The 4th of July fireworks is always the pinnacle to the Range Call festival. It’s one of the Western Slope’s top fireworks show. There’s also the fan-favorite parade down Main Street. It’s free to enter! The Meeker Historical Society even provides free root beer floats during Range Call.
Meeker is known to have one of the best fireworks displays on the western slope. Our 4th of July parade is always a highlight of Range Call and is accompanied by other smaller local events such as a pancake breakfast, 5k run, and root beer floats provided by the Meeker Historical Society. On the last day of the festival witness the Meeker Bank Robbery. Locals reenact this famous failed bank robbery from 1896.
