Ouray Colorado Vacation Guide and Trip Planning Information for SW Colorado
Ouray, CO, July 24, 2017: The Ouray County Performing Arts Guild proudly presents the 16th annual San Juan Chamber MusicFest, taking place Aug. 17-22.
The festival – OCPAG’s flagship event – features four exceptional guest musicians, under the artistic direction of concert pianist Max Levinson, producing five concerts in Ridgway, Ouray and Montrose, Colo.
There is something about the dramatic beauty of Ouray that draws the artist (no pun intended). As if the natural springs, free from the smell of sulfur, radiate creativity, luring talented hands to interpret.
Canyoning is one of the most interesting sports to be gaining popularity in the area.
Spring is in the air, and everyone is ready to be outside enjoying some sunshine.
The world begins to wake from its winter nap, new leaves are bursting from the aspens, and the fields are dotted with baby calves, there is a sense of lightness and renewal in the air. The Ouray City Pool is in it's final stages, and May looks to be an awesome month for visitors and locals alike! April has been absolutely beautiful, with just the right amount of showers as the days get longer and the sun shines more warmly.
Focusing on plays that open minds to different mindsets, with energetic interactions and intelligent scripts, UpStart works to develop a connection in the community through theater. This April, TheWright Opera House is pleased to welcome an UpStart presentation of Jericho, a witty, hard hitting drama written by New York City playwright Jack Canfora. Jericho is Mr. Canfora's third play, praised by the New York Times and the Star Tribune during its off Broadway run.
A CHRISTMAS TRADITION IN OURAY FOR OVER 80 YEARS!
The Ouray Elks Lodge works all year, holding special events, BBQ's and meetings, raising money for the community. The funds these hardy volunteers raise are used to help pay medical expenses for some, scholarships to deserving students, and FUN! Perhaps one of the most touching events is when Santa comes to town. Elk members hold a special potluck dinner a week or so before Christmas, to help out Santa and his elves by stuffing dozens upon dozens of stockings. On Christmas Eve, several members of the club offer their services even further to St. Nick by becoming honorary elves for the evening, driving him to and fro, across Ouray County in all types of weather, to help him deliver gifts and good cheer.
