Aspens turn to a golden hue. The sounds of elk bugles reverberate throughout the air. It's a perfect season for one of Estes Park's late-autumn traditions when a series of bands herald Autumn Gold – a Festival of Beer, Brats and Bands.
ADMISSION IS FREE!
Start making plans, and book your accommodations now. This particular weekend is a FREE DAY in Rocky Mountain National Park, and we are expecting many wonderful visitors!
At Autumn Gold Festival 2022, you can enjoy a freshly grilled brat with all the fixin's plus a cold brew (or a glass of wine) while listening to 5 award-winning, Front Range (and globally-acclaimed) bands.
Classic Car Show:
Meander through our Classic Car Show and experience the history behind these classic cars. Meet the owners, then vote for your favorite car in "The Peoples' Choice" awards. A trophy will be presented on Saturday AND Sunday. This year's trophies have been designed especially for the Autumn Gold Festival Classic Car Show. Each trophy is a one-of-a-kind! Check out our "CAR SHOW" page for more information.
Family Fun Area!
In addition to face painting and various lawn games, The Estes Valley Community Center will provide high-energy youth activities. The Boy Scouts of America (Troop 8) will also join the fun by providing thousands of Legos for families to build Lego-race cars. Many race tracks will be furnished for race time!
