Event Summary
The first annual Ridgway Old West Fest, organized by the Ridgway Western Heritage Society will celebrate Ridgway's brief transformation into Fort Smith, Arkansas, half a century ago for the filming of the blockbuster movie. 
 
2019 marks the 50th anniversary of True Grit, the movie that earned John Wayne his only Academy Award. The famous director Henry Hathaway brought a cast and crew to Ridgway and Ouray County in the summer of 1968 to film much of the movie, which was released in 1969.
