Jan. 14 & 15: Gathering of the Gunfighters at Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park

EacYUPR_Gun_335h January, Old West reenactment groups ride into Yuma, Arizona for the Annual Gathering of the Gunfighters at Yuma Territorial Prison SHP.Once their dust settles, the Southwest Ghostriders, Arizona Ghostriders, Pistols & Petticoats and the WesTroupe acting groups begin their skits, set in the time period between 1876 to 1909, for coveted prizes. The event draws thousands from around the Southwest to experience the old west lore in this historic territorial prison setting.

The quiet streets of Yuma will once again be filled with the anguished wails of innocent citizenry crying out: “They robbed the bank!” A host of individual and group competitors from nasty outlaws, rough and ready cowboys, audacious saloon gals, to some just plain ol’ low-down dirty, rotten characters will assemble for a day of fun, competition and mayhem.
