Bring your cowboys and cowgirls for a fun musical journey into the Wild West. Enjoy kid-friendly music celebrating the American frontier, including Copland’s “Hoe Down” from “Rodeo,” John Williams’ Overture to “The Cowboys,” musical excerpts from “Toy Story,” and more. Western wear welcomed and encouraged. J

Put on your 10-gallon hat and try life on the wild frontier at the pre-concert festival in Rhythm Hall. On the way in, say hi to your trusty steed, Ruth Ann “The World’s Cutest Donkey” at the entrance (from RVA Goats & Honey). Wrangle a cactus in game of horseshoes (from Atlantic Union Bank) and sit around the campfire in a real campsite (from Virginia State Parks). Try out some fiddle music in our instrument petting zoo (from Music & Arts) and touch some creepy crawly creatures in our animal petting zoo (from Maymont Park). Before you leave, make your mark by creating your own Sheriff’s badge (from Children’s Museum of Richmond) and get your face painted. Check out the exciting offerings from the Children’s Hospital of Richmond (Festival Sponsor), Richmond Family Magazine, and SOAR365. Did you know that the Transcontinental Railroad was completed exactly 150 years ago? Check out the railroad model provided by the Richmond Railroad Museum. The festival is only from 10-11 am, some come early so you have time to enjoy all of the wild activities!
