Butch Cassidy Days

Butch Cassidy Days is a two-day event that takes place on June 25-26, 2011. During these days the prison and surrounding grounds come alive with living history interpreters, craft and food vendors. For the kids, there is the stick horse rodeo, money grab and, if by chance a few prisoners break free from the prison there is always a need for young cowgirls and cowboys to help with their capture. It is fun for the whole family! Unfortunately, due to the recent out break of equine herpes there will be no horses at this years event.

Admission: Adults-$5.00, Teens 12-17 $2.50, Kids 11 & under are Free
