Summer’s in Colorado’s Favorite Playground are full of hiking, biking and Music Festivals! Winter Park’s location along the Continental Divide and among the Rocky Mountains means that there is an infinite amount of activities just outside your front door.

Not only is there a different event nearly every weekend, but most of them offer free admission! The Winter Park & Fraser Chamber of Commerce puts on a community music event every week that is not only free to attend, but also allows attendees to bring their own food and booze! If you are looking for a mountain escape on a budget, Winter Park, Colorado has plenty of options for you to choose from throughout the entire Summer!

High Note Thursdays are a local’s favorite at Rendezvous Event Center at Hideaway Park every Thursday throughout the Summer. Every week is a different band and music genre, but the same fun, family-friendly, laid-back atmosphere. There are not any concessions sold at High Note Thursdays so all are welcome to bring their own libations, alcoholic beverages and snacks (no glass!). Many local restaurants offer carry-out specials to pick up on your way to the park or save some money and put together your own picnic basket. The Hideaway Park Brewery, only blocks away from the park offers growler and ‘crowler’ specials as well. For the local’s guide to High Note Thursdays check out this article.

The Solshine Music Festival and Winter Park Music Festival both bring in top acts typically in August and both offer Free admission. If you enjoy live music and dancing, these are two events not to miss this Summer! These events do offer food and drink concessions for sale at the venue.
