 A new event will mosey into town — at Heritage Junction in Newhall adjacent to William S. Hart Park — this weekend.
SCV Wild West Days will offer a variety of fun activities — nearly something for everyone — Saturday and Sunday to benefit the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society.
“This is a new event for us,” said Scott Sively, co-chairman of the event with Ed Marg. “We hope everyone will stop by and enjoy the music, food and shows.”
Live music will be offered by the award-winning WMA musicians Tom Hiatt & The Sundown Riders on Saturday and the Cross Town Cowboys on Sunday.


The event will feature:

  • A ride out to the Cowboy Trail Encampment to experience what it was like to live in the Wild West in the 1800s;
  • The Reenactors Guild of America will offer historic stories of life in the West;
  • A humorous Wild West Show by Phil Spangenberger and the Spirit of the West Riders;
  • Chuckwagon;
  • Gold panning, with instruction provided by an authentic gold prospector;
  • Traders Jubilee, show and sale of Old West collectibles, reproductions, clothing, art and gifts;
  • Interact with Old West characters;
  • Tour the SP 1629 M4 Mogul locomotive, Edison House, Kingsburry House, Ramona Chapel and Callahan Schoolhouse;
  • Tour the SCV History Center and Museum;
  • See a privately owned Civil War collection on display for this event only;
  • See a privately owned Old West gun collection on display for this event only;
  • Living history presentations, historic displays and demonstrations;
  • And visit with famous movie stars, stuntmen and experts from Western films.

“This will be a family-friendly event,” said Sively. “It’s a great place for kids to come and learn about the real Old West.”
