Horn In The West is our nation's longest-running Revolutionary War outdoor drama. The play brings to life the story of the hardy pioneers who, with the help of famed frontiersman Daniel Boone, and Cherokee allies, settled in the Blue Ridge wilderness as they sought freedom from British tyranny.

Loved by young and old, the Horn In The West outdoor drama has been performed each summer in the heart of Boone, North Carolina at Daniel Boone Amphitheater. This adventure has offered thrilling outdoor entertainment to generations of visitors since it premiered in 1952.

The performance runs Tuesdays - Saturdays at 8 p.m., from June 21st through August 10th. The house gates open at 7:30 p.m. 

Arrive earlier and tour the Hickory Ridge History Museum. The museum is open before the show from 5 pm until 7:30 pm for self-guided tours. The museum is also open during the day (Tuesdays - Fridays) for 45-minute guided tours. It can be visited on Saturdays from 10 - 1 pm.
