Here at Parry Lodge, we take great pride in our Kanab community’s nickname “Little Hollywood.” Join the locals and visitors from far and wide this August 20-25 to enjoy a celebration of western heritage complete with a celebration of music, films, poetry, famous film and TV legends and much more. Here are a few highlights of the 20th year celebration of the 2018 Western Legends Round-Up in Kanab, Utah.
2018 Historic Wagon Train Trek
Experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure along a four day, three night wagon train journey through 60 miles of impressive western scenery amid the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Half-day and full-day historic wagon train treks are also available, taking guests to locations such as scenic Johnson Canyon and Pipe Springs National Monument. Register early to book your spot.
Little Hollywood’s All Star Round Up
Of course, more than a dozen popular western legends from TV and film have been ‘rounded up’ to attend the event. There is a full schedule of meet and greets, signature opportunities, and even performances by a few of these famous guests. Some stars scheduled to attend the Western Legends Round-Up include Barry Corbin, Wilford Brimley, Ed Faulkner, Rudy Ramos, Don Collier, Neil Summers and many more. Bring your memorabilia or autograph books and don't miss the chance to get rare autographs.
Western Legends Round-Up BBQ Cook-Off
The Kansas City Barbeque Society will be sponsoring a Master’s Competition Cook Off this year. Festival goers should arrive hungry and ready to engage with super barbeque enthusiasts and pitmasters ready to knock your boots off with finger licking goodness. This is competitors chance to advance to the big leagues to the Jack Daniels World Championships and the American Royale cook offs, so they will surely be doling out their very best BBQ and sides to visitors this year.
