Annual major events

The city has hosted many high-profile national and international events and is home to the historic Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (held every June), the 2nd oldest motor-sport’s event in the U.S. after the Indianapolis 500.

The foot race to the summit during the Pikes Peak Marathon is the second-oldest foot race in the U.S., behind the Boston Marathon.

The annual Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo and Hot Air Balloon Classic have been voted by the American Bus Association as one of the “Top 100 Events in North America”.

The Western Museum of Mining and Industry coordinates an event annually in June called the Pikes Peak Antique Machinery Days, displaying over 200 items that are approximately 100 years old.
The Western Museum also coordinates Tea in the Garden, a traditional, turn-of-the-century tea with presentations on Iris gardening.
