Sundays at Six
One of the mainstays of the Alamosa Live Music Association is its free summer concert series, known locally as Sundays @ Six. Sundays @ Six started a few years back and has grown into a hallmark of the San Luis Valley summertime season. For two of the most beautiful months in our fair valley the community is exposed to all kinds of music, performed by everyone from the neighbor down the street to nationally recognized touring musicians.
The Ski-Hi Stampede, Colorados oldest pro rodeo, has roots as deep as the San Luis Valley itself. It began in 1919, but two years were deducted because of World War II, when no events were held. The first rodeo was held August 11-13, 1919, and was called the Ski-Hi Stampede. Old newspapers reported that more than 10,000 people assembled to watch the local competition. It has continued for nine decades as an annual event and is an important piece of western history that can still be lived.
Early Iron Festival 2015
e Early Iron Festival is your chance to see over 300 vintage vehicles painstakingly restored, heavily modified, or gently used. Take in the sunshine and sights as you explore machinery of yesteryear. The rodders circle Cole Park early Saturday morning looking forward to a day of talking, swapping, and catching up with old friends. Car buffs from Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Kansas swarm the park, oohing and aahing, choosing their favorite and trading stories about their first car. After an enjoyable day in the autumn sun, the Early Iron Club hosts a rodders banquet to a capacity crowd of 650. Food and beverages are available the main day of the event throughout the park.
