Enterprise Newsletter • Celebrate Independence Day in the Jackalope City
4th of July festivities planned for Fort Fetterman
Fetterman Day, held each Independence Day at historic Fort Fetterman, has become an annual tradition. A pancake feed, a flag raising, historic re-enactments and good old fashion fun are just part of the offering.
Families looking for good, old-fashioned fun this Independence Day are encouraged to take in Fetterman Day at historic Fort Fetterman.

A 5k is planned for the morning of the Fourth beginning at 7 a.m. Event and registration details can be found HERE . Price is $25 for one or $40 for a couple. The kids' 1k is $5. Early registration is being encouraged and prices increase June 25.

The larger event will include a free pancake
breakfast, free ice cream, craft and food vendors, living history demonstrations, historic children's
games, and a watermelon eating contest! There is no admission fee to the Fort for this event. Some of the activities like the 5k, however, do cost a registration fee.

The Fort was established as a military post on July 19, 1867, because of conditions that existed on the Northern Plains at the close of the Civil War.
