Saturday, May 19, 2012, spend a day in Southwest Colorado with family, friends and frivolity!
Love Your Valley Music and Brew Festival, 2012
Every summer, the city of Ridgway hosts free concerts in the park on Thursdays with family friendly music performed by a variety of talented and well known artists. The music genre leans in the Americana roots direction, with acts playing bluegrass, folk, funk, swing, country, alt-country, jazz and their own combination of those styles. Booths are open throughout the park, offering a variety of snacks and microbrews, as well as the offerings of local shops.
To fund these free events, Ridgway holds a couple of events, the first of which this year being the "Love Your Valley Fest". The event itself is free, with live music performed by Shed, a variety of activities sure to please adults, children, and dogs, and a number of microbreweries on site offering a sampling of their most popular brews!
For only $20.00 per person, those over 21 can try brews from regional breweries such as Steamorkws, Telluride Brewery, Silverton, Ouray, New Belgium, Ska, Colorado Boy and the list goes on! And don't forget the ROCC Parking Lot Sale in the Ridgway Community Center Parking Lot right next to the Park! Booths of local treasures and trades will be lined up for you to shop till you drop! Sale runs from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.
The Love Your Valley Fest runs from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Saturday, May 19, 2012, giving everyone plenty of time to sample and enjoy everything this fabulous festival has to offer!
