Any day is a great day to visit Estes Park and The Ridgeline Hotel, but some days are extra special! From local programs in the community to unique dining events, we are excited to provide our guests with some truly exceptional special events to participate in.
Whether you’re planning a summer vacation for your family of five and have a furry friend in tow or you’re empty nesters looking for a romantic weekend getaway, Estes Park is alive with a variety of activities for all ages throughout the summer. Grab your favorite tanks, shorts, and hiking boots, and book your trip so you don’t miss out on the hottest summer events in Estes Park!
Grab a blanket and snacks and bring your date or the whole family to Thursday Night Live; a free outdoor concert every Thursday at 7:00 PM. Nestled on the edge of Fall River, Performance Park is an enchanting place to enjoy the fresh air with the amenities of downtown. Concerts feature local and national artists of all genres.
Want to experience the thrilling views, wildlife sightings, and spectacular alpine flowers that Rocky Mountain National park has to offer – from the comfort of a luxury 15-passenger convertible bus? Ridgeline Tours and our knowledgeable and passionate guides will take you on an informative and exciting tour of the Park, stopping along the way for short hikes to impressive viewpoints before arriving at the peak of Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous highway in the U.S.
Enjoy tastings from more than 20 Colorado wineries, fresh food, local Colorado vendors, and live music at the Estes Park Wine Festival. In addition to sipping on a variety of locally created wines, you can learn about the process of how wine is made in Colorado.
The 33rd annual Senior Pro Charity Rodeo features all the classic Rodeo performances such as steer roping and wrestling, barrel racing, saddle broncos, a mutton bustin’ competition, stick horse races for the kids, and of course, bull riding! Come enjoy authentic cowboy culture at Stanley Park Fairgrounds. Proceeds are donated to support local Colorado charities.
Did you know that Estes Park is the Celtic Capital of North America? The annual Scotfest celebrates Irish and Highlander heritage with parades, jousting, whiskey tasting, concerts, dance performances, and more. One braw event you won’t want to miss is Tattoo Estes, a patriotic performance by military regiments of over 300 performers. So bring the baims and prepare for a cultural weekend of awe and fun for the whole family!
Before the festival begins on Thursday, stop by The Ridgeline Hotel from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM for a Scotfest Pre-Party at Latitude 105! We will have Scottish food and drink specials, as well as a Jouster named James who will be onsite in full armor to sign autographs and take photos!
It’s hard to get much more pet-friendly than The Ridgeline Hotel! Not only do we allow any size/breed/number of dogs in our pet-friendly rooms – with no pet fee, by the way – but we invented a special “yappy hour” where dogs get to enjoy their own special menu and dine alongside their owners! On one weekend every month during our warm season, we will be offering food and drink specials in our Aspen Courtyard from 4pm – 6pm for both humans AND dogs.
Mark your calendars now for these remaining Yappy Hour weekends:
