Here in Steamboat Springs, we believe that the 4th of July should be celebrated for more than just one day. That’s why our celebrations begin on Friday and last until Independence Day on Tuesday.  We have condos downtown that offer a front-row seat to one of the largest and best fireworks displays in Colorodo!

We are looking forward to hosting you for the July 4th Weekend in Steamboat.









The celebrations kick off on Friday with Art on the Mountain. Artisans from near and far gather in Gondola Square to show off their craft for the 16th year in a row (this even lasts all weekend).  Once the sun is set, you outta buckle up because the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series at Brent Romick Arena will have you on the edge of your seat.  Bull and bronc riding, calf roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing, and a slue of kid’s events provide old-fashioned western entertainment for the whole family.  If you can’t make Friday nights’ rodeo, fear not—the fun continues on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday nights.



Wake up! After a delicious breakfast at Freshies, stroll on downtown to the Farmers Market where you’ll find locally grown produce and specialty items for sale at the corner of 7th and Yampa Street.  With over 75 vendors, you’re sure to find some goodies you just can’t resist!  Music?  We’re glad you asked because there are two concerts to check out Saturday evening.  Around 5pm Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers will host a free concert at Howelsen Hill Ampitheater.


Family Bike Rides in Winter ParkSunday & Monday

On Sunday and Monday we suggest getting outside and going for a hike, a bike ride or a relaxing float down the Yampa River. Click here for more information on tubing and biking during your Steamboat Springs vacation. The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club’s Ski Jumping Extravaganza is a must see at 3:00. Watch as 60 of the nations best athletes soar off the HS45 and HS75 meter jumps at Howelsen Hill.

Art on the Mountain and the Pro Rodeo Series events are still going on these days so if you haven’t made it over to these exciting events then get to it!


Let freedom ring, the big day is here.  Happy July 4th!  Get up bright and early because the day is packed with activities from morning to night.  The annual Pancake Breakfast at Little Toots Park begins at 7am and at 10am the Fourth of July Parade rolls down Lincoln Avenue followed by the Pioneer Block Party.  From 11am-1pm enjoy free admission to the Tread of Pioneers Museum, a community concert and Routt Beer Floats.  For more ski jumping fun head back to Howelsen Hill for the Jumpin’ & Jammin’ Competition and Community Party.


Hopefully you’ve saved some energy for the main event, the Fourth of July fireworks show.  

This spectacular lighting of the sky is one of the biggest firework displays in Colorado.
