Fireworks display planned for Aug. 1 in Castle Rock

Watch remotely in celebration of the Douglas County Fair & Rodeo and Colorado’s birthday

Fireworks over Castle Rock

Douglas County residents will have the opportunity to watch a high-flying fireworks show Saturday, Aug. 1 following the conclusion of the PRCA Rodeo at the Douglas County Fair & Rodeo. Join in as we celebrate not only the Fair & Rodeo tradition but Colorado Day and the state’s 144th birthday!

The show will blast off at approximately 8:30 p.m. from the top of Santa Fe Quarry west of I-25 above Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course in Castle Rock. Watch the show from your home, or at a nearby location from your vehicle or while socially distanced.

The fireworks will be visible throughout the Interstate 25 corridor, including from within Downtown Castle Rock. If you’re local to Castle Rock, we recommend watching from your own neighborhood if you can.
