In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

The Annual Doc Holli-days is back this August despite new safety restrictions

The annual event features crowd restricted events with Buck Taylor, Peter Sherayko, and Billy Zane

Tombstone’s celebration of one of its’ most colorful characters, Doc Holliday, is still happening this year, but it’ll look a little bit different with this year’s safety protocals. The Annual Doc Holli-Days kicks off Friday August 7th and runs through Sunday, August 9th.

While there won’t be a parade this year, there will be plenty of  celebrity meet-n-greets, food,  and events. The Doc Holliday, Big Nose Kate Look-Alike Contests as well as the Beard and Mustache competition will call for contestants to check in at certain times to be judged individually. Restaurants are open for take out, and/or reduced seating. Almost all stores are open and gunfights will be operational with  crowd restrictions.

This Years Guests are:
