The Roundup & Open House on Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014 will showcase the Empire Ranch in all its glory — past, present & future! We expect approximately 2500 people to come to enjoy presentations and demonstrations to engage children and adults in the history and lore of the Old West. Throughout the day attendees will re-live cowboy traditions, watch exciting arena events featuring roping and riding, western skill demonstrations, “Cowboy Conversations,” kid’s corral, Western music, Western authors arena, food, auctions, and raffles. The Roundup & Open House provides a day long Western experience at the Historic Empire Ranch.
We need your help! Volunteer for the day or consider signing up for set up or take-down. PLEASE contact Ali Boelts ERF Admin at email@example.com for information about the event or available volunteer opportunities.
