From 4 - 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 16, 2021, the first annual Cowtown Hootenanny kicks off at Old Cowtown Museum, 1865 W. Museum Blvd. This brand new fundraising event promises a hollerin' good time for guests 21 and over. Tickets are available at
Guests are invited to visit the historic buildings and enjoy hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and wines; try their luck at games; dance to live music by the Kaleb McIntire Band; and participate in a silent auction with amazing prizes. They will also offer a delicious BBQ dinner, provided by the Wichita Wagonmasters.
Funds raised at the Cowtown Hootenanny support programming at Old Cowtown Museum and the Board of Trustee's nearly 20,000-piece permanent artifact collection of textiles, furnishings, tools, furniture, machinery, farming equipment and art. Old Cowtown Museum's collections reflect aspects of life on the frontier in the late 1860s and 1870s. This collection is showcased throughout the 54 historic and recreated buildings at Cowtown located along the banks of the Arkansas River.
Cowtown's mission is to educate the public regarding the history of the West through interpretation of this time period as a living history museum. Each year, the museum serves thousands of Wichita-area school children through educational programs as well as programming for adults and families.
