It's a tradition that began in 1935 that has truly put Delta Colorado on the map! Every July, on the third week, Deltarado Days kicks off with a Farmer Rancher Luncheon held under a canopy tent at the Delta Sales Yard. Something about barbecued hamburgers and hotdogs that always brings in a great crowd. It's not just lunch we look forward to now thanks to Altrusa and their Deltarado Days tradition of hosting an outdoor dinner at Cleland Park and just to add to the great dinner, this year Altrusa will be having a beer garden as well. Once you've filled up and the sun goes down, Grace Community Church brings out a BIG screen and we all kick back in our lawn chairs to watch an outdoor movie in the park. I'm sure you're gathering why Deltarado Days is such a landmark event.
Friday is filled with the chatter among the town about what sales are going on where to celebrate Deltarado Days. Once the stores begin to close, people start to gather at 4th Street between Main St and Meeker St for Street Dance and Beer Garden. There's always a good time when there are live bands, and Friday night there are 2 different ones to enjoy
As traditions go, there's always more to the tale. Among the events the Delta Area Chamber of Commerce names the Grand Marshall and the King and Queen of Deltarado Days which started in the 1950's. It's just one of the many ways that the Chamber does it's best to give back and provide to its community.
