If you have ever visited someplace that doesn’t really have a lot to offer for your vacationing pleasures, you’ll be relieved to know Steamboat Springs is NOT such a place! In addition to the typical activities and attractions in the area, there are some exciting and special upcoming events that add a little extra shine to an already sparkling getaway. Check out some of the best upcoming Steamboat Springs activities below!

Barbecue and Barn Dance, September 22, Wandering Creek Ranch

Charming and fun, this old-fashioned event is the perfect way to spend a Saturday evening during your Steamboat Springs vacation. Offering a throwback to when communities were closer and your neighbors watched out for each other, somehow the barbecue tastes better and the music plays sweeter when you realize the proceeds will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Steamboat Springs. Tickets cost $35 for adults, $15 for children, and are free for kids 3 and under.

Color Run and Other Steamboat Springs Activities, October 6, Steamboat Christian Center

As the holidays draw closer, the calorie load we ingest grows larger, and this fun run helps counteract the cookies and cakes and other sweet treats we all inhale! Offering a one-mile hike or run and a two-mile hike or run and with costs starting at $15 and topping out at $25, don’t forget to wear your whitest clothes to make the most out of your colorful run!

Halloween Stroll, October 31, Downtown Steamboat Springs 5:00 to 7:00PM

Just because you chose Halloween for your Colorado escape doesn’t mean you have to deprive your children of the chance to dress up and go beg for candy; our Halloween Stroll offers a safe alternative to going to the doors of strangers! Closing down the streets of Steamboat makes it even safer, and you know the businesses passing out candy are going to spring for the good stuff!

Festival of Trees, November 17th through November 27th, 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM

It may seem a little soon to start talking about decorating trees for Christmas, but time flies fast as we get older, and Christmas is just a few short months away. Held at the Tread of Pioneers Museum which is transformed into a magical holiday wonderland with a forest of trees decorated in their holiday finest by local merchants, this free family-friendly event fits into any vacation budget; it’s also the perfect place to take your annual Christmas card photo!
