Castle Rock is a thriving community, and the Town’s western heritage is alive and well. Don’t miss the weekend of activities to celebrate Douglas County’s history and honor a longstanding tradition - the Douglas County Fair and Rodeo. Western Heritage Welcome kicks off the celebration.
Friday, July 29 6 to 8 p.m. Downtown Castle Rock
The Old West will truly come to life. Watch as cowhands from Silverado Ranch drive a herd of longhorn cattle through Downtown. Starting at Rock Park, the herd will continue along Perry Street before completing the journey right in front of the Castle Rock Police Department.
During the 1800s, large herds of cattle were driven through Colorado. The route, known as the “Goodnight-Loving Trail,” started just east of Colorado Springs and passed through the area on the way to the stockyards in Denver. This event helps honor that heritage.
