Labor Day weekend in Steamboat Springs is packed with entertainment and events for the entire family which run from downtown to across the entire valley. Along with the festivities, the weekend brings street closures and impacts over the three days.
“It’s best to keep these closures and impacts in mind to eliminate any chance of a family feud over the holiday,” said Steamboat Springs Police Chief Cory Christensen. “There’s a lot going on, so plan extra time to get to your events and functions; and, most importantly, celebrate the holiday responsibly.”
While this list does not encompass all the events over the holiday; it does highlight events which are anticipated to have impacts or closures on city streets and facilities. For a complete listing of festivities taking place over the Labor Day weekend, visit the Steamboat Springs Chamber’s website.

Dogs in Cars & Unattended
Don’t forget about your best friend over the holiday and understand that dogs are not permitted at most events. It’s best to leave your pet at home and DO NOT leave them in your vehicle or unattended in town. To report an animal complaint or animal emergency, contact Steamboat Springs Animal Control at 970.879.1144. For a lost or missing animal, call the Routt County Humane Society Animal Shelter at 970.879.7247 with a description of your pet, their name and your contact information.
While the area is not currently under any fire restrictions at this time, it’s important to remember to be safe with open flames and to drown campfires completely. “The area has seen two small fires recently, which fortunately have been extinguished quickly by local fire agencies, but it reinforces the need to continue to exercise caution,” commented Fire Chief Mel Stewart.
The City of Steamboat Springs would like to thank residents and guests for their cooperation and wishes everyone a safe and wonderful Labor Day holiday weekend.
