Epic Festivals & Events

With its stunning views and charming Western atmosphere, it’s not hard to see why Rawhide is a premier destination for some of the country’s best music festivals. Can’t-miss annual events include the fully immersive two-day Goldrush Music Festival, which draws electronic music and hip-hop fans from across the country; and the legendary Decadence Arizona New Year’s Eve Festival, which has featured superstar DJs like Skrillex and Diplo.

Rawhide is also the home to exciting sporting events ranging from mud runs and terrain races to gymnastics and cheer competitions.  Charity fundraisers of all sizes call Rawhide home throughout the year.

Holiday Fun for the Whole Family

If you’re looking to add a little Wild West flavor to your next family holiday outing, check out Rawhide’s holiday events that open up the entire Western Town to the public. During the month-long Rawhide Snowy Christmas, kids can meet Santa in the Old West town decked out in a million glittering lights. The Easter Egg-Stravaganza features an Easter egg hunt, of course, but also a candy corral, a water balloon toss, and the opportunity to take a photo with Cowboy Cottontail, Rawhide’s very own Easter Bunny and local celebrity.

Rawhide’s Signature Holidays also open the Western Town for Mother’s Day and Thanksgiving - with delicious food offerings and plenty of entertainment for kids and adults of all ages.  The Arizona RoughRiders delight crowds with their cowboy stunt shows at every Signature holiday!
