Toughest Monster Truck Tour at the Casper Events Center

Lineup includes: Bigfoot, Snake Bite, Quad Chaos, Dirt Crew, and two more, plus a side act!

Last year, Bigfoot came back with a vengeance after losing the Tour Championship to rival Snake Bite the year before. The competition was tough at all events in 2018, with less than 10 points separating Bigfoot and second place winner Quad Chaos going into the Championship Weekend in Grand Forks-but Bigfoot stayed the course and won. In 2019, the competition will be more fierce than ever, with Quad Chaos looking to redeem himself, 2017 Champion Snake Bite vowing to take back the title and the rest of the field looking to make an upset.

In addition to the monster truck action, thrilling side acts will be featured. It may be Freestyle Motocross, a car-eating, fire-breathing mechanical dinosaur or battling intergalactic robots. Starts at 7:30 p.m.

Rosencrantz & Gilderstern are Dead at Stage III

Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

Heart Discussion at the Science Zone

Celebrate the incredible heart this Valentine’s day during the Science Zone’s annual Open Hearts Day on February 9th. We’ll literally be diving into one of the body’s most important organs, the heart, as we dissect it to find out the what, why, and how of our body’s central blood pump. We’ll compare different mammal hearts including elk, pronghorn, cow, and sheep and explore the path of blood flow through the heart’s atria, ventricles, arteries and veins.

Dissections are $5 per heart at 10:30 AM, 1:00 PM, and 3:00 PM and spaces are limited! Children under the age of 9 should be accompanied by an adult. Call to reserve a spot.

“Face of Winter” at Hogadon

Loving the pure joy of winter is something we have in common with the late, great Warren Miller—who helped create and capture the magic of skiing. This year, “Face of Winter,” the 69th installment from Warren Miller Entertainment presented by Volkswagen, will bring new and veteran athletes alike together to pay tribute to the man who started it all.

Watch as the world’s best skiers and riders cover ground in some of the most legendary destinations to honor a face that launched a thousand quips and got us all started on this long, crazy ride. Visit some of Warren’s favorite locations from Switzerland to Chamonix, British Columbia to Alaska, Chile, Iceland, New Zealand and more. 

Come along to far off regions, meet the locals, carve faces of remote mountain ranges, and celebrate the thrills of a life lived in high places. 

Join in the tribute and continue the legacy. We are all the “Face of Winter.”

The Warren Miller Film Tour kicks off on October 12, 2018. Stay tuned for show dates near you. 

2018 film tour sponsors include Volkswagen, L.L.Bean, Helly Hansen, Marmot, Switzerland Tourism, Mount Gay Rum, K2, Black Crows, Marker Dalbello Völkl USA, Blizzard Tecnica, and SKI Magazine. Starts at 6 p.m.
