Summer Scene


Filling a calendar with all the great things to do in a Colorado summer is a pretty rewarding task. After all, how else would BW staffers get to find out about all the fantastic events, concerts and festivals going on this year? And we’re not just talking about the things happening locally. In this calendar, we went out and found just about every interesting thing going on between Memorial Day and Labor Day in every nook and cranny of the Centennial State.

The wealth of opportunities for fun over the next few months borders on obscene. There are more music festivals in more beautiful places than you can imagine — from the Western Slope to Pagosa Springs to Greeley to Steamboat. And that doesn’t count the hundreds of great concerts that will be happening this summer right here on the Front Range.

But music is just one tiny part of this year’s fun. There are countless arts and crafts shows, automobile and aviation exhibits, museums and natural attractions.

So pack up that cooler, tell the neighbor to watch your dog, hire a kid with a lawnmower, tell your boss you’re sick and hit the road.

All we’re saying is that If you’re bored this summer, it’s definitely your own fault.

We do hope you enjoy our lists of things to do and our suggestions as much as we enjoyed putting them together for you.
