Range Call ~ Oldest continuous rodeo in state

MEEKER I Since 1938, the small town of Meeker, Colo., has celebrated our western heritage with its annual Range Call festival. In honor of keeping tradition alive, the Range Call Rodeo is a big part of the fun. The first rodeo held in Meeker was in 1885 during the town’s Fourth of July celebration, and has continued every year since, making Range Call the “oldest annual rodeo in Colorado.”
Complementing the rodeo action each year are a variety of enjoyable events including concerts, the annual barn dance, historical reenactments, plenty of food and activities downtown.
The Fourth of July parade is always a highlight of Range Call and is accompanied by other smaller local events such as a pancake breakfast, 5K run, and root beer floats provided by the Rio Blanco County Historical Society. Join us once again in 2013 as we celebrate the 128th Meeker Range Call.
