2017 Event Schedule - Ellsworth

Ellsworth . . . the name is enough to conjure up images of epic cattle drives, saloon-filled streets, and cowboys "hoorahing" the town on mustangs snortin' fire!

To the cowboys, Ellsworth was a Mecca. Money, women and drink flowed with abandon, while in the shadows, Texas cattle were making their way to the dinner plates of the North.

One Texan recalled, "We went from the mouth of the Nueces River to Ellsworth, Kansas, without going through a gate" . . . Today surrounding grasslands offer up the kind of vistas that will convince anyone that this truly is the Old West.

Slow down and enjoy life in Ellsworth. Ranching and farming are still the mainstay of the community. No flash or glitter here, just good folks and good times. Enjoy 19th century shopping everyday. It's the genuine article at the "end of the trail" in Ellsworth.
