Historical Celebration at 10,200ft

71st Boom Days Celebration is Postponed until 2021

Boom Days is sad to announce that due to concerns related to COVID-19 and its long term economic and health implications, we will be postponing our 71st celebration until August 2021.  We strongly value our relationship with the local community, our vendors, event participants and all the attendees that make this such a great event year after year.  We owe it to all of you to make sure we host a safe and fun event.  Exercising caution this year and postponing the 2020 celebration will insure that we have the resources to continue the event for years to come.  We hope that you will join us in August 2021 for what we hope will be the best Boom Days ever!  Thank you for your support!


Leadville Boom Days is a Colorado Mountain Festival and historical celebration of the Old West, with gunslingers, burro races, contests of mining skill, and a street fair with over 100 food and craft booths. It is always the first full weekend in August. In 2020 it will run August 7th, 8th and 9th. Come join us for three days of fun, food, arts and crafts, and activities for the whole family!
Leadville is located in the heart of the central Colorado Rockies, at an elevation of two miles above sea level. This authentic, real wild west, historic mining town is nestled in a beautiful high mountain valley surrounded by the highest mountains in the state. So high that they are snow covered most of the year. Come to Leadville and enjoy the beauty of the Sawatch and Mosquito ranges, the fascinating history of the biggest gold and silver boom town there ever was! The people are friendly, the air is clean and refreshing, and enjoy Leadville, Colorado on its biggest weekend of the year!
