Fourth of July Celebration

2023 Details Coming Soon

The Fourth of July in Steamboat is more than a celebration of national pride; it’s an opportunity to honor the Yampa Valley’s rich western heritage with fun for all.

Events like the Ski Jumping Extravaganza, hometown parade, and the largest Pro Rodeo event of the summer, have visitors proclaiming independence at this 100+ year-old event.

119th Annual Cowboys' Roundup Days

For more than 100 years Steamboat Springs, Colorado has celebrated Independence Day in true western fashion. This is a special holiday and Steamboat does it right with a hometown parade followed by an old-fashioned community block party

Please note that during all events over the July 4th weekend, there will be additional parking available at Steamboat Springs High School and the Stockbridge Transit Center.
