Pawnee Bill Ranch and Museum Announces Cancelation of Wild West Show
PAWNEE, Okla. — After much consideration, the Oklahoma Historical Society and the board members of the Friends of the Pawnee Bill Ranch Association have decided to cancel this year's Pawnee Bill’s Original Wild West Show and festival that was scheduled for June 12–13, 2020.
The first priority of the Oklahoma Historical Society is the health and safety of our patrons, volunteers and staff. We stand with our fellow Oklahomans in the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. While we will certainly miss the reunion of returning guests, friends and reenactors this year, we hope to see everyone in 2021 when this one-of-kind historical reenactment will return. Please continue to support the Oklahoma Historical Society and the Pawnee Bill Ranch Association during this difficult time when hard decisions such as this must be made.
The Pawnee Bill Ranch and Museum is a division of the Oklahoma Historical Society. The mission of the Oklahoma Historical Society is to collect, preserve and share the history and culture of the state of Oklahoma and its people. Founded in 1893 by members of the Territorial Press Association, the OHS maintains museums, historic sites and affiliates across the state.
