Estes Park Go 4th Festival

INDEPENDENCE DAY WEEKEND CELEBRATION

Home to Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park is the ideal all-American destination for Fourth of July celebrations. In addition to one of the most spectacular fireworks displays in the state (always held on July 4), this quintessential Colorado mountain village offers a variety of family-friendly festivities and events specifically tailored for the holiday, in addition to an abundance of outdoor recreation activities.

Arrive a day early to enjoy the Tunes, Treats and Toasts Party on July 3rd from 4 - 9pm at the Fairgrounds at Stanley Park. Partake in a celebration of independence with a pig roast and beer garden while listening to live entertainment. Kids have plenty to do to keep busy with face painting, a photo booth and big ball entertainment! Tickets are $8 (Ages 12 and older), $4 Kids (Ages 6 - 12) and (Ages 5 and under) are free. Pig Roast Dinner, $8. Proceeds go to the Estes Park Board of Realtors Scholarship Fund. 

On Friday July 4th, spend the afternoon enjoying hiking, bike riding, paddle boating, miniature golf or check out the Coolest Car Show. More than 100 "Steam -to-Electric" vehicles will be displayed at the new Estes Park Events Complex, located at the Fairgrounds at Stanley Park. Along with steam and electric cars, other street rods, stock cars, muscle cars, sports cars, vintage and classic cars will be on display.

At 7 p.m., the Estes Village Band tunes up for its annual patriotic concert featuring the works of John Philip Sousa and others. The concert is free to attend and will be held at the Performance Park Amphitheater, at the west end of downtown.

The Fireworks Show starts at 9:30pm over Lake Estes! You won't want to miss one of Colorado's most glorious fireworks displays! Find a grass spot at Stanley Park, along the Lake Estes Trail or on your favorite mountainside to join in this annual tradition of national pride. 

Additional Weekend Activities: 

Per tradition, July 4 kicks off with the old-fashioned Independence Day Pancake Breakfast -eggs, sausage, juice, coffee, and, of course, pancakes. Headquarters for the breakfast is Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church at 920 Big Thompson Ave.

Soak in the spirit of the American West at the Professional Bull Riding atthe Fairgrounds at Stanley Park. Watch some of the fastest and largest bucking bulls in the country compete for top designations and the best bull riders from across the United States hold on for a thrilling ride to win distinguished honors and prizes.   

Book your lodging today - before it's too late! To make it easier for all Estes Park guests to get around, on July 4th, the Estes Park FREE Shuttles have extended evening service hours so all can easily attend the evening festivities. See the Shuttles page or call 970-577-9900 for more information on the shuttle system.
