Saddle Up Your Horses for our Giddyup Gala & Auction!

Shine up your best pair of boots for our Giddy Up Gala: A Night of Boots, Bourbon & Beer...we're taking you back to the late 1800's/early 1900's in Golden's Wild West to meet colorful characters like the exceptional horseman and Hollywood silent film actor, Pete Morrison, and Golden's "tough-as-nails," Sheriff CP Hoyt

A Fantastic Night of Entertainment...

This year’s “Giddy Up Gala: A Night of Boots, Bourbon and Beer” will celebrate Golden’s vintage Western history including many of Golden’s most colorful characters from the late 1800’s. The event will be emcee’d by Paul Andrews, the President & CEO of the National Western Stock Show and a third-generation Golden ranching family descendant.

Guests are encouraged to don their best Western wear for a rip-roaring evening of fun including State 38 handcrafted bourbon and gin-based cocktails, Coors Brewing Co./AC Golden beer tastings, wine donated by Old Capitol Grill & Smokehouse, a four-course dinner and exciting live and silent auctions.

High-energy entertainment will be provided by champion trick roper, “Cowboy Craig Ingram,” Ragtime pianist Randy Johnson, Golden’s Heritage Square Music Hall pianist for more than 30 years, and, the bass-baritone powerhouse, Matt Buckstein (of American Idol fame), and his Buckstein Band, aim to fill the dance floor with their boot-scootin’ after-party sound. A big thanks to the Buffalo Rose for underwriting Buckstein Band!

Proceeds benefit the Golden Civic Foundation's Community Grant Program that supports local charitable organizations, public schools, museums and cultural centers.
