An annual event for more than 60 years, this is a celebration of Wickenburg's rich heritage. For three action-filled days, always the second full weekend in February, thousands of visitors and participants enjoy the multitude of activities that make this Chamber-sponsored event.

Festivities for the 63rd annual Gold Rush Days begin with a shoot-out on Frontier Street that kicks of a wild rootin'-tootin' western weekend. Spectators line the streets on Saturday as one of the largest parades in Arizona passes by. Cowboys from all over the country gather on Saturday and Sunday afternoon to participate in the rodeo. In the area around the Community Center families can enjoy a carnival, food booths, and arts and crafts.
