Santa Clarita, Calif. – The City of Santa Clarita’s Cowboy Festival, presented by California Resources Corporation, is set to return for its 27th year and will take place on April 18 and 19, 2020. William S. Hart Park will once again host the most entertaining festival in the West!

These special ticketed events include the Californio Fiesta De Rancho Camulos, a concert featuring seven-time Western Music Association “Entertainer of the Year” Dave Stamey and the Cowboy Dance with Syd Masters and the Swingers.

The main festival at William S. Hart Park will feature performances across five festival stages, as well as living history entertainers, food vendors, Western gear shopping and activities for all ages. Back by popular demand is the Chili Cook-Off, presented in partnership with Bridge to Home, which will delight taste buds and prove which chef’s recipe rules the West on Saturday, April 18.
Additionally, there will be a limited number of $100 VIP packages available. Each package includes special access to the festival at William S.
