In its 25th year, the Sheridan Arts Foundation's Wild West Festival will take place from June 5-10. The event consists of a week of empowering activites for 48 at-risk youth from Boys & Girls Clubs around the country. This year's Fest will include a Round Up in Elks Park with a stagecoach and a special benefit concert featuring Nahko & Medicine for the people.
The youth participating in Wild West Fest with be paired with professionals in the fields of performance, fly fishing, outdoor adventure, and music and visual arts. The goal is to give the youth a postivite learning experience and for them to return home wiht a greater sense of self-confidence, personal awareness, and a frim grasp on some new skills.
The Wild West Fest was created by the Sheridan Arts Foundation, which raises $50,000 each year to run the program. Those interested in contributing and helping should contact the Sheridan Arts Foundation, (970) 728-6363.
