Event details

Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2016
5-9 p.m. 
Downtown and Festival Park 

Don't miss the cattle drive!

The Old West comes to life before your eyes as cowhands from Searle Ranch drive a herd of longhorn steer and cattle through Downtown Castle Rock.

Starting from Rock Park, then continuing along Perry Street, the herd will converge onto Second Street and into Festival Park.

The longhorns will be corralled on Second Street for a bit for everyone to get a closer look!


Providing entertainment for the evening will be Liz Masterson, the "Songbird of the West" and her Western Variety show. Spiced with fiddle, mandolin, sizzling guitar, bass, and harmonies, Liz's and her company of cowboy poets will enthrall with their tall tales and folk songs.

Make an evening out of it with cowboy cocktails, Old West food options and western artwork.
