This is a past event.

This year's Donkey Derby Days jamboree, like the 82 that came before it, will celebrate life at treeline and Cripple Creek's resident donkey herd, a reminder of the area's Gold Rush history. Hijinks will include Tobacco Spitting and Best Beard contests, Chicken Poop Bingo, and a competition for the most fetching hairy legs. There will also be a pancake breakfast, a parade, lots of kids activities, a beer garden, a street dance, a melodrama and, of course, the donkey races. Admission is free; go to for a full weekend schedule. Mary Jo Meade
