  1. Fire in the Sky

What’s the 4th of July without fireworks? The City of Laramie and WyoTech put on a bangin’ show worth keeping the kids up for. Grab the picnic blankets, camping chairs, or the back of a truck and watch the fun.

  • Where: Downtown Laramie
  • Cost: Tickets are available for purchase.
  1. The Block Party

  • Where: Buckhorn Bar
  • Cost: FREE; drinks for purchase.
  1. Chili Cookoff

Sample some chili before you find your parade seat. Red, green, mild to spicy–it’s all there. 'Sample' is the keyword. Otherwise, it could make for an uh...uncomfortable parade. 

  • When: Saturday, July 8, 8 a.m.
  • Where: Downtown Laramie

One of the best parts about Jubilee Days is the parade—candy and costumes for the kids, conversation, and community for the adults.

  • Cost: FREE
  1. Brewfest

Another staple of the Jube: the beer! So many good local and regional brews to celebrate. Purchase a wristband, leave the pets and strollers at home, and enjoy refreshing beverages. 

  • When: Saturday, July 8 at 1 p.m.
  • Where: Depot Park 
  • Cost: Wristbands $40; mingling free.

  1. Country Swing Lessons

If you’re going to be dancing downtown, you might as well make sure you’re doing it right.

  • Where: Downtown
  • Cost: FREE
  1. Rodeo    

Plenty of rodeo opportunities during the Jube from Mr. T to PRCA. Sunday is the last performance round to finish a fantastic few days of bulls, blood, dust, and mud.
