Celebration Days @ SMoW

Celebration Days offer opportunities for individuals and families to sponsor a day by honoring special events like a birthday, anniversary, graduation or a favorite holiday. What better way to celebrate you or someone you love than to host a day at “The Nation’s Best Western Museum” (2019 True West Magazine Editors’ Choice)? Plus, you’ll be supporting your favorite museum in the process.

As a sponsor host of a Celebration Day, a beautiful hand-chalked sign will be created and placed at our museum entrance that shares the news on your special Celebration Day at the museum, and you will receive a special personalized gift from SMoW! Our Board of Trustee Members — Howie Alper and Stephanie Johnston — were among the first to sponsor separate Celebration Days @ SMoW. Howie celebrated his 90th birthday with us and Stephanie & family honored husband & dad, Dick, on Father’s Day. More recently, Independence Day was celebrated on July 3rd with Kathleen & Harold Piazza and the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Lunar landing was celebrated on July 20th with docent Kathy Duley.

What a unique gift to name a Celebration Day & SMoW in honor of a special someone in your life. In addition to personal celebrations, here are a few creative ideas to consider:

National Bison Day – Nov. 2
Native American Heritage Day – Nov. 29
Museum Store Sunday – Dec. 1
Christmas Eve – Dec. 24
Maynard Dixon’s Birthday – Jan. 24
Valentine’s Day/Arizona’s Birthday – Feb. 14
International Women’s Day – March 8
National Day of the Cowboy – July 25
Annie Oakley’s Birthday – Aug. 30
