Georgetown Bighorn Sheep Festival – Cancelled
November 8, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
COVID UPDATE: Due to the many unknowns the difficult decision has been made to cancel the 2020 event and we look forward to seeing you in 2021 ~ Save the Date: November 13, 2021.
Join the Historic Town of Georgetown and Colorado Parks & Wildlife for the Annual Georgetown Bighorn Sheep Festival!
Be sure to stop by the Bighorn Sheep Viewing Station and the Georgetown Gateway Visitor Center as trained volunteers with binoculars and spotting scopes help viewers locate the head-banging sheep and offer a brief lesson on the animals!
To visit the viewing station, take I-70 west from Denver to the Georgetown exit (#288). Turn left on Alvarado Road and follow the brown and white binocular signs until you reach the viewing station near Georgetown lake. Bighorns may be noticed from the highway, but, for the safety of both people and wildlife, please view sheep from the viewing station.
