The Walk of Western Stars, sponsored by the City of Santa Clarita and the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce, was originally organized in 1981 by the Downtown Newhall Merchant's Association to honor the legends of Western film, stage, television and radio who have contributed to America's heritage since 1900. The Old West comes alive again each year when Western stars are immortalized in bronze and terrazzo tile on the streets of Old Town Newhall.
The new plaque unveilings occur annually during the City of Santa Clarita Cowboy Poetry & Music Festival held in the spring.
