Dennis Hopper Day is an official proclamation of Taos Pueblo, the Town and County of Taos, and the State of New Mexico.

Easy Rider stars Peter Fonda and director Dennis Hopper as two biker buddies — Wyatt, aka Captain America (Fonda) and Billy (Hopper) — who travel through the Southwest and South with the money they made from their last cocaine deal.

Famous scenes from Hopper’s iconic counter-culture classic were shot in Taos, including Taos Pueblo, Taos Old County Jail, Stagecoach Hot Springs, and the fields of sagebrush behind the Dennis Hopper Day host hotel, the Sagebrush Inn & Suites.

In the rebel spirit of Dennis Hopper, you never know what special guests will show up at Dennis Hopper Day.
