The community hosts a variety of traditional events each year, including the Oatmeal Festival, Peach Festival, Wine Festival, and Lafayette Days.  Even the library houses a cultural arts area, community meeting rooms, a children area and a park.  Needless to say, adding in the recreational activities in the nearby ski resorts and Rocky Mountains, the arts, entertainment, theater, symphony, museums, festivals, and events here and in neighboring communities, residents can always find like-minded people through clubs, organizations, associations, and classes.

The thriving town was founded by Mary Miller in honor of her husband Lafayette Miller after the richest vein of coal in the Boulder Valley was discovered on the Miller Ranch.  She platted a 150-acre town in 1888 and it was incorporated in 1889.  It flourished for a half century until the demand for coal was replaced with natural gas when the town turned to agriculture.  Mrs. Miller then founded a bank and became the first woman bank president in the world.
