Trapper Days

Be sure to mark your calendars for the annual Trapper Days celebration!  From the Yellow Ball Classic Golf Tournament to the parade, vendor booths, pancake breakfast, the duck race and everything in between, this is a great weekend to spend enjoying the town with friends and family.  So much planning goes into Trapper Days to make it fun for everyone!  There will be many things to do.  Be sure to visit all the booths along Denver Avenue, following the parade.  Street dances, the bike & car show or visiting the Fort and much more will round out your weekend of fun.  Be sure to make plans now to join in the festivities!


Trapper Days Schedule of Events

FLHS Homecoming & Chili Supper
You are invited to come out and support the Booster Club and the FLHS Football Team on Friday, September 12th.  This year the Homecoming Theme is "Fort Lupton High School Through the Decades".  There are many FLHS Alumni that are still here in Fort Lupton and we hope they can come out and celebrate the Bluedevils at the Parade, Chili Supper and the Football Game at 7:30.  The Chili Supper is one of the Booster Clubs Fundraisers to help sponsor scholarships to Senior Bluedevils and provide help to clubs, athletic programs and extracurricular events at FLHS.

New & Improved Chamber Website
The chamber has been working hard on improving our website to make it work better for our members and residents of Fort Lupton to find local businesses and see what's going on around town.  On the MEMBERS tab we have added a link to your business listing (please take a minute to verify the link is correct or if you don't have a link please send us your website address and we will be glad to add it to your business listing). The newest tab is the JOB LISTINGS tab.  If you are hiring please email the chamber a brief description and contact info and we will be glad to add it to our site.

Chamber Seeking Door Prizes
Everyone loves door prizes! If you have one or two items that you think would be suitable for our monthly luncheons, please drop them by the Chamber Office or bring them with you to the luncheon.  Be sure to let us know ahead of time if you have door prizes so we can be sure to add your company logo to the PowerPoint presentation at the luncheon. Thank you!
