Old Fort Days Dandies Reunion

June 3, 2017
1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

The Fort Smith Museum of History will host a reunion for the Old Fort Days Dandies on Saturday, June 3, 1:00-3:00 pm. Current and former Dandies are invited as well as all who wish to meet the Dandies. Since 1977, each evening during the Old Fort Days Rodeo, crowds cheer with pride at the appearance of the Dandies, young ladies skilled in horsemanship leading the legendary Grand Entry. As ambassadors for the Old Fort Days Rodeo, the horsewomen are chosen for their riding skill, character and personality. A Quadrille performed each evening during the rodeo demonstrates the remarkable skill of the Dandies, acquired through rigorous training. Organized as a promotional group, the talented young ladies lead the Grand Entry, post the colors, perform the Quadrille, a square dance on horseback, and travel throughout the year to appear at rodeos nationwide. Join the Fort Smith Museum of History and meet the Old Fort Days Dandies! Included with museum admission: $7 adults; $5 veterans and military; $2 children; under age 6 are free.
