Fourth of July Celebration

June 30 - July 4, 2018

July 4th Parade SteamboatThe 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 Pioneer Block Party, Ski Jumping Extravaganza, hometown parade, and the largest Pro Rodeo event of the summer, have visitors proclaiming independence at this 100 year-old event.

115th 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.

Events like the Pro Rodeo Series and Pioneer Day Block Party, featuring a free concert and Routt Beer Floats, are proof Steamboat's western roots are alive and well.

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