Feel the Rhythm of Wind River Country at Music Events All Summer Long

Music is particularly crisp, notably beautiful, communally celebrated when heard in the outdoors under the skyline of mountains. This richness of music written and performed in the mountains must be why Wyoming’s Wind River Country rings with it week after week, from corner to corner all summer long.

Music carried for generations among the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone tribes, music generated as a new blend of familiar styles, music celebrating classics, music that moves the moccasins, cowboy boots, or flip flops under our feet. Find any and all of this, and even more by spending a few evenings in Wind River Country.

The music is already playing. When will you join in to dance in the mountain air of Wind River Country, the air through which music moves so freely? Learn more about any of the following events at windriver.org/calendar
