National Day of the Cowboy - July 24, 25 and 26

The National Day of the Cowboy is almost a religious experience in Sedona and the town always does it up big. Music, food, cowboys, horses, a stage coach, cowboy poetry, storytelling, and more!

This year, Ramsey's will join the celebration with lots of activities, raffles, free gifts, and Western items for purchase. Take a look at the schedule. Join us for a fun weekend of Cowboy events. Stroll Uptown and Main Street and partake of the food, fun, music and entertainment.
