The 18th annual Coolest Car Show takes place this July 4th, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Estes Park Event Center, located at Stanley Fairgrounds. This year’s theme is “Classic Rock Songs-And The Cars That Inspired Them”. Local Estes Park folk musicians, The Mountain Music Makers, will start off the festivities at 10:00 a.m. followed by Denver-based band Ugly Rumor beginning at 12:00 p.m. that afternoon. Admission is only $5 for adults, $2.50 for ages 6-17, and free for kids 5 and under. Tickets will be on sale that day in front of the Event Center main entrance and also inside in the lobby. The event features more than 100 “steam to electric” vehicles! The concession center opens at 11:00 a.m. that morning and there will be a “Coolest Kids Car Corner” with games and crafts plus several additional attractions.

A free concert by the Estes Village Band begins at 7 p.m. at the Performance Park Amphitheater, at the west end of downtown.  The concert will feature the patriotic works of John Philip Sousa and others.

The Fireworks Show starts at 9:30pm over Lake Estes-undoubtedly one of Colorado’s most glorious fireworks displays!

To make it easier for all Estes Park guests to get around on July 4th, the Estes Park FREE Shuttles have extended evening service hours so all can easily attend the evening festivities.

Such exciting festivities make celebrating Independence Day in Estes Park an unforgettable experience!
