Beaver Creek Rodeo Series returns June 20

The 18th annual Beaver Creek Rodeo Series returns on June 20. Each Thursday, the Beaver Creek Rodeo Series invites brave participants and even the most sophisticated of spectators to the rodeo grounds in Avon.

Featuring professional bronc and bull riding, team roping and barrel racing, as well as participant-friendly events for all ages, the rodeo delivers an action-packed evening. As no Beaver Creek event is complete without a delicious culinary experience, Western-inspired offerings are available from a range of local restaurants, as well as cold beer and margaritas.

Gold Dust Rodeo Festival

The Gold Dust Rodeo Festival is the official pre-party of the series and a celebration of Colorado’s Western identity with vendors, exhibits, music and family-friendly activities in Beaver Creek Village. Rodeo attendees can check in early and receive a commemorative gift before taking a complimentary shuttle down to the rodeo.

New this year, families are invited to enjoy the post-rodeo festival in Beaver Creek Village featuring live country music, line dancing, family photo opportunities and more. Both the pre- and post-rodeo events are complimentary.
