National Cowboy Day

National Cowboy Day

     Join us in celebrating the cowboy heritage in Indiana as we relive the old west with cowboys, cowgirls, horses, bucking bulls, horsemanship & roping  demonstrations. See Soarin’ Hawks presentation of their birds of prey &  Jefferson the bald eagle! There will be cowboy music & entertainment on  the village stage along with blacksmith & chainsaw demonstrations. Visit

with Johnny Appleseed as he relives his stories & enjoy open fire cooking at  Granny Oagley’s.

For the buckaroos there will also be crafts, games, stick horse races, pony  rides and the Moose Trax Train will be running throughout the village.

     Check out some of the local artisan’s wares; old time photography and listen  to the Circuit Rider’s service or just enjoy the trip back in time to the days of  yesteryear and the old west as you spend time in the 1800’s village,  Mackey’s General Store, the Mercantile or to simply enjoy the village itself.

     Don’t forget to wear your western duds!
