This summer the Museum at the Bighorns will host the Market at the Museum on the first Saturday of the month, June through September from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Market at the Museum will be on the museum’s porch allowing for a family friendly and open air event that locals and tourists can enjoy. The market has been in the works since the end of 2019, but could not launch last summer due to COVID-19.
“We’ve always known that our porch would be great for an event like this,” Executive Director Mikayla Larrow said. “There are so many people who make wonderful items that don’t have many places to sell them. The museum is looking to provide a venue for local artisans and crafters this summer.”
The Museum at the Bighorns has hopes to become known as a place where the community can gather for events much like the Market at the Museum.
“To best support these artists and crafters the museum will be promoting the event extensively,” Larrow said. “We’re planning to use our location to everyone’s advantage. That means we’ll have a banner on our porch, community flyers, radio ads, and more.”
“The museum is an ideal place to hold a market like this, especially with our large parking lot. Sheridan’s craftspeople and artisans have always been an important part of Sheridan’s culture. We are excited to host an event that proves that is still the case today,” Collections Manager Jessica Knight said.
Due to the space constraints on the museum’s porch, vendor spots are limited. Interested individuals can learn more about the event by calling the museum or visiting their website: museumatthebighorns.org.
