Description

The Union Pacific Railroad arrived in North Platte in 1868 and since then, the city has celebrated its railroad heritage with this yearly festival. The festival hosts an array of musical acts, including jazz, bluegrass, country and the blues for your entertainment. Tour the old railroad yard of Cody Park where you can view and explore large steam engines, electric locomotives, and baggage cars and learn a thing or two about the gone by days of rail travel. Take a tour of Bailey Yards and see what's needed to run the modern day Union Pacific. If you want to experience the railroad’s heyday, this is a fantastic opportunity for you!
