Deadwood Alive

Where Deadwood's History Comes Alive!

The brick-paved streets of downtown Deadwood are alive with the stories of gunslingers, gamblers, prospectors, and outlaws, thanks to the performances of Deadwood Alive! These professional re-enactors have been entertaining visitors for more than 20 years with Main Street shootouts and the now-legendary Trial of Jack McCall, an evening show that’s become an integral part of the Deadwood experience. 

Come along with the Deadwood Alive Gunslingers as they track down some trouble.
