Wagon Days @ Various Locations
12:00 am
Welcome to Wagon Days – a magical Labor Day weekend of connection and celebration. A connection to our history and heritage and the days before motorized travel.  A celebration of the lives and livelihoods of people before us that inspired our town on a path to where we are today. Come to Main Street and see the largest non-motorized parade in the Pacific Northwest. Wheels, wagons and western cowboys combine with marching bands and Basque dancers to make this a lively, colorful event.  As the parade ends, we roll from the past into the present with live music at the Street Party on Town Square. Throughout the weekend there will be many activities for you to enjoy – pancake breakfast, a bareback riding demonstration, an arts and crafts festival and an antique fair. Listen to cowboy poets and meandering musicians wandering our streets or shop at our boutiques and art galleries.  With many free children’s activities this is a family-friendly occasion. More than just a fun weekend, this event fosters a sense of place, connects us to the past and hopefully inspires, educates and provide perspectives for the future. The highlight: THE BIG HITCH PARADE | 1pm on Saturday, August ...

Trailing of the Sheep @ Various Locations
12:00 am
The Trailing of the Sheep Festival was started in 1996 in response to the rapid loss of farms and ranches and the rapid growth in the Wood River Valley. The Festival preserves the stories and colorful history of sheep ranchers and herders, celebrates the rich cultures of the past and present and entertains and educates children, adults and families about the production of local food and fiber that sustain local economies and generations of hard-working families. Our mission is: To gather, present and preserve the history and culture of the families and individual men and women involved in Idaho sheep ranching and to honor their contributions to the development of Idaho and the West. Trailing of the Sheep has been named in the Top Ten Fall Festivals in the World, Top 200 Best U.S. Festivals and the Top 100 Festivals in N. America. In 2013, USA Today named it One of the Top Ten Fall Festivals in America.  It is also the recipient of the Governor’s Award for Cultural Heritage. Click here for the full schedule!
