Victor, Colorado Packing Fun With September Burro Race

Experience a day of fast and furious and furry racing that must be seen to be believed. Load up the kids of all ages and come to historic for a day of four-footed races packed with old-time fun. The annual Western Pack Burro Ass-ociation race is held in early September each year. In 2018 there were 61 racers in the mad dash around the trails.

The annual Victor Pack Burro race kicks off at Noon in downtown with racers from across the region competing for cash prizes. The furry four-footeds are historically dubbed the Rocky Mountain Canary for their role in underground mining; the burros were used above ground during the gold rush era for hauling heavy loads, but also underground in the mines for the same tasks.

Today the burros are beloved symbols of days gone by and are, along with their trainers and human counterparts, the centerpiece of this event.

After the race, hang out in the new Pinnacle Park downtown plaza and check out the participating asses and meet their humans. All racing burros are entered into a Nicest Ass Contest with prizes awarded.

The Victor Elks Lodge #367 will have its bar open and provide music.
