South Fork celebrates the area's culture and history during the Logger Days Festival. Events and competitions taking place throughout the weekend celebrate the time-honored tradition of logging, an initial economic draw for the area. Crowd-favorite competitions include chainsaw carving, the ax throw, the two-man cross cut, and a relay-type race with team members pulled from the audience.
An event over 100 years strong! The Manassa Pioneer Days
celebration packs the town chock-full of carnival rides, fair food,
old timey bandstands, Miss Pioneer princesses, and the event's
crown jewel, the parade—
A parade so stuffed with entertainment, it runs up and down Main

The Ski-Hi Stampede, Colorado's 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.
