son out of his cowboy outfit after this!

  11. Jessica says

    My two-year-old son is currently head over heels for anything that he can ride on (or watch other people ride on)–a horse, a covered wagon, an old-fashioned train, a cowboy’s shoulders (a.k.a. the shoulders of his cowboy-hat-wearing daddy), you name it! He would love nothing more than an afternoon at the Old West Festival. Thanks for the opportunity to win!
