Great Weekend to Get Out of Town

We like to travel around Colorado during the summer months, and over the past week I’ve been mapping our family’s summer plans. This weekend there are quite a few reasons to “get out of town” including:

Teva Mountain Games in Vail runs from June 5th to the 8th. This is “The country’s largest celebration of mountain sport, soul and culture.”

The 28th Breckenridge Festival of Film runs from June 5th to the 8th. “There is no Festival like Breckenridge. A large Indie presence, Colorado Premiers of Feature Films, up-close and personal with the stars but with a warmth and intimacy all its own… even if it snows in June!!! We’ve been doing this for 27 years. We’re Good At It”. Jeffrey Lyons

Boats, Blues & Bar-B-Que in Pueblo runs from June 6th to the 7th. “The highlight of the event is a full fledged Kansas City BBQ Society sanctioned cook-off competition that is sure to please the seasoned BBQ connoisseur and first time taste tester alike!”

Chili Pepper & Beer FestivalThe Snowmass Chili Pepper & Brew Fest runs from June 6th to the 8th. “The International Chili Society holds its two chili competitions and tastings in Snowmass, while microbrewers face off in a prestigious summer ale competition with two brew sampling sessions for festival-goers, featuring 30 plus breweries. Fanny Hill rocks with hot music all weekend.”

The Telluride Jazz Festival runs from June 5th to the 8th. “Since 1977 Telluride’s majestic perch – high in the spectacular San Juan Mountains in Southwestern Colorado — has been the site of an annual cultural event produced by the Telluride Society for Jazz combining the finest of nature and art that ranks among the world’s most memorable music festivals.”

A Colorado Wines Festival in Manitou Springs is on June 7th (This is where we’ll be this weekend). “Twenty-two Colorado wineries will be pouring samples of the wines they produce. Live entertainment will be performed throughout the afternoon.”

Chili Pepper & Beer FestivalIf you can’t get out of town, don’t forget the People’s Fair is this weekend. Or check out the Denver Broncos Fan Fair at INVESCO. And on Sunday, June 8th, Hazel Miller is appearing at Hudson Gardens and Fiesta Aurora is at the Fletcher Plaza. If you’re looking for a fundraiser you can enjoy with the family, try Bring Out the Bags at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.

Gosh, I know there’s so much more out there to do that I’ve mssed! Let us know…
