Chuck Wagon Gathering and Fundraising Dinner
March 19, 2022
On Saturday, March 19, Chisholm Trail Museum and Horizon Hill will host a Chuck Wagon Gathering and Fundraising Dinner.
During the day, visitors can drop in and see a variety of working chuck wagons from across the region as they prepare some delicious dishes. Visitors can enjoy music, Dutch oven cooking demonstrations, Straka longhorns, gunfights, medicine man shows, Annie Oakley demonstrations, stagecoaches and more—all for free! Live music from Kyle Dillingham and Peter Markes, Cowboy Jim Garling, and the Flying Fiddler Wayne Cantwell will be featured throughout the event.
Wagons representing Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas and South Dakota will cook both historical cowboy meals and other tasty recipes for visitors to sample.
“Museum visitors will get the chance to explore life on the trail, taste some chuck wagon favorites, and interact with living history characters from across the West,” said Chisholm Trail Museum director Jason Harris. “Our Chuck Wagon Gathering allows us to help keep a part of the West alive for our visitors. We want to provide an opportunity for families to explore the west and learn through demonstrations, music and more.”
A ticketed fundraising dinner will follow the day’s festivities. The day’s activities will be free with the cost of admission to the museum. A ticket for the evening fundraising dinner needs to be purchased in advance of the event. Follow the Chisholm Trail Museum and Horizon Hill on their website, or on Facebook for more details.
