26th Annual Brewers Rendezvous, Salida
Brought to you by the Colorado Brewers Guild (CBG) and the Salida Chamber of Commerce, the 26th Annual Colorado Brewers Rendezvous will take place on Saturday, July 9th, in historic Salida, CO, against a backdrop of beautiful views of the Collegiate Peaks and the Arkansas River. Coming back for its fourth year, the Brewers Rendezvous Pre-Vous, an intimate gathering featuring light food and select breweries pouring exclusive beers not available at the Brewers Rendezvous, will occur the night before on July 8th at the historic Salida Steam Plant Theater.
Rooted in camaraderie and tradition, the Colorado Brewers Rendezvous is unlike any other craft beer fest stemming from the Colorado Brewers Guild’s desire to find a place for brewers to gather and conduct their annual meeting. Because many brewers were already attending the Salida Beer Festival in 1995, Salida became the impromptu meeting grounds for their membership meeting. Since then, the Brewers Rendezvous has been a cherished craft beer festival and fundraiser for both the CBG and Salida Chamber of Commerce for 26 years.

Race The Sun, Winter Park
Winter Park Sunrise to Sunset capitalizes on two well-established strengths: the Sunrise to Sunset model and Winter Park’s deep mountain-bike roots. Luscious singletrack trails crisscross the mountains of Winter Park. How good are they, you ask? Good enough that USA Cycling is hosting the National Championships on the Winter Park trails once again for a third year in 2022.
Ideal for a 12-hour relay format, the section of trails used in Sunrise to Sunset are just above town, making access and relaxation between laps super easy. Winter Park Sunrise to Sunset will be held in conjunction with Crooked Gravel, so at day’s end racers of both persuasions will be partying together at the bandshell and surrounding park.
The 12-hour format is all about balancing camaraderie and challenge. Sure, some folks race it solo, but most choose to race in teams, from two-person up to five-person squads. As one teammate is out on course, banging out a 8-mile hot lap, the others are kicking back at camp, enjoying the festival atmosphere in the cool, high-mountain air.
While some events cater specifically to beginners or experts, Sunrise to Sunset offers fun for all; the level of challenge is self-selected by how fast you go!

Grand County Grind, Winter Park
