The month of Elktober kicks off with a celebration of Estes Park's thousands of elk! Enjoy live music, Native American performances, educational seminars, elk-themed shopping, a beer garden & self-guided elk-viewing tours. Join in the drama as we scout the valley for large herds & competing bulls - exhibiting their rituals of bugles and battles! Take part in the amateur elk bugling contest on Sunday. With echoing elk calls, golden aspens and amazing outdoor adventures, autumn in the Rockies doesn't get any better than Estes Park!
