Support the Cowboy Festival

Be a Sponsor

Help support one of the area’s great traditions by becoming a sponsor of the Cowboy Festival (formerly known as the Roundup & Open House). Your sponsorship will be acknowledged in the Empire Ranch Foundation program, in our newsletter and on our web page.

Donate Auction/Raffle Items

Auctions and Raffles are a significant part of the fun and help support this event. Do you have an item you’d like to donate to our auction/raffle? We’re looking for items that are western, for cowboys or cowgirls (or can be used by same), but all items from dinner to services are welcome – large and small! Don’t limit yourself to the obvious, please think outside the corral!

Here’s some ideas: authentic western apparel; artwork; tack and supplies; collectibles; gift certificates for hotel stays or golf play; restaurant gift certificates; instruments; weekend getaways; time spent with well-known artist; baskets filled with goodies; handcrafted items; books; children’s toys; vacation home for a week; professional services, tickets to an entertainment or sporting event; jewelry, edibles – the list goes on and on.

Be a Festival Volunteer

More than 100 volunteers are needed during the Cowboy Festival, for a minimum four-hour shift.  We’ll post a form to volunteer for the 2020 Festival by summer 2020.

Proceeds from the Cowboy Festival benefit Empire Ranch preservation and educational programs.
