Rocky Mountain National Park is open year-round, but the events and activities in, and around the park, change with the seasons. From road openings and closings (like the very seasonal Trail Ridge Road), to festivals and activities in and around the park and gateway town Estes Park, we have your complete guide to the happenings in Rocky Mountain National Park.
This three-day party celebrates Nederland’s only frozen resident (Grandpa Bredo, soon to be 109 years old). Yep, it’s a long story, but locals flock to this mountain town an hour south of Estes Park for the lookalike contest, art exhibits, salmon toss, live music at the Blue Ball, and Colorado’s only coffin race. And, oh yes, beer.
Enjoy local microbrews, organic food, art, and music as Boulder kicks off the summer season. More than 500 vendors attend this Memorial Day Weekend event, promoting sustainable living, the arts, and one of the wildest fundraisers ever, a rubber ducky river race.
