Welcome to Medicine Lodge
Peace Treaty 2021
The Gypsum Hills is a special place on the plains. Geological features like buttes, canyons, and mesas throughout the region were home to Native-American heroes, path-blazing pioneers, and saloon-smashing temperance champions.
Every year the Peace Treaty Festival recognizes the things that make the area special among our Plains States peers. The Peace Treaty Associations hosts rodeos, a powwow, historical melodrama, children’s activities, vendors, and much more for three days. Come joins us in celebrating the physical and historical splendor of the region from September 24-26.
