Although I did not go to all the Jubilee Days events, it has something for everyone. I used to go to the street dances, street concerts and have my share of adult beverages at the beer tent as well. However as the years have gone by and my kids have grown up we go to more of the family events. Sure I caught the last bed races in front of the Buckhorn Bar and cheered on drunk people, but I had my kids go on carnival rides as I wondered when the last time the safety inspector had checked them over was. I was not worried about those things when I was in college, I just had fun and they never crossed my mind.

I have told this to many people, "Laramie is a fun place in July"! You have to pack a lot into the 3 months of no snow. We have the Party in the Park, then Jubilee Days with all of its fun, and then we start thinking about Cheyenne Frontier Days and what events we can afford to take off work and get tickets for. This year there is some really hot country and western talent and the rodeo events; Frontier Days is the big time.

We have the Snowy Range Music Festival coming in September on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th that has a great line-up and this year you can purchase a single day concert pass which is a great idea. Laramie has the Downtown Farmers Market every Friday from 3-7 with some great vendors. I can't wait for the Colorado peaches and cantaloupes to ripen. So come on to downtown Laramie and check out locally grown vegetables and produces.

Each week Laramie Live will pick a vendor to feature and give you an inside look at the Farmers Market.
