Welcome to the Tombstone Vigilantes, Inc website. Inside you will find what we are all about, what we do, and when. We are a non-profit 501c3 organization. We were founded in 1946 and incorporated in 1954. We are the longest continuous re-enactment group in the south-west.

We perform on Historic Allen St in Tombstone, Arizona, every 2nd and 4th Sundays through out the year raising money for the Tombstone Small Animal Shelter, the Tombstone Food Bank, the Tombstone Senior Center, the Senior Meals on Wheels and the Renaissance Program at the Tombstone High School.

We have moved Vigilante Days, from the second Friday – Sunday in August to President’s weekend in February. We now host “Showdown in Tombstone“, Labor Day weekend.

We assist the Tombstone Lions during Wyatt Earp Days, held during the Memorial Day weekend and Helldorado, Inc, during Helldorado Days, held the 3rd Friday – Sunday in October.

We also partake in various parades around the region, such as the Douglas Festival of Lights Parade, The Patagonia 4th of July Parade, the Tombstone Christmas Parade, the Rex Allen Days Parade, and others.

We assist the gracious soldiers on the Army installation: Fort Huachuca, AZ, every Christmas season during their Parade of Homes.
