Check out some of the most popular local events and activities.
Meeker Range Call
Takes place the first week of July each year
Since 1938, the small town of Meeker Colorado has celebrated our western heritage with its annual Range Call festival. In honor of keeping tradition alive, the Range Call Rodeo is a big part of the fun. The first rodeo held in Meeker was in 1885 during the town’s Fourth of July celebration, and has continued every year since, making Range Call the “oldest annual rodeo in Colorado”.
Meeker Sheepdog Trials
Held annually every September
The Meeker Classic Sheepdog Championship Trials offers five days of sheepdog herding competition for a purse totaling $25,000 plus ten special added awards including the Top Dog of the Day Award and daily handler awards from Moody Construction. This event is sanctioned by the USBCHA. The Sheepdog Trials are held annually in September, the first Wednesday through Sunday after Labor Day.
Drive the Flat Tops Scenic Byway
Scenic route connecting Meeker & Yampa Colorado
The historic Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway spans a remote 82 miles and connects the towns of Meeker & Yampa Colorado. Visitors to the Byway enjoy access to hundreds of miles of hiking trails, pristine Wilderness, excellent hunting & fishing, and a great selection of 4WD routes. In winter months, extraordinary opportunities for snowmobiling & cross-country skiing abound.
Visit the White River Museum
Get a dose of Meeker Colorado history
The History of Meeker can be seen first hand by visiting the White River Museum. The original structure was built in 1880 as quarters for U.S. Army officers. The army pulled out in 1883 and sold to the town, the officers’ quarters for $100 each and the adobe enlisted men’s barracks (on the block where the bank is) for $50 each. The museum was a private residence until 1945. The Garrison building, which recently underwent major renovation, was a residence until 1995, and the corner building continues to be a private home. Today, visitors can enjoy a collection of locally donated and acquired artifacts.
