The Aspen Ideas Festival is what separates Aspen from other resort towns.  This summer event brings in the best and the brightest from around the world.  It’s a local treasure!

Jazz Aspen Snowmass (spring / fall)

Talking about a party…these festivals rock!  The Labor Day Festival is the more rowdy option held at Snowmass, outdoors of course.  The June festival in Aspen is under the tent. Venues may change, but the events have become staples for tourists and locals.  Great music and great fun!

Carbondale Mountain Fair

It’s always a blast when you attend this event.  Where else can you see a lumberjack wood-splitting contest, have some beers, indulgent fair food, and lots of local arts and crafts in a beautiful mountain setting?

Benedict Music Tent on Sundays (summer)

Grab a blanket and the New York Times Sunday edition and head on over to the Music Tent around 4 pm.  There’s not a better way to chillax on a Sunday afternoon in summer than with friends, listening to classical music under the Aspen trees.

Belly Up Aspen

You won’t find a better venue to listen to big acts in the Valley.  They’ve got world famous acts in a very intimate setting (around 500 people max).  Check out the line-up when you’re in town….this place never disappoints.
