Social Events Returning to Colorado
The Coronoa Virus brought many challenges to the United States this year. Everyone has been affected by this pandemic in some way. Social distancing guidelines, though an important step that was taken to reduce our number of active cases, are slowly starting to ease in Colorado. A lot of events were closed to comply with these social distancing orders, but there is some good news. Though half of the year is already over, there are still many activities that you and your family can enjoy.
Colorado was built on the backs of cowboys and that history is still here today. The centennial state is known for its rodeos and cattle shows. For four days starting July 2nd, you can enjoy the 117th annual Cowboys' Roundup Days in downtown Steamboat Springs. This is a truly western celebration of our Independence Day. Expect concerts, a parade, rodeo, fireworks, and other activities. Another great event to attend this year is Cattlemen's Days in Gunnison. Occurring over labor day weekend, this festival will include western rodeo competitions and live music. A tradition since 1900, this event is nicknamed the Granddaddy of Colorado Rodeos.
Not a big fan of the rodeo? That's okay, there are many other events to experience in Colorado this July. Take the Breckenridge Art Festival for instance. Nationally ranked as one of the top fine art festivals in the United States, this event will interest a wide range of art enthusiasts. There's also the highly anticipated Colorado Renaissance Festival. Put on your knight armor and get into the medieval spirit this year in Larkspur. Though most events have been pushed back to August, this creative venue will be open every weekend until the end of September. Remember that all of the times and dates of events in this article are subject to change and you should always check availability before making plans. If you are sick, please stay home. If you are able to attend these events, remember to wear a mask when appropriate.
