The National Day of the Cowboy Weekend (July 24-26)

The National Day of the Cowboy Weekend (July 24-26)

 

Discover and relive the heritage of the “Old West” while experiencing one of Wyoming’s most iconic and isolated small towns. Be a part of the celebration of “The National Day of the Cowboy” weekend (July 24-26) at friendly and serene Dubois Wyoming.  This year the celebration is “one of a kind”.  Dubois is famous for it’s natural beauty and friendly folks and you will soon find out why 

The weekend starts with the Dubois Rodeo at the Rodeo Grounds, Friday at 7:30 pm. This is a real “Ranch Rodeo” and the action never stops.   On Saturday the National Day of the Cowboy Parade starts at 1 pm.  This is the premier event of the weekend. After the parade, head to the Ramshorn Liquor, Beer, Wine and Whiskey tasting, 3-5 pm downtown Dubois. Experience the “best of the best” alcoholic beverages with appetizers and live music.  The fun just keeps getting better as you head west just out of town to Chimney Rock Arena for something you won’t see anywhere else; The Cowhide Races, 5 pm. This is more excitement than you can believe. It is best described as “plumb crazy”.  Later that evening Chimney Rock Arena is hosting a Barn Dance featuring Jaylan Crossland, 7 pm. (refreshments are available).  Normally that would be enough but Sunday brings a special event presented by Mountain Grace Church. Biscuits/Gravy & Coffee will be served at 8 am and The Cowboy Church at 9 am, Sunday at the Dubois Rodeo Grounds.  If you have never seen a Cowboy Church, don’t miss this. It is held outdoors at the Rodeo Grounds surrounded by natural beauty and with the biscuits and gravy on board, the drive home will be a relaxing one.
