Whether you are a knowledgeable local or you are planning your Thanksgiving vacation in Sheridan, the holiday season is a great time to be in our little mountain town. Spirits are high and there is plenty for visitors to experience. Here is everything you need to know to make the most of Thanksgiving weekend in our festive western town.


Thanksgiving Day is all about traditions. For some of us, that means a lazy morning of sweets and spiked hot cocoa before the big bird bash. For others, it means lacing up and hitting the pavement. The Turkey Trot and Fun Run, now in its 40th year, includes a 2.8 mile run/walk option and the 1-mile “Chase the Turkey” Kids Race. Prizes will be awarded to the top male and top female finishers as well as the top youth male and youth female finishers. Canned food donations benefit The Food Group.

Thanksgiving Weekend in Sheridan 2018If a hot mug of hot apple cider helps you warm up to the holiday shopping season (and then some). Raise a glass at the 23rd Annual Christmas Stroll, an outdoor holiday celebration on Sheridan’s Historic Main Street that showcases downtown businesses with an added pinch of healthy competition (and maybe a little luck…). Pick up your numbered Stroll Button and hunt for that special number at participating businesses to win prizes.
