Approximately 4500 people were in Kanab from August 27-30 to celebrate the Western Legends Round-Up weekend.


From cowboy poetry to music, food to cowboy demonstrations and western stars who made films here; the event was a huge success, celebrating the community’s western heritage. The fiddle contest and tractor pull were great crowd pleasers. The Indian drummers and dancers thrilled the crowds with Native American music. The evening music shows by headliners Sons of the San Joaquin, Western Underground Band and cowgirl singer Eli Barsi were terrific and well-attended. The entertainment on the street stages provided wonderful music.


There was also a great crowd lining the streets for the always popular High Noon Parade on Saturday. 


Festival chairman and Kanab City Councilman Steve Mower said the event was a great success. “We are grateful for all the many hours volunteers spent making this event an incredible success,” said Mower.
