Welcome to the

38th Early Iron Festival

The Early Iron Festival is one of Alamosa, CO, as well as the surrounding area’s premier events. The festival brings visitors from Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, Utah and Kansas. The show, which started some 38 years ago, now draws well over 600 rodders and street car enthusiasts.

The Early Iron Festival is a 3 day event starting on Friday and ending on Sunday. It’s full of parties, music, vintage nitro, pinstriping, slow cruising, and of course, awesome hot rod displays!

The Vintage Nitro Display and Early Iron Panel Jam is a new part of this 38 year legacy of hot rod awesomeness in Southern Colorado. Pinstriping is a craft that the Early Iron Club appreciates and honors as an integral part of hot rodding and it’s history. Alamosa is a true “Hot Rod Town” with the City Council setting aside an actual day as”Early Iron Day” on the Saturday before Labor Day!"Great show ! Can't wait for 2017. They had lots of cars and a few tents of food, perfect weather in September. We loved it!"- Chris M. - Co Springs, CO
