COWPIE, a shortened moniker for Committee of Wyoming People in the East, is typically held in Washington, DC during the opening weekend of Cheyenne Frontier Days. For those who don't know, Cheyenne, Wyoming is home to the largest rodeo in North America (the "Daddy of 'em All"). Festivities include everything from bull-riding to nightly boot-scoot'n concerts.
In 2021, after an unfortunate 2020 with no COWPIE, uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 restrictions in the DC area has required us to postpone COWPIE until the fall, with a new date of October 23, 2021.
The first COWPIE, held in 1977, began the longest living tradition of the Wyoming State Society. Wyoming folk get cowboyed-up in their best boots, hats, and big belt buckles for a night of country dancing and western revelry. Dedication to COWPIE among the Wyoming folk is legendary. All are welcome, whether you're a born-and-raised Wyomingite, or just appreciate a night in the Wild West! The event features a live country band, open bar, and a mechanical bull.
All Wyoming State Society Members who have paid their dues during the 2021 Calendar Year are able to attend COWPIE free of charge. Please email visit www.wystatesociety.org/pay-dues/ to pay your dues via credit card, or mail a check (no cash please) to the WSS P.O. Box (credit card preferred). MEMBERS MUST PAY DUES BY 11:59PM ON MONDAY, October 1st. AFTER THIS, MEMBERS WHO HAVE NOT PAID DUES FOR THE YEAR MUST PURCHASE A PUBLIC TICKET.
For non-Wyoming State Society members, a ticket includes an open bar for the full night. We also offer a Dry Ticket for $25 (includes non-alcoholic beverages all evening).
