The first Western Days festival, sponsored by the Oakdale Tourism and Visitors Bureau, was hosted Friday evening, Sept. 30 featuring a concert by The Dave Russell Band and on Saturday, Oct. 1, with an International Chili Cook Off and a variety of entertaining acts all around the Oakdale Saddle Club Rodeo Grounds.

OTVB Administrator Pam Dumas said that the OTVB wanted a cowboy themed event to go with the city’s motto of being the Cowboy Capital of the World and the Western Days celebration was selected.
