Elk of Estes Holiday Scavenger Hunt

The Chamber of Commerce is providing an end-to-end tour of Estes to showcase your shopping options and win cool prizes. Santa has a special partner in Estes, one of our local bull elk posing as Rudolph. He has some advice for how to fill every need on your holiday shopping list, and that's no bull (get it? bull elk? no bull?)!

Your mission is to hunt down these special messages, fill out your game card and email a picture of your game card to to be entered into the weekly raffle drawing.

The hunt begins Friday, November 27 and continues through December 20. You don't have to go inside any business to participate. (We hope you will be enticed to shop, but if COVID prevents you from going inside, we want you to join the fun!).

Two ways to play. Download and print your game card or pick one up at participating stores. Drop your completed game card at the Estes Chamber or with any participating store by Sunday night. Or you can access and submit the game card online.

Raffle prize drawings will be held on November 30, December 7, December, December 14, and December 21. Prizes are available for pickup from the Estes Chamber of Commerce.


"My family and I came up on Friday night and did your scavenger hunt and it was a blast! Thank you for a fun time!"

"Thank you so much for planning this year’s scavenger hunt. Our family lives in Estes and are part of a couple of businesses here, but it feels like we rarely have time to explore in our hometown anymore. Thank you for putting this together. It was lots of fun!"

"We did the scavenger hunt this morning with our family and had so much fun, complete with treats at two of our stops! 😊 Thank you to the chamber for coordinating such a fun game for our town!"

"We had fun pursuing the scavenger hunt and found a few businesses we didn’t know about. Thanks for the fun!"

We already had so much fun just going around town to find the sayings. Winning prizes is really icing on the cake! 🙂
