Held Thursday nights from the end of June through mid-August, this is no rinky-dink rodeo. About 2,000 locals and visitors turn out weekly to watch incredibly talented cowboys (and cowgirls!) compete in such events as bronc riding, team roping, bull riding and more. The announcers and rodeo clowns are incredibly entertaining, plus visiting children can even get into the act by signing up for mutton’ bustin and the calf scramble! There’s fun for the whole family with pony rides, face painting, a mechanical bull, and plenty of food and drink vendors outside of the riding arena. The rodeo lot is located in Avon; free shuttle service is available from Beaver Creek Village. This is definitely a don’t-miss event if you’re in Beaver Creek on a Thursday night in the summer months.
