End of August through Labor Day
Official state agricultural and industrial fairs started in the United States in the middle of the nineteenth century. The Colorado Agricultural Society held the territory’s first agricultural fair northwest of Denver in September 1866, featuring a half-mile racetrack as well as displays of large vegetables and prize livestock. Over the next two years, the fair expanded to include more agricultural exhibits as well as examples from the territory’s mining industry.
CANCELED FOR 2023: After the debut event in Pueblo, Colorado in 2022, Gravel Locos is returning to Pueblo. The heart of the entire race series remains the same: Helping Volunteer Fire Departments Nationwide.
‘Tis the season of joy and merriment in Pueblo! As November and December unfold, our charming city transforms into a festive wonderland, teeming with holiday cheer and delightful community gatherings. Picture this: the dazzling spectacle of the Courthouse Lighting, where the heart of our town glows fireworks and lasers igniting the warmth of the season. Join the excitement of the Parade of Lights, a radiant procession down Main Street.
But that’s not all—venture into the wild enchantment of ElectriCritters at the Zoo, where twinkling lights of familiar animal friends create a magical atmosphere for all ages. The Holiday Lighting at the Riverwalk comes alive with lights all around, casting a spell of enchantment along the water’s edge. And for a touch of rustic charm, immerse yourself in the Beulah Yule Log Festival, a celebration that harks back to tradition with a modern twist.
Third weekend after Labor Day
The Pueblo Chile and Frijoles Festival was created to promote Pueblo’s rich agriculture and encourage our community, and region, to buy local fresh products at any of the numerous farm stands and specialty shops available during the festival and year-round. The event features live entertainment, street vendors, cooking competitions, and chilies, chilies, chilies! Held downtown along Union Avenue, the festival draws Pueblo residents as well as people from across the state and around the nation.
