Description
The first Street Breakfast dates back to 1936 when about 35 people got together and were
served from a chuckwagon in front of Joe Reich’s Swiss Chalet. When the Pikes Peak
Range Riders made their first ride in 1949, they were looking for a place to start their ride
the next year and the Street Breakfast seemed like a perfect venue. During those days,
$1.00 got you a breakfast of eggs and pancakes. And today you get the same breakfast for
just $5.00, which is a pretty good deal! Tradition is that a souvenir wooden token
commemorating the event is included in the cost of the breakfast.
In the 1950s, the Jaycees operated the Street Breakfast as a community event, and in
1960, Sertoma took over the operation. Starting in 2016, The Pikes Peak Range Riders
became the host of the breakfast and continue to host the event to this day.
Breakfast includes pancakes, syrup, scrambled eggs, orange juice and coffee. Cooking and
serving at the Street Breakfast for over 40 years have been volunteers from Fort Carson.
Starting in 2019, US Air Force volunteers joined the Fort Carson volunteers. Fort Carson
Mounted Color Guard presents the United States and Colorado flags in front of the stage
while the crowd removes their cowboy hats and sings the National Anthem.

Entertainment
There will be live music provided by Exit West and the Flying W Wranglers. In addition,
there will be a Trick Roper with roping lessons, Native American Dancers and musical
performances by the students of The Colorado Springs Conservatory.
The Flying W Wranglers have been a part of our western heritage for over 60 years, making
them the world’s second oldest western singing group. They have performed at the Street
Breakfast for many years, singing songs about cowboy life on the trail delivered in the
“wrangler style.”
The Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo Girls of the West and the El Paso County Fair Queen will
be there to present on stage and greet the crowd.
