Over 100 Years of 4th’s – Steamboat Springs

For over 100 years Steamboat Springs, Colorado has celebrated Independence Day in true western fashion, with events for the entire family. Kick back in your boots at several community events including a community all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast, the annual Yampa Valley Bank parade down Lincoln Avenue, Pioneer Days Block Party featuring a free community concert and Root Beer Floats for the kids, evening rodeos, and the Ranch Rodeo where local ranches compete against one another in the Old West tradition.

Join us for a breathtaking fireworks display at historic Howelsen Hill which holds the distinction of being one of the country’s oldest ski areas in continuous use. This nighttime extravaganza will begin at dark, roughly 9:30 P.M. For the best viewing location, you can get front row seats at the base of Howelsen Hill. Or celebrate the 4th at the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo and enjoy prime seating for the fireworks that follow.
