Annual Festivals: Wild West Winter Carnival, 1838 Mountain Man Rendezvous, Hot Air Balloon Rally, Fremont County Fair, Winter Art Fair
The town of Riverton is located along the Big Wind River in the center of nearly a half million acre tract withdrawn from the Wind River Indian Reservation for homesteading. Founded in 1906, Riverton is now the center of a prosperous agricultural area.
The Wind River Casino is located just outside of Riverton and hosts the Northern Arapaho Experience weekly during the summer months.
Don’t Miss: Every July, Riverton hosts the 1838 Mountain Man Rendezvous and Hot Air Balloon Rally. The rendezvous is still held on the original site.
