Events & Festivals to Plan Your Meeting Around

When it comes to planning a meeting in Casper, Wyoming, one of the easiest ways to add a hearty helping of Wyoming flavor is to schedule it during one of our mountain town’s annual events or festivals. From rodeo to music and the arts, Casper has a full calendar of events that will seamlessly complement your meeting or convention.

Here are signature events and festivals that can add the perfect amount of Wyoming flavor to your meeting:  


Held each year in early to mid-June, the College National Finals Rodeo brings the top collegiate rodeo athletes to Casper. This event ends the college rodeo season, while it kicks off the summer rodeo season in Wyoming and much of the West. Held at the Ford Wyoming Center, CNFR provides ample opportunities to introduce your meeting attendees to the official sport of rodeo, with behind-the-scenes tours, tickets to nightly performances and even special events and receptions at the facility.

NIC Fest

Taking place in early June, NIC Fest is held at the Nicolaysen Art Museum and features art, music, food and entertainment.

Central Wyoming Fair & Rodeo

Taking place across nine days, the Central Wyoming Fair & Rodeo is held every July. And with five nights of PRCA rodeo performances – as well as a parade and carnival – that have athletes competing in bull riding, saddle bronc riding and team roping, your attendees are sure to be honorary cowboys and cowgirls before they leave Wyoming.

5150’ Festival

A celebration of all things Casper, the 5150’ Festival is held each August at David Street Station. Festivities include live music, hands-on experiences and Casper-based vendors. It’s also the perfect venue for rubbing elbows with Casper locals.
