Event Navigation

Pawnee Bill’s Wild West Days will be held on Saturday, June 11, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Pawnee Bill Ranch and Museum. Stagecoaches will roll amid thundering horse hooves while the lightning of gunfire explodes around Pawnee Bill, May, and their cohorts as the talented performers thrill and amaze audiences. This one-day celebration will feature exhibitions of acts from the original Pawnee Bill’s Wild West Shows.

Kevin Webb will portray Pawnee Bill for the 14th time. Webb, a long-time Wild West Show cast member and Pawnee Bill Ranch employee is also a whip artist and chariot racer. Alyce Webb will portray May Lillie for the 4th time, performing her act on horseback. The Mike Pahsetopah family will perform as the Dancing Eagles, paying tribute to American Indian culture with their stunning Native dancing. Show cowboys and cowgirls will be back again this year to demonstrate their skills with reckless feats of horsemanship and entertaining races.

The museum will be open to the public during the festival from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Food from local food trucks will be available on-site. There will be historically accurate entertainment—such as blacksmithing, chuck wagon cooking, gunfighters and sharpshooters, a magician, medicine man shows, and musicians—held continuously during the festival. Leather making, quilting, and candle making will join craft vendors for the event. Demonstrations by beekeepers, a cowboy campsite with storytelling, a boot throw and buffalo chip throw contest will also be held on the ranch grounds.

Alongside the traditional acts, Oklahoma City Thunder mascot Rumble the Bison will be on-site from 11 a.m. to noon to greet visitors!
