August Events in Steamboat
Also known as the month that everyone works off the calories they gained during 4th of July barbeques
PikNik Theatre August 1-8
This yearly festival features talented local and national actors performing Shakespeare and original plays around town. The performances this summer will be A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Bee Man of Orn.
Steamboat Stinger August 10-11
The race that reminds you that Steamboat is the home of Olympians. The mountain bike course is 50+ miles while the trail running course is 26.2 miles. You can do either, or if you really want to be sore on Monday, you can compete in the full Queen Bee or King Sting, where you do both the 50 mile bike course on Saturday and then the marathon on Sunday. The third option (which I always go with) is cheering everyone on at the start!
Colorado Classic: First stage to start in Steamboat August 22
Come and watch this bike race for a chance to enjoy Steamboat’s outdoors! This race is also the only standalone women’s stage race in the Western Hemisphere.
Yampa Valley Crane Festival, August 29-September 1
The Colorado Crane Conservation Coalition is personally one of my favorite groups in town. They love educating anyone who is curious about Greater Sandhill Cranes, and they have fun doing it. At the festival you learn more about cranes and also meet some wonderful people.
Farmers Market, Recurring Saturday
The market is located on 7th and Yampa and home to great vendors and great food.
