Welcome to the Discover Weld - the web site showcasing the great people, places and events that call Weld County home. If you’re new to this site, thanks for visiting, and if you’re returning, welcome back!
Summer is off to a great start in Weld County! Farmers’ Markets and produce stands are in full swing, the 95th annual Greeley Stampede was a huge success and the skies above Frederick were filled with the quite beauty of dozens of colorful hot air balloons.
The fun continues into July with more fantastic activities for the entire family. Enjoy spending time outside with family and friends on our warm summer nights? Concert in the parks can be found in Erie, Mead and Windsor. Or, grab the blanket and some popcorn and take in a movie at the park in Firestone, Greeley or Gilcrest. Details for these events can be found in the events listing in the newsletter or in the Events section on this site.
And July wouldn’t be complete without these three unique Weld County events: Chainsaws and Chuckwagons in Frederick, the Greeley Arts Picnic and, of course, the Weld County Fair. You won’t want to miss any of the fun so be sure to mark your calendar with all of these great events!

As you travel throughout our beautiful state this summer, you may notice a tourism book for Weld County. Discover Weld was approached by the Greeley Tribune this spring about working on a tourism book to highlight Weld County. And since that is what Discover Weld is all about, it seemed like a great fit. The book, which is available at various tourism locations and state visitors centers throughout Colorado, highlights our county's events, attractions and more. To take a peek at the electronic version of the book, click here.
