Produce & Homemade Goods Early Saturday mornings during the growing season, downtown Dodge City comes alive with fresh produce and homemade products. It's a great way to get fresh, healthy, seasonal produce, grown locally. It's place to meet neighbors and chat while getting needed groceries and enjoying an outdoor walk in historic downtown Dodge City! The parking lot facing Wyatt Earp Boulevard between Third and First Avenue fills up with area producers offering their products for sale. Some homemade baked items and arts and crafts are also available at times.
While the Museum is open 362 days a year, throughout the summer months, historical interpreters provide you with endless entertainment. You can enjoy one of the best country-style meals in the American West. Witness exciting gunfights between the good guys and the bad guys, listen to Miss Kitty croon in the Long Branch while the Can-Can girls kick up their heels, and experience Dodge City’s history through many different historical reenactments. Interactive displays throughout the museum provide year-round entertainment and a unique learning experience.
It is recommended to make reservations for the Variety Show and Country-Style Dinner. Call 620-227-8188 to get your evening scheduled!
