Dust off your cowboy boots and head to the Phippen Museum
Call your friends and neighbors, grab the kids and your dancing boots, and come on out for all the fun and entertainment at our 16th Fall Gathering Barbecue on Saturday, September 17th, 2022, at 5:30PM. Featuring a delicious ranch-style dinner with all the fixins by Cooper’s BBQ Co. and live western entertainment by the High Desert Ride Band, this commemorative event pays tribute to the museum’s origins.
Our Fall Gathering Barbecue not only commemorates the Grand Opening in 1984, but it also ties our rich ranching and rodeo heritage to great fine art of the American West. Many local ranching families gathered at the Opening in honor of George Phippen’s inspirational art and character and burned their brands in the Museum’s porch beams as a sign of their enthusiastic support for the Phippen Museum. Today those beams have a special place of honor in our Heritage Gallery and provide a permanent visual reminder of our ranching community’s heartfelt support.
Another special aspect of our Fall Gathering is the induction ceremony for the newest members of the Arizona Rancher & Cowboy Hall of Fame. This year’s inspirational inductees are local brothers Art, Jim & Joe Savoini, former owners/operators of the Coyote Ranch, Savoini Cattle Company, Prescott Animal Hospital, and Savoini’s Tack & Feed. They are the sons of Costantino Savoini who immigrated to the United States from Italy when he was 16 and eventually established with his family a local dairy farm, the Hassayampa Market, and the ’Big House’ at the entrance to Prescott on White Spar Road.
So make plans now to join us for this very special Phippen tradition.
Admission is $35 for Museum Members and $45 for Guests; children 8 and under are admitted free. But this very popular annual event is a continual sell-out and reservations are required, so call now to secure your seat at (928)778-1385.
