FORT CODY TRADING POST

Buffalo Bill’s Miniature Wild West Show

 

The main show in center ring features Buffalo Bill himself, cowboys, Native Americans, and his friend Annie Oakley. See the bull rider and the trick roper? You can almost hear the crowd cheering!


Buffalo Bill traveled with many families of Native Americans, who would set up camp on the show grounds. They perform their native dances for you, and even stage a covered wagon attack!


See all of this free of charge every 30 minutes at Fort Cody!

 

Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes? You will discover the kitchen, eating area, a barber shop, and what's this??... That looks like a crooked game of cards to me! (above)


Fort Cody is pleased to present this show for you....FREE of charge!

 

American Folk Art at its finest.

 

Fort Cody Trading Post is the permanent home of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show in Miniature! The show, made by Ernie and Virginia Palmquist, took 12 years to carve and contains over 20,000 hand-carved pieces....many animated! The grand parade features cowboys from all over the world, wearing costumes and carrying flags of their countries. Inside the parade route are the circus acts that accompanied Buffalo Bill on his world tour: the snake charmer, the fat lady, and the knife thrower. No peaking in that dressing tent!
