Visiting Wyoming | Spring 2015
As spring warms the air and the snow atop the Rockies, Tetons, and Bighorns begins to melt, the beauty of Wyoming is undeniable. Now is the perfect time to visit the Cowboy State – crowds are scarce and communities from Thermopolis and Pinedale to Lusk and Gillette yield quick access to countless activities and adventures amid one-of-a-kind scenery.
Found along Wyoming’s northern border, just east of the Bighorn National Forest, the city of Sheridan warms up with the 2015 Wild West Wine Fest on March 6th. Held at the Elks Lodge in downtown Sheridan, the event will feature samples of over 100 handcrafted selections, beer and spirits, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction – all benefitting the Downtown Sheridan Association and local businesses.
Casper visitors looking to take a piece of Wyoming home with them won’t want to miss the 2015 Home and Garden Show at the Casper Events Center March 20th through the 22nd. This year, there will be over 230 booths setup, each showcasing unique home décor, providing gardening seminars, and selling gardening and remodeling supplies.
The town of Lander attracts day-trippers from as far as Pinedale, Thermopolis, and Casper looking to embrace their cowboy roots at the 48th Wyoming State Winter Fair, March 7th through 14th. Scheduled events feature Ultimate Miniature Bull Riding and the Horse Show & Dummy Roping exhibition at the Lander Old Timer’s Arena – not to mention a three-day trade show hosted at Lander Valley High School. Event times vary by day, so be sure to check the schedule.
Wyoming’s capital and most populous city, Cheyenne, will offer up some of the its best homegrown goodies during the Cheyenne Winter Farmer’s Market, set for March 7th, April 4th, and May 3rd. The market is great way for visitors to taste some of the freshest, locally grown products in the state – including everything from produce and vegetables to baked goods, meats, and homemade salsas. The market opens each morning at 10 a.m.
In the northwest region, where Wyoming’s most picturesque mountain ranges reach for the sky, the city of Cody serves as an excellent western getaway. The Buffalo Bill Center of the West is an ideal place to start, featuring interactive exhibits and special events daily. Then, May 8th through the 10th, Cody comes to life during Wild West Days – celebrating the city’s frontier history with three days of family-friendly activities.
Of course, any visit to Wyoming should entail a stop at Yellowstone National Park. Due to the park’s high elevation, Yellowstone can still be quite chilly even in the month of May, so be sure to pack accordingly. However, avoiding large crowds is a breeze and much of the park’s iconic wildlife and scenery is awakening from a long winter, making for some some unforgettable sights.
