The Heldorado Days celebration, a Cochise County Event, is held on the weekend near the date of the historical Gunfight at the OK Corral.

There are many Cochise County events that happen during October. We have already mentioned some in our earlier blog on Tombstone events in October. These Old West events include The Vendetta Ride, Helldorado Days and the Cowboy Action Shooting State Championships. During Heldorado Days there are many people that dress up for the event. But there are other Cochise County events that are close to Down By The River B and B, “The Lodging Hub of Cochise County.

Both Willcox and Bisbee will be holding Wine Festivals. The Bisbee Wine Festival will be held on the 6th of October, only a few weeks away. This event takes place from 4 to 7 PM at the City Park in downtown Old Bisbee and features wine from all over the world, including Arizona wines. There will be food to go with the tastings from many of Bisbee’s restaurants, including Café Roka. If we are in Bisbee for the evening, Café Roka is the one outstanding restaurant Angie and I love to go to. The cost of the festival is $45.

The Willcox Wine Festival booths of Arizona Stronghold, Kief Joshua and Gallifant were represented at the last festival.

Willcox Fall Wine Festival will be held in Railroad Park on the 19th and 20th from 11 AM to 5 PM. This is on the same weekend as Helldorado Days making Down By The River a perfect Lodging Choice to be able to make both events. The festival has 16 wineries participating and will also feature live music both days. The cost is $15 and you get 8 tastings and a commemorative glass. There is also food available at the festival but we like to walk across the street to Rodney’s for catfish sandwiches. Rodney’s is a little hole in the wall shop but he does serve good catfish.

Other Cochise County events in Willcox include Rex Allen Days on the 4th through the 6th. Rex hailed from Willcox and was among the first singing cowboy movie stars. We have had many guests from the UK that come specifically to go to the Rex Allen Museum. The Museum is on Railroad Avenue and the Marty Robbins Museum is also close by. Sierra Vista will have the Art in the Park on the 5th and 6th and then the weekend after that they have a rock and mineral show.

The Tombstone stage ride give a historic tour of the town and is similar to the ones used on the Butterfield Stage Road.

Then last but not least is Benson Butterfield Days which will be held on the 12th and 13th. This celebrates the Butterfield Stage line that ran from St. Louis to San Francisco carrying mail and passengers. In conjunction with the Butterfield days events is a Rodeo at the Arena. Fireworks are scheduled for the Saturday evening.

So as you can see, it will be a busy time if you want to see all of the Cochise County events. The events are spread to all the corners of Cochise County. And of course Down By The River B and B is the perfect lodging location in Cochise County. That is why we are known as the “Lodging Hub of Cochise County. So check us out and see why our guests think we are the perfect choice for a getaway.

During Heldorado Days, many people dress up to play the part of outlaws, soiled doves, cowboys or lawmen to name a few. Terco Paco (obstinate Frank) is one of these Characters. The picture is courtesy of Terco Paco.
