Music is in the air this year in Winter Park, Colorado. The big festivals are back and there is a smattering of some new events to make this a great year up here in Rockies. There will be jazz, blues, rock and country festivals through the season at the Hideaway Park venue in downtown Winter Park, CO.
The Winter Park Jazz Festival – A Colorado tradition for over 20 years and it just keeps on getting stronger. This year featuring Chaka Khan and Norman Browns Summer Storm. The Jazz Festival is the premier summer jazz fest in the Rocky Mountain region.
Blues From The Top Music Festival – From the Grand County Blues Society this is one rockin’ show that blues lovers do not want to miss. Tis’ is a full weekend of music with a Friday night show at Smokin’ Moe’s to get the party started right.
The Fox Classic Rock Music Festival – Featuring that ‘80’s hit producing machine Night Ranger, tell me you don’t remember the high school classic Sister Christian. Come out for a day of Music, Food, Beer Pavilion, Vendors and Fun. 103.5 The Fox brings a GREAT line up of music and fun. Gates and Vendors open at 10 am for this FREE EVENT! Yes it is free, not something you hear very often when it comes to live music! Show is 8/7/2010 from noon to 6PM. Contact winter Park Lodging Company for your tickets.
KYGO High Country Music Festival – Another free festival featuring Chris Cagle, The Josh Abbott Band and Kory Brunson. No editorializing here as I’m not a Country Music aficionado. I bet though it would be a great time and a lot cheaper than the $300.00 U2 is getting for their Denver show this summer.
There is also the season long High Note Thursday free shows in Hideaway Park. Artists have not been released yet. Also there is the season ling Fraser Picnic In The Park Series with Denver and local artists.
We have a lot of music going on up here in winter Park, CO along with great weather and more outdoor activities than you could name.
Come have a great summer time in Winter Park, Colorado.
