Ridgway Old West Fest Looking for Costumed Characters, Singers and Poets
The Ridgway Old West Fest returns to Ridgway September 24-26 for a fun-filled weekend jam-packed with rides, tours, a music concert, lectures, movies and even a wild west show.
A highlight of the festival will be a Western heroes and villains look-alike contest and the winner will receive a $100 check. “We had a great contest last time and those who told a little bit about their character and something about their costume impressed the crowd the most,” said Ed Bovy of the Ridgway Western Heritage Society.
“There will be an open mic karaoke session plus an open mic cowboy poetry/Western music session and we encourage the public to participate,” he said.
