About Us

Oldest Annual Rodeo in Colorado


Oldest Annual Rodeo in Colorado

Since 1938, the small town of Meeker Colorado 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, and plenty of food and unique vendors.

Meeker is known to have one of the best fireworks displays on the western slope. Our 4th 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 Meeker Historical Society.

Join us this year as we once again celebrate the Meeker Range Call!

Meeker Bank Robbery


One of the most dramatic events ever to occur in northwestern Colorado was the attempted robbery of the Bank of Meeker which occurred on Tuesday, October 13, 1896.

For a few hectic moments, bullets flew thick and fast in this pioneer town. When the fight was over, several Meeker citizens were nursing wounds, and the three bank robbers were dead.

The lightning-like promptness with which the robbers were disposed of was a tribute to the early residents of Meeker and notice to the world that frontier men were without fear and shot straight and fast when the occasion required. The incident, a sensation throughout the nation, was played up by all the great newspapers of the country, and congratulations poured in from all parts of the nation.

Join us as long-time Meeker residents once again gather to reenact the historic events that unfolded as they did the day Jim Shirley and his gang went down in local history.  The event will begin at 1 pm, located in downtown Meeker at 6th & Main Street.
