The Lone Ranger Festival in Oxford

Celebrate the pride of Oxford at The Lone Ranger Festival on Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018, with a parade, art, live entertainment, good food and great friends.

The mythos of the masked vigilante lives on in his hometown of Oxford. Bring the next generation of “rangers” downtown to The Lone Ranger Festival on Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018 to celebrate the legacy.

The festival officially kicks off at 10 a.m. but the real fun starts at 11 a.m. with a parade through the downtown area. Line the streets early to catch a glimpse of The Lone Ranger and his Native American partner, Tonto.

After, wander the downtown area to catch additional special guests — plus other family-friendly programming like fire acts, aerial performances and more.

There’s even a Kids Corral for junior rangers! Bring your kiddo there for mechanical bull rides, bounce houses, puppet performances, magic shows live animals and more.

There’s even actual Lone Ranger items on display at the museum.

And if that’s not enough, there will be live music and other live historical entertainment, too.

This true community event really does have something for everyone and runs for one day only, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4. Admission is free, and all are welcome!
