Rich Underwood, 2017 Mule Days Celebration President

MD_Rich_0048Rich-Underwood-2016-PresidentWelcome to the 48th Bishop Mule Days Celebration, arguably the finest, most fun and unique mule show in the world.

What makes us so special? Bishop, California is located in the picturesque Owens Valley, situated under the 10,000 to 14,000 foot peaks of the White Mountains and Eastern Sierra Nevada’s.

During the week leading up to Memorial Day hundreds of competitors and their mules converge on the Tri-County Fairgrounds to compete in over 200 classes which include English, western, cow working, roping, driving, chariot speed events, gymkhana, packing competitions, trail classes, dressage, reigning, fun classes, Americana, farm implements, weight pulling, and the interscholastic packing championships. Without a doubt, Bishop Mule Days highlights the talents, endurance and athleticism of the mule and donkey better and more completely than any other mule show on earth.

If that’s not enough, we have an authentic western concert Thursday night featuring the best cowboy entertainers in the business and the world’s longest running non-motorized parade on Saturday morning. There is also an abundance of sightseeing opportunities such as Death Valley National Park, Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, Alabama Hills, Western Film History Museum, Manzanar Historical Site, Laws Railroad Museum and countless lakes and streams to fish.

I invite you to come and be part of our fun western tradition and to experience the Eastern Sierra. To our valued competitors,  guests, sponsors, vendors and volunteers, we thank you for all you contribute to the success of Mule Days. We’ll see you in May!
