The town of Rocky Ford began in 1871 by G.W. Swink and Asa Russell. It earned its name when Kit Carson came to a shallow crossing in the Arkansas River.
Known as the Melon Capitol, melons have always been a staple of Rocky Ford. In 1878, G.W. established the tradition of Watermelon Day. A tradition that still goes strong every summer during the Arkansas Valley Fair, which is the oldest continuous fair in the state.
With over 300 days of sunshine a year, you can get outside and play a round of golf, enjoy picnics or take advantage of the playground and fitness trail at Play Park Hill, cool off at the public swimming pool and enjoy baseball at Babcock Park. You can also enjoy the Rocky Ford Balloon Festival and annual Rocky Mountain Mennonite Relief Sale in the fall.
Rocky Ford also has a movie theater, public library and museum.
