Ridgway Creative District Healing Arts MoonWalk

From: Diedra Silbert for the Ridgway Creative District Committee

Ridgway Creative District invites you to its first Healing Arts MoonWalk on Sunday, March 19th, from 3:00 – 7:00PM. The healing arts are alive and well in Ridgway! The MoonWalk begins with a welcome ceremony at 3:00 in the Kiva Room at Chipeta Solar Springs Resort that includes the Threshold Choir, a group that sings for people at the threshold to life or death. Many forms of expression, connection and self-development can play a key role in personal health. For this MoonWalk, the healing arts were defined as creative practices that promote healing, wellness, and personal change.
Ten sites in downtown Ridgway will open for this event, including the Kiva Room at Chipeta and the Community Room at Town Hall for healing arts practitioners who are not opening their own offices. Maps will be available at the welcome ceremony or on March 15th at www.ridgwaycreativedistrict.com and www.facebook.com/RidgwayCreativeDistrict. What a great opportunity to learn more about the latest in the healing arts and get to know area practitioners. Mini-treatments, demonstrations, introductory discounts, and food and drink will be offered.

Ouray County to Host First Annual Ski Joring Event!

Posted by Maria Ziemba on Tue, Dec 27, 2016 @10:38 AM

The sport of Ski Joring is gaining popularity as a high adrenaline winter sport which involves a cowboy, a horse, and a skier. Racers and riders alike depend on the speed and capability of their entire team, as the horse races an obstacle course through the snow, pulling an expert skier who is gathering points as he navigates jums and challenges at high speed. The rider is taxed as he guides his mount in sometimes treacherous conditions to greater speed, while at the same time ensuring the safety of the hitchhiker on skis behind them.

The Ouray County Fair and Rodeo this September!

Posted by Maria Ziemba on Tue, Aug 16, 2016 @05:16 PM

Perhaps it is just nostalgia, but there is something about a County Fair and rodeo that puts a smile on my face.

Wandering from building to building at the fairgrounds, checking out livestock lovingly raised by kids in the county, the smell of hay and horses, candied apples and cowboys......The competitions are fun to watch. Everything from disciplined equine work, to the loud and rowdy tractor pull. Of course, you can't forget the amazing food or the arts and crafts show!
