The Wild West comes to Fort Knox with Gold Rush. Gold Rush features gaming, live and silent auctions, and many opportunities to win prizes. Musical entertainment is also provided with performances from the Saloon Girls. We also have a Run for the Gold horse race where participants bid on beautifully decorated wooden horses, provided by various groups on Post, to race for prizes –everyone is a winner as the horse is yours to keep. Gold Rush will be March 3, 2018.
*Please note, that due to gambling restrictions, patrons will not be playing for cash prizes. “Chips” collected while playing card games can be cashed in for opportunity prize tickets and can be redeemed at the General Store.
