"2019 will be the forty-ninth year that Butler Amusements, Inc. has served fairs, celebrations, festivals and fundraising events in the Western United States. With a huge array of rides, attractions, games and food concessions, Butler Amusements has been a dominant player in the carnival business in the West for decades. The carnival operates three units, which sometimes split in two each, running as many as six events on any given week.
Butler Amusements is one of the largest carnival companies in the Western states, and offers carnivals for a wide range of events from major fairs to smaller festivals. The company is proud of its commitment to both safety and to energy conservation, and emphasizes offering guests the newest rides available, and strives to live up to its tag line of the “cleanest show in the west.” The company began in 1960, when George "Bud" Butler began purchasing games and rides with his son Earl "Butch" Butler. From a small beginning, they owned 130 rides by 1996. Butch Butler passed away in 2011; Mick Brajevich became the current CEO and president of the company.
Butler Amusements as a company has been recognized with the Circle of Excellence Designation by the Outdoor Amusement Business Association, which is given to only a selected group of U. S. carnivals, and the company is proud of that.
“Butler Amusements is a family owned and operated company,” Stillwell stresses. “In 2020, we will be celebrating our 50th year in business. We cherish our relationship with our fair and event partners and continue to make improvements to our operations which leads to excellent customer service.” "
