You’re Invited….

The year long centennial celebration of Rocky Mountain National Park culminateswith the official rededication ceremony on Friday, September 4th at Glacier Basin Campground on the east side of the park.

 

Join Governor John Hickenlooper, Senator Cory Gardner, National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis, Rocky Mountain National Park Superintendent Vaughn Baker and Honorary Chair of Rocky’s Centennial Senator Mark Udall in the meadow at Glacier Basin Campground for music, family activities and cake from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. as we dedicate Rocky Mountain National Park for the next 100 years.  The area will open at 9 a.m. for event attendees.  The Glacier Basin Campground parking area is expected to fill early so a portion of Rocky Mountain National Park’s Park and Ride lot will be reserved for event attendees.

 

Rather than drive and worry about parking, ride the free shuttle. The bus will run from Estes Park Fairgrounds Park & Ride directly to Glacier Basin Campground beginning at 9 a.m. and will continue through 2:30 p.m.  Buses from the Fairgrounds will not run during the event.  Space is limited so please plan ahead, arrive early, carpool or use the shuttle. For more information about the events or for general questions about Rocky Mountain National Park, please call the park’s Information Office at (970) 586-1206
