Come to celebrate the heritage of the Butterfield Stage, whether you ride on the authentic replica stage or come to enjoy the entertainment and history, your adventure begins at the historic 1857 Warner-Carrillo Ranch House museum and the former Butterfield Stage Stop. The adobe home tells the story of the emigrant trail, the overland stage, and the ranching history of the area.
Returning this year will be driver Sioux Munyon and her team, the Jugless Jug Band, folk duo Nathan and Jessie, the Hole in the Wall Gang, and the Victorian Roses Ladies Riding Society. In addition, we will be raffling off a hand made quilt made especially for this event by Nan Rebik, and includes a demonstration on how quilts are made and tied.
If you want to experience what it was like to ride the stage as did thousands of emigrants traveling to the “promised land,” reserve your place for a 15- to 20-minute ride along the original trail. Enjoy the only such stage ride event in the country, a truly one of a kind experience!
Rides take place on a first come first served basis only, with the last stage leaving at 3:15pm. Please arrive early enough to avoid already filled later stages.
