Grand County Goes Big for the 4th of July!

The quintessential summer holiday is best celebrated in the ideal summer location--the Rocky Mountains of Colorado in what, in our opinion, is one of the best mountain communities around. Simply being up in the mountains with the cooler air and opportunity to play outside might be your idea of the perfect 4th. From riding the hundreds of miles of mountain biking trails, hiking around lakes or to the top of peaks, heading out for an afternoon on the boat, rafting a river, fishing some of Grand County's gold medal waters, playing at Winter Park Resort's base, or taking laps at Trestle, it's one of the best places to be this time of year.

And it's definitely worth making a pit stop between your outdoor adventures at one of the county's multitude of 4th of July events that fill the week's calendar. Grand County pulls out all the stops to celebrate the founding of our country: from parades to fireworks to live music, the four-day party has something for everyone. We've compiled all the events and put them together in one place so you can spend your time enjoying the holiday instead of digging for event information! We hope to bump into you on the trail or out and about this 4th of July!
