Welcome to Cattlemen’s Days!


2016 badgeSelected One of “THE TOP 101 WESTERN EVENTS” in the country by American Cowboy magazine

It’s been 116 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 2016 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 2016 are tentatively scheduled for July 8th – 17th. Rodeos are the 14th, 15th, and 16th.  There is something for everyone at the 2016 Cattlemen’s Days!
