Labor Day Weekend Festival

Labor Day Weekend Festival
Day and Time

Sep 4th, 7:00am - 9:00pm

Kick off Labor Day Weekend in Creede with the annual Balloon Festival as spectators can watch hot air balloons launch each morning and balloon glows each evening. 

Saturday’s festivities begin at 9 a.m. with the Creede Mountain Run, where participants of all ages can enjoy a 2-, 12-, 22-mile, or a 50k race through the breathtaking San Juan Mountains. Then at 11 a.m., enjoy the annual Salsa Fiesta celebration where local chefs and businesses try their hands at creating original salsa concoctions that fall into four categories: Red, Green, Fruit and Freestyle—the best part: You get to be the judge!

Other festivities include a kids’ bounce house and carnival games, live music, fireworks, and an ATV Rodeo for the whole family.
