Beef Empire Days is the premier event of the Finney County summer.

Stretching across several days from late May to early June, Beef Empire Days boasts a whole plethora of fun events, from rodeos to cattle shows, to art installations, to tennis tournaments.

Planned events will take place all across Garden City and the Finney County Fairgrounds.

This year marks the 52nd annual Beef Empire Days. Since the beginning, it’s been about one thing: beef. This year’s theme is ‘Beef: a Community Tradition.’

Join us in the fun this 2020 season as we fiesta our way through the best parts of the beef industry. There will be Chuckwagons, Parades, A Carnival and BBQ. You don’t want to miss out on this epic event!
