Chuck Wagon Gathering
October 1, 10 a.m.–3 p.m.
An event every day that begins at 10 a.m., repeating until October 2, 2021
The Chisholm Trail Museum will host two days filled with cowboy fun at its Chuck Wagon Gathering on Friday, October 1, and Saturday, October 2. Visitors can drop in and see a variety of working chuck wagons from across the region as they prepare some delicious dishes. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 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.
After taking a year off due to COVID-19, this year’s Chuck Wagon Gathering is back bigger and better than ever, and will be the largest free chuck wagon gathering in the state. 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.”
