Featuring the band ‘Cold River City’ out of Boulder, this years Love your Valley Fest will be held on Saturday, May 21st, from 1pm to 6 pm in Ridgways Town Park.
Ridgways Annual Love Your Valley Fest is a free event, with $20.00 tickets available for beer tasting from over 20 Colorado Breweries. All proceeds from the event are to benefit the Ridgway Concert Series, free concerts in the park held every Thursday in July!
Originally created as a junction for the Rio Grande Railroad, the town of Ridgway continues to thrive as the “Gateway to the Rockies”. Once the railroad stopped running in the mid 60’s, the people of Ridgway took advantage of their location and recreated themselves as a community based around ranching and tourism.
At the base of the mountains, the Uncompaghre River flows through town, providing locals and visitors alike with a source for fishing, and a variety of water sports before flowing into the Ridgway Reservoir, with an explosion of adventures to be had!
The Love Your Valley Festival marks the beginning of the summer season, focusing on good food, great beer, and awesome music. With over 20 Breweries from all over Colorado, and live music with ‘Cold River City’, this is a perfect time to dust off the cobwebs of winter and celebrate spring.
Not only is this the 20th annual Love Your Valley Fest, this year also marks the 125th birthday of the town that so strongly supports music and art in addition to the many wonders of life in Southwest Colorado. Definitely worth the visit, this is one festival you won’t want to miss!
