Right from our initial prototype event in 2017 we have asked the question, how can we get people connected to the West we know and love? And therein, lies the pearl, or if you will here in the West, the arrowhead, of our mission statement. Way Out West Fest is a celebration of the diverse culture and spirit of the modern West. Our mission is to produce an annual event that connects people through participation – embracing the community and lifestyle of the modern West. At our heart, we believe in the human connection to the West – the lifestyle, the stories, the adventure, the grit and attitude. We believe these attributes not only define, but connect us as a community. As humanity. They give us sense of place in the world, a place we can call our own and be proud of.
