Donkey Creek Festival

300 Sinclair Street
Gillette, WY 82717


In August, 2006, Gillette College began an annual summer tradition hosting the first Donkey Creek Concert. Held on the College lawn near the banks of Donkey Creek, the first concert included only one band and an audience of about 50 people. By 2011 that single concert had grown into a three-day festival featuring two and a half days of music including nationally known musicians. Thousands enjoyed the music, the food vendors, the artist booths, and other activities over the course of the weekend. The 2017 Donkey Creek Festival will continue the tradition. Both the City of Gillette and Gillette College are committed to keeping the Donkey Creek Festival an event the family can enjoy at no cost. Grants from the Campbell County Community Recreation District, the Campbell County Convention and Visitors Bureau and support from local businesses are helping make that possible again this year.
