More fun at Eagle in the month of July and August
If you are looking for a quick fun getaway this season, Eagle Colorado is the place for you. To kick off the summer of 2014 Eagle county has already begun its annual festivities of flight days and the Eagle County Fair and Rodeo. These events are a celebration of the town’s spirit, longstanding tradition and culture of bonhomie, but most importantly it is a chance for both locals and visitors to get together and have old-fashioned, good and clean fun.
Every year the rodeo fair is hosted with a number of events and for good reason too. These celebrations are now a time-honored tradition of this part of the world. Started in the late 1930’s as a mark of US’s strength and endurance reflected in its successful survival of the Great Depression, the rodeo and fair is now a part and parcel of the townspeople’s lives’ and any visitor is more than welcome to participate in the merrymaking.

The program begins at 6:30pm every week and the program is scheduled to happen throughout the months of July and August.

The most spectacular part of the program is the live tribute to country music to be paid by the band.
