Annual Dinner and Auction

Each September at our Annual Dinner & Auction the Cowboy Museum honors an individual or family who has been involved in our local western history. These people have demonstrated through their daily lives the passion for ranching or rodeo and have made a contribution to our western traditions and heritage. If you would like to submit a nomination for this year, please complete the nomination form at the link below. All nominees are reviewed and voted upon by the Cowboy Museum’s Board of Directors. 

In 2019 the Museum honored the Bachigalupi Family for their contributions to the Oakdale Area and Rodeo in the Central Valley Region.  Also honored in a special posthumous ceremony was Louie 'Dutch' Zabala, lifelong cowboy, poet, and jack of all trades.

Join us in 2020 as we honor the Pack Stations of the Sierras and shine a spotlight on the awesome history & lifestyles of these mounted mountaineers!
