John Wayne Birthday Celebration

The John Wayne Birthplace is thrilled to announce that Irish-American screen legend Maureen O’Hara and her family will be joining us in Winterset, Iowa on May 24 & 25 for our annual John Wayne Birthday Celebration. O’Hara, who starred with Wayne in “Rio Grande”, “The Quiet Man”, “The Wings of Eagles”, “McLintock!” and “Big Jake”, considered Duke her best friend and, in this public farewell to her legions of fans, she’ll discuss their life-long friendship.

The two-day event will feature all aspects of Wayne’s film career including the U.S. Cavalry, cowboys, World War II and, of course, Ireland. In tribute to Miss O’Hara this year’s dinner gala will reprise many of the highlights of last year’s Quiet Man celebration; music from that film classic performed by Irish songstress Catherine O’Connell, Chicago’s Shannon Rovers Pipes and Drums and world champion Irish dancers, the Fabulous McKay Sisters and Artist Kim Lockman.
