Selected One of “THE TOP 101 WESTERN EVENTS” in the country by American Cowboy magazine
It’s been 117 years since the Gunnison Valley started celebrating its western way of life. Each July, the ranching culture struts its stuff in the “Granddaddy of Colorado Rodeos,” an event staged by the community for PRCA competitors and the people who love to watch them.
During the 2017 celebration, Cattlemen’s Days promises the same kind of boot-stomping entertainment that Gunnison pioneers enjoyed – but on a grander scale. Bull riding, barrel racing and the best cowboys and cowgirls – hold onto your hat for the Valley’s finest tradition! The dates for 2017 are tentatively scheduled for July 7th – 16th. Rodeos are the 13th, 14th, and 15th. There is something for everyone at the 2017 Cattlemen’s Days!
