National Day of the Cowboy

Celebrate National Day of the Cowboy 2023 with us, Saturday, July 22. Our theme this year is “Three States, One Trail.” Doors open at 10 a.m. This is the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center’s 13th year to host this event.

“The Wild Boys,” will kick off celebrations for the day.

The schedule for the rest of the day includes live music by Missy Frye and Gaylon Blankenship, book readings by local authors, Marilyn Brooks and Marilyn Pineda, and entertainment by author, E Joe Brown.

Since the first celebration in 2010, this local event has grown, attracting many visitors, many from out of the area. It has become a much-anticipated event for local families.

*Children’s art project will be available, made possible with funding from the Oklahoma Arts Council.

Rope a Longhorn, ride a buckin’ bronc, create your brand! Beat the heat in our 4D Experience Theater, where you can watch the cattle stampede, cool off during a summer thunderstorm on the Oklahoma prairie, and learn about life as a cowboy or cowgirl.

Eavesdrop on Jesse Chisholm and Tex in our Campfire Theater as they tell their story about the Trail that became known as the Chisholm Trail.
