Governor Jared Polis invites all Coloradans to safely celebrate Colorado Day, tomorrow August 1, celebrating our admittance in 1876 to the United States of America as the Centennial state.

His message to all Coloradans:

“Happy Birthday, Colorado! The past year has been challenging but as a state, we have remained resilient. There’s so much to celebrate in Colorado, from more than 70 percent of Coloradans rolling up their sleeves to get the safe and effective vaccine, to our economy roaring back even stronger from this pandemic. I encourage everyone to celebrate Colorado Day responsibly, whether that’s by visiting one of the 42 beautiful state parks completely free on August 2nd, by visiting a local small business, or taking a moment to pause and reflect. Our state has it all, and I encourage every Coloradan to get out there and enjoy it.”
