The Town of Fowler, Colorado, founded in 1900, nestled in the Lower Arkansas Valley in southeastern Colorado along Highway 50 at the western edge of Otero County, is an inviting and attractive town that boasts a mix of authentic 1800’s and early 1900’s architecture with contemporary amenities. It is a “western” town of the past, present and future that boasts of friendly businesses and residents.
Fowler offers a plethora of activities that contribute to a healthy, vital, enjoyable and sustainable community. Fowler is surrounded by various agricultural productions, and offers camping, hunting and family recreation.
Fowler is home to many local businesses, as well as a few local restaurants. Located on Highway 50 and Main Street, family-owned businesses and restaurants continue to play an integral part of developing the small community lifestyle that is enjoyed by so many. The Fowler Historical Museum contains information and artifacts from Fowler’s earliest history including an original log cabin home. During the summer or fall, relax with nine holes of golf at Cottonwood Links, and in the summer, enjoy an invigorating swim at our community pool.
Beginning in July 1920, “Missouri Day” (celebrating the settlers, descendants and heritage of the early settlers in Fowler) is still celebrated today during the second week in July, with a parade, family gatherings, reunions, picnics, food, rodeo, entertainment, arts, beer garden and a dance.
In Missouri Day fashion, our small community life will really come alive during the Pedal the Plains with our Friday night dinner and dance at our community park, Gerard Park. Our local farms and ranches will provide a locally-grown and produced meal, while a regional band will provide the background for a boot-stomping good time, that includes a beer garden.
