JULY 4 – AUG 1

COLORADO SPRINGS RODEO

Our arena is filled with sites, sounds and smells of the Old West.

Attending and participating in a rodeo is an experience of a lifetime. At the COS Rodeo you will be on the arena floor, not just a spectator in the stands.

We want to build and share a memory for a lifetime with you.

Dinner, rodeo and a show.


Colorado Springs Annual Rodeo

Lots of fun events going on during the month of July.  Be safe and remember due to dry conditions and several fires within the state fireworks are illegal.  A few places to enjoy fireworks this year are at Memorial Park and Sky Sox Stadium.
