The 2016 Kansas Governor’s Ringneck Classic hosted by Oakley, Kansas
Thursday – Sunday
November 17, 18, 19 & 20
The 2016 Kansas Governor’s Ringneck Classic returns to Oakley, Kansas.
Located at the junction of Interstate 70 and US Highways 83 and 40 in Northwest Kansas, Oakley celebrates the birthplace of the “Legend of Buffalo Bill”. It was here in Logan County in 1868 that William F. Cody won his title of Buffalo Bill in a buffalo-hunting contest with William Comstock. Our twice life-sized bronze sculpture of Buffalo Bill on his horse in pursuit of a running buffalo, by Kansas sculptor Charlie Norton, is one of the largest bronzes of its kind anywhere in the world and is one of the “8 Wonders of Kansas Art”. Enjoy the Buffalo Bill Cultural Center, outdoor storyboard, and picnic area. Join us at the Cultural Center in October during the Kansas State corn-husking contest.
