The Big West Arts Festival is a two-day outdoor celebration of the visual, culinary, and performing arts in Sheridan, Wyoming. The primary focus of the event is the juried art exhibition of gallery quality fine art and fine crafts.
One of Wyoming's most northern cities, Sheridan is rich in adventure and history. Its authentic Main Street and Old West appeal earned it a spot on the National Trust for Historic Preservation's list of Dozen Distinctive Destinations. Outdoor activities include rodeos, golf, biking in the nearby Bighorn National Forest and more. This cowboy town offers great schools, abundant coal and natural gas, and working and recreation ranches help keep Sheridan's agriculture heritage alive.
