Now in its 83rd year, Donkey Derby Days tops the list of favorite Cripple Creek events. People from all over the world descend on downtown, drawn by a chance to watch a race inspired by the town’s resident donkey herd, believed to be distant relatives of the original donkeys from the town’s Gold Rush days. Enjoy games, live entertainment, heritage competitions and other fun family activities that will make your visit one to remember! Visit our street vendors, enjoy our live entertainment and participate in a host of other family activities such as our heritage competitions or our activities for the children – guaranteed to make this weekend the best Donkey Derby Days ever. Don’t forget Fido – we have a dog show where your best friend can compete for prizes!
