Take a step back in the past and experience the wild west firsthand at Golden’s very own Buffalo Bill Days! This event dates back to the 1940s as a trail ride up Lookout Mountain to Buffalo Bill's grave. The Buffalo Bill Days Committee has expanded the activities through the years and it is now the largest community festival held in Golden. This year's activities include Cody's Wild West, the "Best of the West" theme Parade, Muttin' Bustin', live music, an orphan car and a classic car show, a golf tournament, and food and merchandise vendors. All these and more come together to make a large community event in Golden in honor of Buffalo Bill himself. The festival events start on Thursday, July 25 and continue all weekend through Sunday, July 28, 2019.


A tradition for nearly 50 years, the Buffalo Bill Days parade is a point of pride for Golden and one of our greatest events. The parade runs south along Washington Avenue from 9th Street before turning down 13th Street. Be sure to get here early because, with about 80 different entries of collectible cars, creative floats, fire engines, more horses than you can count, and local performing groups, you’ll want to have a clear view of the entire thing. Best of the West Parade begins at 10:00 a.m. on Sat. July 27, 2019.


Each day features a different selection of live music. Musical Entertainment will take place in Parfet Park at 10th and Washington Avenue. Click here to view a complete list of the scheduled entertainment:
