Free Music in the Park Continues this July in Ridgway, Colorado!

Summer in Southwest Colorado is filled with wonder and beauty. What better way to celebrate the season than by dancing blithely at the base of the San Juans.

As the music takes you away, The majesty of the mountains and scenery create an almost surreal sense of oneness with each other.

Children run about, dancing to the tunes, and enjoying the many activities, while parents can enjoy a cold craft beer as they tap their way to the center field or sit in lawn chairs and on blankets, just soaking it all in.

The month of June brings a variety of great talent to Ouray. Fellin Park is filled with joy and music every Thursday night. But the music goes on.

The Ridgway Concert Series invites you to celebrate summer concerts for another month in a new park!
