Regardless of season, daytime Dillon, CO, events are bound to send you outdoors. Oftentimes, when visitors learn that Dillon is home to a reservoir, they are surprised to see how big it is and that it comes with dozens of things to do. If catching a lake breeze is one of your daytime Dillon, CO, event goals, you can get out on the water via a standup paddleboard, kayak, sailboat, small yacht or pontoon boat. Water taxis from the Dillon Marina offer a great way to travel from Dillon to Frisco, and the Explore Tour recounts the unusual local history of a town that’s been moved several times (and even purposely flooded). The Farmer’s Market on Fridays during the summer is a weekly destination for Dillon shoppers looking for local products from produce to fashion and art. It’s always a party when there’s face-painting for the kids! A few of the larger annual events present athletic opportunities with altitude. Both the second annual 106-Degree West Triathlon (September) and the Dillon Open Regatta (August) each claim to be the highest events in the world at this elevation (9,000 feet above sea level). In winter, it’s all about the snow sports, so get moving!
