Celebrating its 71st year, Winthrop’s 49er Days is a celebration of our rich western and horse history. The event kicks off with the annual Ride the Rendezvous, a week-long horsepacking excursion through the Methow Valley high country which rides May 2-6. (Contact woga.org to join in this event) As the horse-train enters Winthrop on the final day, the community comes out to celebrate their arrival back home.
On Saturday, Winthrop celebrates it’s 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.
On Sunday, the cowboys help you celebrate Mother’s Day with more events and activities. All the events are open to the public. Don’t miss this historical celebration!
