First western entertainment experience of its kind to open in Arizona
Frontier Town expands its footprint by adding town, western entertainment, music, saloon and more to new one-of-a-kind western venue
Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, Frontier Town, one of Arizona’s only remaining western town destinations, has undergone a massive property expansion to become the first western entertainment destination to be opened in Arizona in more than a decade. Arizona’s past crowd-pleasing western and entertainment venues have virtually disappeared.
According to Marc Peagler, general manager of Frontier Town, the Wild West will come alive with the creation of a one-of-a-kind western town and the scheduling of action-packed western entertainment provided by Six Gun Entertainment, LLC. Award-winning Six Gun Entertainment performs stunt and acting shows that thrill western aficionados, residents, tourists and corporate businesses.
“Frontier Town, which turns 50 years old in 2019, is preparing for the next century by bringing the excitement of the missing Wild West experience to residents, business groups and tourists alike,” says Peagler. “Over the years, Arizona has lost so many wonderful western locations due to growth, construction and a lack of focus on our roots as Americans – the real Wild West.”
Chaz Lee, director of affairs and stunt coordinator for Six Gun Entertainment, says the authentic town, Greasewood, which also is a stunt theater, will be home to numerous Wild West acting and stunt performances in the days and months ahead.
The new entertainment core fully opens to the public on Saturday, October 13, 2018, with a surprise shootout show at noon. The expansion also includes a major venue for western weddings, known as AZ Rustic Weddings, a new saloon slated to open in early spring, a restaurant establishment named Greasewood, a new stage for western and headliner musical acts, and other novel accouterments to give guests a full flavor of the West from beginning to end.
“Frontier Town will become a top destination for people seeking Wild West entertainment,” says Peagler.
The initial dates are in 2018 are
October 13 - 12 PM, Nov.10 & 24 - 12 PM, Dec. 8 - 12 PM. In 2019 they are Jan. 5 - 12 PM, Feb. 2 & 16 - 12 PM, March 2 & 16 - 12 PM
Peager says that in addition to the exciting entertainment complex, more enhancements are planned for 2019.
Frontier Town, which is owned by Frontier Enterprises, is located at 6245 E. Cave Creek Road in Cave Creek, Ariz.; www.frontiertownaz.com, is one of the oldest, most established western towns and shopping retail locations in Arizona.
