The Casper Events Center is announcing a brand new rode event for the whole family with the inaugural event happening this summer.

The CEC is kickin’ off summer ‘307 style’ this June and you, your family and friends are all invited to be a part of the first Buckin’ Summer Nights, presented by Sinclair Casper Refinery.  Buckin’ Summer Nights will take place on June 29th and 30th and will be a celebration of all things Wyoming!

It's the perfect Wyoming kick-off to summer and provides a family-friendly weekend of entertainment to all citizens of the Casper area and surrounding communities. This two-day, outdoor community event, on the grounds of the Casper Events Center, features Wyoming-made, based, and sold products, food trucks, vendors, games and contests, kid-friendly activities, live entertainment, beer garden, music and dancing and more.

Each week, the Casper Events Center will be announcing more special events and activities related to the Buckin’ Summer Nights. Be sure to check their website and Facebook pages regularly for the latest news and #307Summer announcements.
