Dodge City Days History

Dodge City Days celebrates 53 years in 2013!

Prior to that date there were 2 Community celebrations:
The Boot Hill Fiesta (May)
Dodge City Roundup - Mid Summer

It was in 1960 that community leaders decided to combine the two and call it Dodge City Days.   Looking back through old files, we find the celebration was a three day event. Rodeo tickets cost $.75 to $1.50.

It has now evolved into a 10 day celebration that is well known nationwide.

The Dodge City Chamber is the overall sponsor & coordinator of Dodge City Days. Its original intent was to celebrate Dodge City's great Western heritage, and it still accomplishes that today!

The Committees for Dodge City Days are broken down into two sub-committees:

Dodge City Days Management Committee - makes decisions on events & handles financial responsibilities.

Dodge City Days Committee - every business or organization that sponsors an event sits on this committee.

The Committees work year round to continue striving to make it bigger each year.

The theme this year is  ďA New Twist on the Old West...Stache Bash!"

Approximately 100,000 individuals attend at least one Dodge City Days event.  The celebration generates approximately three million dollars, which has an economic impact of approximately nine million dollars on Dodge City.
