Get your tickets now for Orient Land Trust's second year Ranch Celebration event on Sept 16, 2017.

Join us at the Historic Everson Ranch for a wonderful Chuckwagon Dinner Concert/Dance, ranch tours and more. This year's entertainment will be provided by the preeminent western music pioneers, The Flying W Wranglers. The wonderful folks at Rustingram Catering are preparing the food again this year.

The Flying W Wranglers have been performing music for over 63 years, making them the second oldest Western Music group in the world. Riding with the Wranglers promises the experience of classic country, western swing and gospel music with a bit of Cowboy wit. Expect unique western harmonies, fantastic yodeling, superb instrumentation and great songs of the American West. The Flying W Wranglers are a Colorado tradition and we're proud to have them in these parts for this special occasion.

The Chuckwagon Dinner will include all the fixin's, with vegetarian and gluten free options. The dinner will feature meat and vegetables from the ranch served in true farm-to-table fashion. Help us celebrate the wonderful efforts and successes at the ranch this year as we harvest the best that the San Luis Valley has to offer.

The Everson Ranch is part of the Orient Land Trust's Land Conservation Program which protects over 2200 acres. We engage in historic ranching operations with the goal of soil and water restoration. Other ranch projects improve riparian areas and eliminate invasive weeds. The reservoir at the ranch is also protecting Rio Grande Chub and Rio Grande Sucker fish species.

Register now online. Tickets for the dinner and concert are $50 per adult, $25 for minors aged 13-17 and there is no extra charge for kids under 12. All kids and minors must be accompanied by an adult. Camping will be available at the the ranch on Saturday night for an additional $10 per campsite.

We look forward to seeing you there. Contact us for more information and to purchase tickets.
