Summer events are one of the best ways to experience the Great American West community of Carbon County, Wyoming. In June, Encampment hosts the Woodchopper’s Jamboree & Rodeo, where competitors chop and saw wood in a race for the fastest time, followed by one of our favorite sports competitions: rodeo.

July celebrations and events begin with a bang – literally! Plan to visit the Saratoga Independence Day Celebration or the Rawlins Summerfest extravaganza for fun, food and live entertainment. In mid-July, join cowboy poets at the Grand Encampment Cowboy Gathering, or step back in time at the Mountain Man Rendezvous and Living History Day, which brings cowboy, mining and mountain man history to life.

Don’t miss the Carbon County Fair & Rodeo – held every August – to experience local culture, live music, cowboys riding bulls and broncs, and a demolition derby. In mid-to-late August, Saratoga is host to the Steinley Cup Brewfest, where Wyoming’s best brewers compete for the coveted trophy, and a week or two later it’s the Saratoga Bullfest – a bull riders-only event.

No matter what time of year you visit, Carbon County is the place to Get Your West On!
