September Events


Summer is still holding strong in Steamboat Springs…

For those of you that don’t know, September is one of the best months of the year in Steamboat, though we can say that about every month. As the weather starts to get slightly cooler and the crowds begin to thin, there is no better time to enjoy the trails and downtown streets. There is also no better time for some of Steamboat’s signature events; whether you want to dance the evening away, enjoy a cold craft beer, or sample some of our restaurant’s award-winning food.
