From the President2018-06-25T15:03:06+00:00

Welcome to the 49th annual Bishop Mule Days celebration which promotes the legacy, heritage and talent of the mule in the largest first-class mule show in the world.

As the 2018 Mule Days President I would like thank the Mule Days Board of Directors for their trust and confidence in my appointment. And secondly, I would like to thank the Mule Days staff and all the many volunteers for their efforts and hard work during the 2017 event. We could not have done it without you!

2017 was a very tough year for Mule Days and Inyo County losing so many leaders and mentors. It’s been a generational change; and now it is up to us to continue the traditions, heritage and community service that these great men and women have worked so hard to build over the years. We cannot let them down!

I look forward to working hard to make sure Mule Days is here for its 50th anniversary, but also to safeguard the opportunity for Bo Tanner to be Board President for Mule Days 100th anniversary.

I will work diligently ensuring Mule Days will also benefit the entire county and all its many endeavors all year round.

In closing I have come to the realization, I’m the new old guy!

Mule Days will continue because we have been left a great template for success by incredible mentors.

Mule Days is always looking for volunteers. If you are interested in expanding your Mule Days experience by joining our volunteer ranks, we would love to have you! Just go to and click on the “Participate” link or call the office at (760) 872-4263.

Mule Days, pulling America together.
