Biddy Biddy Gone!

We’re having a live fundraising auction as part of our convention this week. It’s in Wyoming. But you can bid, too! Even if you’re in Boston or Chicago or Los Angeles or Kalamazoo. (Rhyme intended).

Commemorating the 100th Wyoming State Fair, this 40"x15" limited-edition poster is framed in glass with a black, metal frame. The image is set at the 1947 Wyoming State Fair Rodeo in Douglas and includes many Wyoming legends. Donated by Chuck and Mary Engebretsen and the Wyoming Pioneer Association.

The long-awaited first batch of Wyoming Whiskey sold out in a matter of minutes after it was released earlier this month. Wyoming Whiskey is made in small batches and aged at least three years. The traditional bourbon is made in a non-traditional place – Kirby, Wyo. – and is only sold in the Cowboy State. The wheat and barley is raised in the Kirby area and the water comes from the Madison Formation in the Big Horn Basin.
