National Day of the Cowboy Celebration
1700 NE 63rd St
Round up your posse and head to the National Day of the Cowboy celebration. Held at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, this year, the family-friendly celebration will include the main highlight, a larger-than-life performance of "Pecos Bill and the Ghost Stampede" put on by the Oklahoma Children's Theatre. Watch the stage as young Missy Cougar-Wildcat meets the roughest, rowdiest cowboy of all. This production features plenty of action, laughs and the world's largest prairie dog.
National Day of the Cowboy was created in 2005 by the U.S. Senate to recognize and preserve the heritage of the cowboy, cowgirl and vaquero. In 2013, the event received permanent status as the fourth Saturday of each July.
