The Frontier Festival is Cedar Point’s Annual Wild West Festival

Park: Closed | Waterpark: Closed | View Hours
Frontier Festival
Weekends May 14-16 and May 21-23, Daily May 28 – June 13

Enjoy this all-new festival, full of Old West flavor. Our annual sunflower-inspired gathering celebrates hope, health and this year’s harvest. Brimming with hops and hootenanny, Frontier Festival kicks off the season and fills the streets with rousin’ live bands, nightly hoedowns, pie eating contests, a hubbub of activities, games, crafters and more.  

For adults, this hootenanny would not be complete without a full lineup of libations. Sample your way around town, sip on more than 65 craft brews, spiked seltzers and signature cocktails including this year’s special concoction! Bring your appetite, too, because the fixins this year come with a cherry on top! Feast on more than 20 cherry-inspired provisions ranging from mild to wild, saucy and savory with some mighty fine sweet treats, cobblers and more!

Frontier Festival! In town for a limited time, select days, May 14 through June 13. Tickets on sale soon!

Festival Merchandise, Artisan Square & Crafting

If tasty vittles, refreshing belly washers and the best entertainment this side of the Mississsippi wasn’t enough, Frontier Festival has even more to see and do!  From sunflower-inspired games to exclusive merchandise to local artisans and crafters and so much more!

Our Cause for Celebration – Prayers From Maria

The townfolk are blessed with a good harvest, but we’re also celebrating for a cause during the Frontier Festival to support Prayers From Maria, a local organization working to raise awareness and research funds to bring hope and one day a cure to children with cancer.  Visit the Prayers From Maria booth by Artisan Square near Town Hall during Frontier Festival to find out how you can plant the seed and grow the movement and join with Cedar Point to raise money to support this worthwhile cause.  Know that even a small donation can make a big difference.
