The haunting call of the bull elk fills the Estes Valley during the early days of fall. The call begins with deep, resonant tones that rise rapidly to a high-pitched squeal before dropping to a series of grunts. Show your colors!
What is this strange sound and what does it mean?
To celebrate the annual elk rut and learn about the “wapiti,” the Native American name for elk, Estes Park hosts the Annual Elk Fest October in Bond Park and the surrounding area. The festival is free but for fees for the elk bugling contest and elk viewing bus tours.
The festival features bugling contests, educational areas, exhibits, the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program, elk seminars, a Mountain Man Rendezvous, Native American music, dancing and storytelling and elk-viewing bus tours. The aptly named music group Elk Tones will perform on Saturday.
