The Mountain Town Music Festival, set for Aug. 22-23, will bring the best of Colorado’s late-summer season to Keystone Resort’s River Run Village with nationally-known bands and musical acts plus freshly harvested peaches in the fresh Rocky Mountain air.

According to event organizer Maja Russer, this will be one of the biggest music events in the mountains this month with the most impressive bands and musicians. “We felt as if there was a need and an opportunity to bring this incredible high-caliber of musical talent to the Rocky Mountains this summer,” Russer said. “Colorado is known for its love of great music and outdoor concerts. And, our state is also known for its late-summer peach harvest. We thought: ‘Why not combine the two?’ So, we created an outdoor music festival with the best national acts and then added the extra appeal of the delicious and juicy Colorado peach harvest – for a fresh new take on our summer festival schedule.”

The music is free with free admission and parking. Food and drinks are available at a la carte prices.
