Old Sheepherders Gathering

January 18 - January 19

Every January, sheepherders and their families from across western Utah and eastern Nevada converge at the state line for a weekend of comradery. But the event is more than mere reminiscing: the Gathering is a venue for passing on history to younger generations and sharing a bit of sheep industry culture with the non-initiated. Friday’s buffet dinner is for sheep folk, but the open-mic program Friday night and all of Saturday’s events (the musical entertainment, Basque family-style dinner, and the Sheepherders’ Ball) are open to the public.
