2015 San Dimas Western Days and Music Festival

On October 3 and 4, the 48th rendition of this traditional event will take place in San Dimas’ downtown near City Hall, at the corner of Bonita and Walnut. The Western Days festival is coordinated by the San Dimas Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the city.

Western Days Festival consists of various activities for the entire family including games and rides for the kids, live entertainment and over one hundred craft, businesses, non-profits and food vendors participating. The festivities begin on Saturday, October 3, with a community parade featuring dignitaries, bands, historic and custom cars, floats, public safety, businesses, non-profits, friends of the dog park and more. The parade will kick off at Gladstone and San Dimas Avenue, and will go south to Bonita Avenue, then west to Cataract Avenue. Along with all the other entertainment, there will country bands and community performances on both Saturday and Sunday.

The Western Days Festival also offers several activities such as the Citrus Label Drawing Contest, which require early registration and judging before the weekend begins.
