The Western Art Rodeo Association supports all Western Artists and the events/organizations that provide opportunities for Western Artists to gain recognition for their artwork. The W.A.R.A. is a proud supporter of Palm Springs West Fest and we hope you will support them also.
Palm Springs once again becomes Cowboy Central in late March. Back in the Hay Days of the mid-20th century, regular Western activities were held to promote Palm Springs and raise money for charities, with rodeo, parades, trail rides, Desert Circus and cowboy balls several times a year. Luminaries such as Gary Cooper, Bob Hope and Frank Bogert rode horses and wore upscale Western duds to glamorous social events. Now, it is all coming back!
Read below to learn more about the 25-acre Palm Springs WestFest and Rodeo. It is a Western World’s Fair where Old West meets The New West. It’s a Fantasy Camp for Cowboys! During Western Week, March 20-27, local merchants, visitors and townfolk are encouraged to dress cowboy style and feature special events, sales and specialty items to help create a Cowboy Central environment all over town.
Dates: March 24 – March 27 – 2011
