90TH Annual Donkey Derby Days – AUGUST 14 & 15

August 14 - August 15

Now in its 90th year, Donkey Derby Days tops the list of favorite Cripple Creek events. People from all over the world descend on downtown to be inspired by the town’s resident donkey herd, believed to be distant relatives of the original donkeys from the town’s Gold Rush days. The event will be downsized this year to avoid large gatherings.
