The Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce, Forward Sheridan, and the Sheridan Innovation Center are seeking proposals for an economic development study to determine ways that Sheridan can realize greater impact from its economic development groups and increase the amount of private support for local economic development efforts.
The event is the major fundraiser for the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce. Last year nearly 25 professional craft brewers offered over 75 brews for sampling. The event also features food vendors and live music. Back by popular demand to headline this year’s entertainment is John Roberts y Pan Blanco! Local favorite, The Nate Champion Band, will open this year’s entertainment.
Attendees have the opportunity to vote in the People’s Choice Tom Balding Spur Award for their favorite brewery.
Tickets are available at the Chamber Office, 24 S. Main St.; Black Tooth Brewing Company, 312 Broadway St.; Cottonwood Kitchen + Home, 234 N. Main St.; and online here.
The Sheridan Community Land Trust will host Trailfest – 2019 from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Red Grade Trail. Spend the morning on the trail doing yoga, running, biking or walking, and then head into town for the Brewfest! Discounted tickets are available for those purchasing both Trailfest and Brewfest tickets here.

Challenge against the Sheridan Jaycees. After passing a stick horse through
everyone’s legs, then spinning 10 times, participants then grabbed a hula hoop
and ran down the field on their stick horse. Waiting for them at the end of the
field was a fellow competitor with their feet planted in buckets. The runner

to catch and place over their body. The Chamber Ambassadors won by getting the
most hula hoops over the person at the end.
