'49er Days Western Heritage Celebration

Celebrating its 78th year, Winthrop Washington’s ’49er Days is a western heritage celebration of our rich western and horse history. The event kicks off with the annual Ride the Rendezvous, a week-long horse packing excursion through the Methow Valley high country which ends Mother’s Day weekend. (Contact woga.org to join in this event) As the horse-train enters Winthrop on the final day, the community comes out to celebrate its arrival back home. If you can’t attend, the parade will stream live on our Facebook page. On Saturday, Winthrop celebrates its rich Western history with a grand parade including the largest representation by horses of any parade in Washington State. Saturday is full of activities for the kids, the cowboys and the cowgirls.
