Wyoming Statehood Day Celebration
Come celebrate our great state Wednesday, July 10th.
The Wyoming Territorial Prison is hosting a Wyoming Statehood Day party again this year, and for the first 400 people there's free lunch and birthday cake!
Activities include a shooting gallery, ring toss game, balloon animals, BINGO, and a stick horse rodeo. The Wyoming National Guard and City of Laramie Fire Department will also have vehicles on display.
The celebration runs from 11 am to 2 pm.
The prison was constructed in 1872 and was known as a Territorial Prison until 1890 when Wyoming became a state. It then became Wyoming State Penitentiary. The building is most famous for housing outlaws like Butch Cassidy, Clark Pelton, Elijah Canary, and Dan Parker.
