The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program is honored to participate in this mountain festival which raises money to support the Rist Canyon Volunteer Fire Department. Come on up for a beautiful day in the mountains, meet some raptors, and support our local heroes.
For a worthy cause and a beautiful day outdoors, the Rist Canyon Mountain Festival offers action-packed fun and family-friendly entertainment on Labor Day weekend. Come join the fun!
Funds raised from the Mountain Festival are vital for the financial operations of the all-volunteer, 100% donation based fire department. RCVFD provides fire, medical, and emergency services to over 100 square miles.
Don your kilt and tartan and visit with the Raptors at this classic event in the Colorado highlands. Live raptors will be on display all three day to educate and to teach about how we rehabilitate and release injured birds of prey. Caring for over 300 birds annually, you can learn how to become part of our important mission.
