The National Day of the Cowboy is celebrated annually on the fourth Saturday in July, according to the NDOC organization. As of 2019, Wyoming is one of fourteen states that has passed the NDOC bill permanently into law. Wyoming also happens to be where the NDOC organization was founded in 2005.
The Dubois Western Activities Association has been hard at work planning all their 2020 NDOC events which have annually happened in Dubois for around 10 years, shared DWAA committee member Randy Lahr. “Usually, we make it a weekend event with the Friday Night Rodeo, parade on Saturday, Cowboy Church on Sunday, and more.”
Due to restrictions on events and gatherings, this year’s will likely look a little different than before. However, you can catch the parade through Dubois on Saturday, July 25th, starting at 1:00 pm followed by several events like cowhides races. On Sunday, you can get some tasty chuckwagon biscuits.
Stay tuned for updates over the next few weeks on all the happenings for the Dubois NDOC celebration.
