Hans Kleiber Studio Museum

Famous printmaker and poet Hans Kleiber was drawn to the West like many artists in the early 1900s. However, unlike many famous artists and writers who came, created and left — like Ernest Hemingway — he made the West his permanent home. Kleiber was born in Germany and moved to America at age 13, landing [...]

Jentel Artist Residency Program

The Jentel Artist Residency Program offers artists and writers a chance to get away from it all and focus on creating. Jentel is located on a 1,000-acre working cattle ranch 20 miles southeast of Sheridan along Lower Piney Creek Road. It features numerous buildings clustered around the main ranch house, which was built in 1945. [...]

Sagebrush Community Art Center

Van Gogh, Poe and Greco get it: being an artist can be lonely, depressing and hard on the pocket book. Vincent Van Gogh, Edgar Allan Poe and El Greco are famed for their creations now, but they lived awkward lives with little recognition and even scorn for being too “out there” when they were working [...]

Sheridan County Fair

Sheridan County 4-H participants, family and friends — and a host of people from around the region — always have fun at the annual Sheridan County Fair. Held at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds, the fair offers livestock and animal shows for cows, rabbits, dogs, cats and more. Animals are shown by 4-H participants ranging in [...]

Sheridan County Museum

The Sheridan County Museum gives visitors the chance to explore the history of the American West through the eyes of the men and women who settled Sheridan County. It features a variety of permanent and featured exhibits that include topics ranging from the mines that contributed to the rise and fall of several small towns [...]

Sheridan Farmers Market

While northern Wyoming may not automatically be associated with fresh produce, a variety of efforts to support local farmers, agricultural producers and other crafters of homemade goods are alive and well in Sheridan and surrounding communities. For instance, one of the local school districts ditched the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s school lunch program in favor [...]

Sheridan WYO Rodeo

From bucking broncs to the antics of rodeo clowns to cowgirls racing the clock in barrel racing, the Sheridan WYO Rodeo is sure to provide entertainment and excitement for the entire family. Sheridan’s premiere event, held each July at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds, is a staple of summer in this Wyoming town. The rodeo is [...]

Suds ‘n Spurs Brewfest

Sheridan’s first ever Chamber of Commerce Brewfest was held in 2012 and was met with resounding support. It provided a showcase for 16 brewers from Wyoming and surrounding states — as well as three regional beer distributors — to showcase their finest creations. This year’s event is set for Aug. 29. While the country’s largest [...]

Taste of Sheridan

The Taste of Sheridan is a relative newcomer on the Sheridan stage of summer events, but it has taken August by storm. In 2011, more than 1,000 people attended the tasting held at Thorne-Rider Park, smacking their lips on a variety of local and cold beverages from area restaurants and catering businesses. In 2014, nearly [...]

The Brinton Museum

The Brinton Museum offers “exquisite art in an ideal setting” that is set to become even more ideal come June. On June 15, the Forrest E. Mars Jr. Building will open, and it is likely to make The Brinton a destination museum much like the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Director and [...]
