Sun Valley in the Winter

Sun Valley isn't just a ski town, it's a place with a unique culture born from its rich history and the contributions of the people who have called it home. The result is a destination that isn't driven by the trends of the day, but instead is defined by its innovators, creators, entrepreneurs and adventurers. We're here because we love it here — come see why.

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 ...
