Watch the Wild West come to life with the Western Heritage Welcome July 30

Western Heritage Welcome July 30

Castle Rock is a thriving community, but the Town’s western heritage is alive and well. Don’t miss a weekend full of activities to celebrate the community’s history and honor a longstanding tradition – the Douglas County Fair and Rodeo.

Western Heritage Welcome kicks off the celebration and honors a time when large herds of cattle were driven through Downtown Castle Rock. Cowboys and city folk alike are invited to join the celebration from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 30.

The Old West will truly come to life. Starting at 6 p.m., watch as cowhands drive a herd of longhorn cattle from Rock Park, down Perry Street, and into a corral near Festival Park. Residents are invited to grab a seat along Perry Street. Find a map of the best viewing locations at CRgov.com/WesternHeritage

Following the cattle drive, come to Festival Park for a variety of western-themed activities including food, cocktails, old-time photos, crafts and more. Plus, the Park County Regulators, a team of Old West reenactment actors, will perform a wild west show around 6:45 p.m. Please be advised the actors will be using blank ammunition during their performance that will create a loud noise.

Starting at 5 a.m., parking will not be available on Perry Street. Parking will also be closed at Rock Park. At 4:30 p.m., Perry Street will be closed from Scott to South streets. Please keep safety in mind, and stay behind the protective barriers along Perry Street. Celebrate the roots of our community and give the Douglas County Fair and Rodeo the welcome it deserves. 

The Douglas County Fair and Rodeo runs through Aug. 8. Get your tickets at douglascountyfairandrodeo.com.

The Saturday celebration begins with the Douglas County Fair and Rodeo Parade at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, July 31. The old-fashioned parade starts on the south end of Town and continues through Downtown. More at castlerock.org. And, following the parade, join an old-fashioned themed fair at Boots and Brews. The festival will have food trucks, beer and live music in Festival Park from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Get all the details at downtowncastlerock.com.
