Experience the fast-paced 90-minute Cody's Wild West extravaganza during this year's Buffalo Bill Days in Golden, Colorado. Experience it with the whole family! This year's Grand Opening includes a Civil War era cannon, military flag detail, a live American eagle from HawkQuest, bagpipers and drum corps, horsemen and the great showman himself, William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody!!
For the first time performing in Cody's Wild West, Blizzard and Boo! Riding a long-horn is one thing, but riding, shooting and performing on one is another! Don't miss this.
Returning to the arena, we’re super-excited to have Hazel Miller singing our national anthem. She is not just a great singer; "She is a force of nature!" quotes the Rocky Mountain News. Her voice has been called "stunning, moving and powerful." Hazel has been a sought after performer in Colorado for the past 30 years. Don’t be late for this stirring rendition. Also returning, our Mestizo dancers, performing traditional dance in their colorful outfits along with performing, dancing horses; amazing ground and aerial sharpshooting by Little Sure Shot, Annie Oakley; traditional dances and songs by our Native Americans with a beautiful prayer performed by Iron Tail; roper-extraordinaire Craig Ingram with his wife, Audrey, performing amazing tricks with the lasso and bullwhip, as The Cowboy And The Lady! In addition, the 79th Highlanders bagpipe and drum corps straight out of The Civil War with their Celtic dancers. Careful not to blink… you might miss the fast-shootin’ sharpshooters on fast horses blast their targets lickety-split!
Providing the live music from the late 1800’s during the show, Cody’s Wild West house band, The Capitol City Brass Band.
In the spirit of the original traveling "show" that brought the Wild West to the world, Monarch Productions reflects that rugged American spirit and originality. Western performers from around our state give the show a definite Colorado "air."
Cody's Wild West will take place 12:30PM Saturday, July 29, 2017, following the conclusion of the "Best of the West" parade, in west Lions Park ball fields on 10th St, east of Illinois, a short walk from the parade viewing area.
All acts subject to change. Produced for Buffalo Bill Days by Monarch Productions
