Sheridan is Wyoming’s emerald gem, a postcard-perfect vision of Western graces and wide-open spaces. Nestled in the foothills of the iconic Bighorn Mountains, Sheridan is where cowboy culture and Western hospitality have fused to provide the experience of a lifetime.

Step into your favorite boots and saunter into King’s Saddlery, where the cowboy and his craft remain alive and well. Across the street, you’ll spy the neon lights of the legendary Mint Bar (outlaws need not apply), and the burly buffalo of Bison Union, where you can find a local pint or a cup of freshly roasted coffee, respectively.

Hungry? Good thing you’ve come to cattle country. Order a hand-cut ribeye as big as a steer’s head at the Ledoux Saloon and Steakout or the Rib & Chop House, or find quintessential Wyoming fare at Frackelton’s, Birch Restaurant or Welcome Market Hall.

Craft is king in our backyard, and we invite you to experience a taste of the West at Black Tooth Brewery, Luminous Brewhouse, Smith Alley Brewing and Koltiska Distillery. Each is known for live music, trivia or bingo nights, and for welcoming food trucks to their doorsteps.

Sheridan is known for hosting some of the most legendary festivals and events in the West. From rodeos and festivals to craft culture celebrations, Sheridan offers events for visitors to enjoy year-round.

Sheridan County’s rich cultural legacy is deeply rooted in the arts, and that will be prevalent this spring when the Brinton Museum showcases master leathercrafters from Wyoming alongside masters from Japan.

Mid-July brings a week-long celebration of Western culture that captures the hearts of the cowboy in everyone during the Sheridan WYO Rodeo, featuring one of the most unique sporting spectacles in America in the annual Championship Indian Relay Races.

Labor Day weekend brings an event that celebrates the spirit and traditions of the West: The annual Don King Days showcases classic equestrian events unique to Sheridan. Bring the whole family and experience steer roping, bronc riding, live music and championship polo matches on the grass at the Big Horn Equestrian Center.

The craft scene in Sheridan is among the most robust in the Mountain West, and it is celebrated every September at the annual Born in a Barn event. From fashion and furniture vendors to music and food, this event embraces the motto “craft is king.”
