Nestled in the foothills of the scenic Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming, Ten Sleep is surrounded by ranches operating much as they did nearly a century ago. Part of their western tradition is rodeo and Ten Sleep is home to the world famous Ten Sleep 4th of July Parade and Rodeo. Held annually on July 4th and 5th, the Ten Sleep rodeo began in 1946.
This small town rodeo experience is big on intensity and fun. Featuring its highly entertaining Wild Horse Races and high quality stock, Ten Sleep is one of the best small town rodeos in the nation and has seen many famous cowboys pay entry fees including Chris LeDoux, Jim Sharp and Ty Murray. You won’t find a more authentic western rodeo anywhere in the country, so stop in and see true cowboys in action. It’s western fun for the whole family!
