Whether your interests lie in art, culture, outdoor activities, history rodeo, team sports, shopping, or exploring the remarkable landscapes of the Southwest, Gallup has it all!

Come immerse yourself in Native American Culture with the Nightly Indian Dances — from Memorial Day through Labor Day — for free in the heart of downtown Gallup, or in August at the 96th Annual Gallup Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial. Get dirty and off-the-beaten-path when Red Rock Motorsports digs in for their Summer MX Series in July and their Red Rock 100 Desert Race in September. You’ll be on the edge of your seat watching real cowboys take on the roughest bulls at the Wild Thing Championship Bull Riding event in June. Feel the heat of hot air balloons, hot cars, and hot Harleys with our Route 66 Freedom Ride, Flight, and Cruise event on the last weekend of July. Hike or bike our scenic High Desert Trails or reach the summit of Pyramid Peak.
