Since 1994, the Cowboy Festival’s full lineup has included events with partner agencies throughout the Santa Clarita Valley, while weekend programming has taken place at Melody Ranch Motion Picture Studio™.  Film contracts between Melody Ranch and a production company make it impossible to host both the production and Cowboy Festival’s weekend activities in 2015.

The 22nd annual event will provide the same level of music, entertainment, food, and shopping that Festival patrons have come to expect from the world-class event in a new, exciting setting.  Old Town Newhall is part of the City of Santa Clarita’s recently revitalized Arts and Entertainment District, which features historic and film-focused points of interest like the William S. Hart Ranch & Museum and Walk of Western Stars.
