The Burro Days festival is held on the last weekend of July. The event celebrates the town's mining heritage. The main feature of the festival is a 29-mile burro race over rough terrain and approximately 3,000-ft elevation gain from downtown Fairplay to the 13,000-ft summit of Mosquito Pass. Teams consist of one person and one burro. The race takes about five hours to complete; first prize is $1,000. Previously, the first prize included an ounce of gold. There are several other burro races in Colorado, the most notable takes place in Leadville.

The Fairplay event is the World Championship of Burro Racing, an ultra-marathonand the longest burro race in the state. For many years (in the 1960s and early 1970s) the Burro race took place from Leadville to Fairplay, or vice versa, crossing over Mosquito Pass. This followed the route that Father John Lewis Dyer of the Methodist Episcopal Church used for circuit riding and for carrying mail. With time, the rivalry between the two cities ended this cooperative endeavor.

The 64th burro race, held in Fairplay on July 28–29, 2012, despite rain attracted a record crowd of more than ten thousand persons. Llama races are held on the Saturday prior to the Sunday burro run. Burro Days is the major fundraiser for area schools. The 2012 winner of the 29.5-mile long course is George Zack of  Broomfield, Colorado, with his burro "Jack." The 2011 winner of the long course, Karen Thorpe of Durango, won the 2012 short course of 14.5 miles. There were fifty-seven entries in the burro contests in 2012
