The year of 2023 is poised to be a big one for Sheridan County, Wyoming, as we celebrate some major anniversaries! The legendary mountain hideaway known as Spear-O-Wigwam, beloved by Ernest Hemingway during the 1920s, turns 100 years old. Don King Days, an annual celebration of Western history and heritage that takes place at the Big Horn Equestrian Center (the epicenter of polo in the western U.S.), celebrates 35 years over Labor Day Weekend. The Bighorn Wild and Scenic Trail Run, an iconic stop on the trail running circuit, turns 30. Trail End State Historic Site will be 110. Not to be outdone, the Historic Sheridan Inn, where Buffalo Bill Cody auditioned his Wild West Show, turns 130 years young, and has never looked better!
Of course, there are plenty of other events and attractions to look forward to this year, like the 93rd edition of our beloved Sheridan WYO Rodeo! For info on all of our special events, plus itineraries, travel guides, and much more, visit our website.
