History

Flaming Gorge Days is an annual celebration which originated in 1956.  Named after the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area and the Flaming Gorge Reservoir, which is almost equally divided between Wyoming and Utah, the original intention of the event was to raise money for a Fourth of July fireworks show for the citizens of Green Concert CrowdRiver.  In 1977 Flaming Gorge Days became an official non-profit organization, which helped to shape the festival as it is today. The artisit to play that year was the one and only Chuck Berry. Since then, the Flaming Gorge Days stage has seen acts like Papa Roach, Royal Bliss, Ted Nugent, Gary Allan, Brett Michaels, Jake Owen, Tesla, Buckcherry, LA Guns, Slaughter, Bucky Covington, Luke Bryan, Trapt, Chris Young, Quiet Riot, Jackyl, Night Ranger, Josh Gracin, Chris Cagle, Halestorm, Jack Ingram, Little Texas, Diamond Rio and many more!

We are very proud that this non-profit has been supported by a committee made up of 13 local volunteers along with countless others in the community.  This celebration has become a weekend favorite for our local community as well as a destination spot for vacationers.  With a variety of entertainment options, including several sporting tournatments, a parade, children’s entertainment, festival in the park, and two nights of concerts, Flaming Gorge Days is one of Wyoming’s premeire summer events.
 
We look forward to a fantastic 2017 celebration!
