The Hulett Rodeo is a time honored tradition in its 66th year. Started by Irvin (Ike) Knapp, Richard (Dick) Proctor, and Merle Johnson in 1947, the rodeo is now produced by area volunteers. The rodeo is approved by the NRCA and WRA and begins at 1:30 p.m. each day. A highlight of the rodeo is the annual clown act and children's activities including a calf scramble.
On Saturday at 10:00 a.m. the local businesses and organizations turn out for a fantastic hometown parade. Come see the Devils Tower KOA float and catch some candy!

Each year the Devils Tower Natural History Association organizes the Old Settler's Picnic, a wonderful family event designed to honor the heritage of the locals. The Old Settlers' Picnic at Devils Tower started in 1932 and continued into the 1960's bringing many locals and tourists together to celebrate their pioneering legacy. For many years the picnic was not held, but was revived by the 2006 Devils Tower National Monument Centennial celebration. The event features a ceremony honoring local ranching families and is followed by cowboy poetry, live music and youth activities. Booths from local organizations and artists' works are on display. Complimentary cake and ice cream are provided, plan to bring a picnic lunch just like the old settlers did!
