The Ridgway Concert Series is held every Thursday in July, from 6 till dark, in Town Park, and it’s FREE to attend. For 2016 we’re back to the four-Thursday lineup: July 7th, 14th, 21st and the 28th! There will be eight fantastic bands presented over the course of four Thursday evenings in July. The entire series is free to the public. Events are family-friendly and include a popular children’s activity area for the little ones, chock full of costumes and games to play. Come early and take in the breathtaking views, mountain bike the local trails, soak at the hot springs or play in the river. Expect an evening of fun, engaging and trend-setting music and of course, lots of dancing. Several food vendors will be on hand, cooking up a diverse selection of locally prepared meals. In addition to serving local micro-brews, wine and margaritas are also available. The audience is welcome to bring lawn chairs, blankets, coolers and picnics. Please note, no glass or outside alcohol is allowed in the park. The Ridgway Concert Series is presented by the Town of Ridgway and funded entirely by community sponsors, fundraisers and donations. The on-site alcohol and merchandise sales also help fund the series. Shows begins at 6pm and run well into the evening, with over three hours of live music.
After-Shows @ The Sherbino Theater: Each night starting at 9:45pm (directly after the concert in the park) the opening act will play a full show at the Sherbino Theater, just two blocks from the main stage. This is the place to be (and be seen) after the show!
Radio Broadcast: All four Ridgway concerts will be broadcast live on KVNF Community Radio (90.9, 89.1, 88.9 FM) beginning at 7pm, and will stream live on the web at www.kvnf.org.
This year’s Love Your Valley Festival will be held on Saturday, May 21st, 1 to 6 pm in Town Park. The band is great, Cold River City out of Boulder. This years celebration will include 20 breweries for the tasting portion of the event – and we will also be celebrating the Town of Ridgway’s 125th birthday! This is a free event, though micro-brew tasting is $20 – and all the proceeds go to fund the free Ridgway Concert Series.
