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.”
