PHOENIX — The city of Maricopa will celebrate its 20th anniversary in October with a diverse lineup of acts at the inaugural Wild West Music Fest.

Uncle Kracker, Nelly, Filmore, Flo Rida, Young MC and Deana Carter will perform during the Oct. 13-15 event at Copper Sky Regional Park.

“We’re thrilled to announce an array of exceptional talent as part of the diverse lineup for the Wild West Music Fest,” Maricopa Mayor Nancy Smith said in a press release.

“This festival embodies our community spirit and marks a significant milestone in our city’s history; we can’t wait for the exciting celebration ahead.”

The event is put on by the city and Steve LeVine Entertainment & Public Relations to give fans of all ages national and local musical performances, food trucks and carnival rides, along with interactive attractions to pay tribute to the early Stagecoach days of the city.

The festival will run from 4 p.m.-11 p.m. Friday (Oct. 13), noon-11 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 14) and noon-10 p.m. Sunday (Oct. 15).

Single-day and full festival tickets are available online, with family pack and VIP options offered. Unlimited ride wristbands, which don’t cover admission, can also be purchased.

Sunday is Community Day, with reduced admission fees.

Copper Sky Regional Park is located at State Route 347 (Maricopa Road) and Bowlin Road, about 20 miles south of metro Phoenix.
