De Beque Wild Horse Days: The first Wild Horse Days started in 1999. A group of De Beque residents formed a Non-profit organization/Council which consisted of a President, Secretary and board. This Council was started to aid and help the Wild Horses in the Little Bookcliffs Wild Horse Area. It was a yearly summer event. The Wild Horse Council purchased a mustang yearly from BLM for WHD. The horse was then entered into a drawing for ownership. They brought in vendors, live music, food, kids games, as well as events for adults. In 2013 the Wild Horse Committee dissolved.
Scott Elliot 4th of July Celebration: In 2015 the De Beque Recreation Department was in the process of creating a special 4th of July event with Fireworks, Potluck BBQ, Vendors, Kids Games, Live Music and more. Scott Elliot at the time was a Board Trustee for the Town of De Beque. Many discussions of fireworks were held between Scott and the Recreation Department. Scott kindly and willingly volunteered to speak to Kush Gardens about getting a donation for fireworks to take some of the work load off of the Directors shoulders.
