Mark your calendars for the amazing, revamped Western Legends Heritage and Music Festival on August 14-15, 2020! Kane County is stepping in to update this beloved festival and add great new elements, including country music and western heritage, making the festival bigger and better than ever. “The western movies filmed here and the amazing actors who were in the films have been such an exciting part of this event. However, for the event to survive, there needs to be a shift in focus to include additional major elements that will be sustainable for many years to come. We’re excited to be able to step in and add new, exciting elements to keep the event going and to stimulate attendance,” said Camille Johnson Taylor, Director of Kane County Office of Tourism. Western Legends Roundup will still be a label used for the parts of the event that deal with the movie stars. The new and improved event will include a two-day battle of country and western bands called, “Country Battle USA.” There will be 15 bands allowed to compete, with $15,000 in prize money. The winner will perform during a street dance finale on Saturday night. If you are interested in applying for Country Battle USA, the application can be found online at www.KanabWesternLegends.com. Other new elements include a costume contest, wagon rides, line dancing and melodramas, including a staged train robbery, and much more. New this year will be a rodeo. Guests at the festival will still enjoy favorite events like Dinner with the Stars, Breakfast with the Stars, the High Noon Parade with longhorn cattle, the wagon train, historic movie bus tours, the sanctioned Kansas City Barbeque Competition, the street fair with great craft and food vendors, and live entertainment on Friday and Saturday, August 14 and 15. The Western Legends Roundup board, Kane County Office of Tourism, and Kane County Events & Volunteer Center are spending great amounts of time, talent and effort while working together to make sure Western Legends will continue to be a great event for many years to come.
