The West and especially the area in and around Phoenix, Arizona has changed a bit in recent decades.
In the midst of all these changes there are threads of cultural continuity – one such thread is the Festival of the West.
The history and spirit of the cowboy and old west come alive at this annual event that takes place at WestWorld in Scottsdale.
Highlights include live music, Western Writers of America, chuck wagon cooking competitions, historical re-enactments.
In this conversation we go to the Festival of the West and speak with Wally Stevens to learn more about the event and how it has changed and adapted along with the area around it.
