Ron and Marie Scofield are your hosts for an evening of old-time cow camp entertainment under the stars at the Red Mule Ranch in Fiddletown, California. Enjoy a chuck wagon tri-tip dinner, cowboy music, poetry,and story telling in an 1880's setting. Red Mule Ranch has been said by many to have a sort of "magical effect" for those receptive to an era long gone to history but alive and well... here.
In addition to Ron's traditional brand of classic cowboy standards, there are talented special guest performers coming from near and far to contribute their unique style of western wit, wisdom, satire, and song. The entertainers we bring are well known professionals in some of America's most specialized and rarely seen forms of expression and entertainment.

Arrival Time is 6:00pm, giving you time enough to see the wagons, art, and architecture before dinner is served at 6:30pm. Parking is in the pasture as you enter the gate. If anyone in your party needs to be taken to the top of the hill, the driver can drop off passengers and then return to the parking area. Seating is pre-assigned, so don't worry about claiming your place at the tables.You may want to bring a flashlight and/or a pillow.
Although not required,we encourage western attire to help us set the mood. Lemonade and iced tea are the served drinks. Guests are free to bring anything they may want in addition to what's available to accompany them during their visit to the Ranch. We also serve coffee and pie during intermission. Entertainment begins at 7:30pm and after lots of music and poetry, it's "Happy Trails" around 10pm.
IMPORTANT!!! Before you send your check or make your PayPal/credit card orders, call Tom at 209-296-4519 (9am until 9pm) to get your name(s) down for reservation and any seating requests (i.e. if joining friends or groups, or there are handicaps such as compromized vision or hearing or walking etc.). This is also necessary because shows do sell out so call to check. It is assigned seating so a pre-call really is necessary. We don't allow party crashers nor folks who just "show up" unannounced because of seating and because of planning quantities of dinner items. Admission can be purchased by check using the ORDER FORM button below.
