The Town of Bennett is excited to host the 11th annual Bennett Days Celebration. After 2020 presented new challenges to the Bennett Community, the Town is looking forward to returning to our traditional Bennett Days event.
Bennett Days will take place on Saturday, September 11, 2021. The event will kick off with the “Stronger Together” parade through Old Town at 10 a.m. Immediately following the parade there will be a vendor street fair, family fun zone, giveaways, a food truck rally and live entertainment until 4 p.m.
The Town Board of Trustees will serve a free dinner at 4:30 p.m. followed by the “Bennett Days Bull Games” bull riding event at 6 p.m. The evening will conclude with a firework show displayed in partnership with the Bennett-Watkins Fire Rescue.
For the first time at Bennett Days, the Town and the Board of Trustees will be hosting a toy drive to support the Holiday Help program. Those who bring a new unwrapped toy or give a cash donation will have the opportunity to win additional prizes.
The Town of Bennett works in partnership with the Bennett Arts Council, Bennett Parks and Recreation District, the I-70 Chamber of Commerce, the Bennett School District, the Bennett-Watkins Fire Protection District, VFW Post #8449, Anythink Libraries, the Corridor Creative Arts League, the Bennett Community Food Bank and our generous sponsors to host the annual event.
The Town of Bennett is currently planning for the event that Bennett Days guests, exhibitors, and community partners have loved for many years. However, should current safety protocols change updates can be found online or on the Town’s social media pages.
As an agency of the State of Colorado, the Town of Bennett adheres to all health and safety protocols set forth by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and Tri-County Health Department. We will continue to coordinate with public health officials and follow the most current guidance for both indoor and outdoor events.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease and can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. CDPHE and CDC still strongly recommend that all people wear a mask in public. Vaccination is the best protection against COVID-19 including the delta variant.
More information on COVID-19 can be found here.
Bennett Days has always been a free event to the community and in order to keep it free we need your help. We highly encourage all businesses, non-profits and stakeholders in the I-70 Corridor region to be involved in order to increase recognition and promote our community as a whole.
If you want to sponsor, provide swag for our giveaway bags or would prefer to give back to our community in another way, we would love to hear what you have in mind. Donations big and small are welcome.
We hope you will consider being a part of this great event and highlighting your business or organization through sponsorship.
All sponsorships are due by the middle of August 2021 to ensure your donation is fully recognized. Download the sponsorship form below.
