HeidiTown Fest- Ouray

Heidi’s Unite! If you want to go about like the light-footed goats of Colorado’s MTN Towns then this brand new festival is for you; slated to take place in Ouray, Colorado over Memorial Day weekend, May 23-24, 2015. HeidiTown Fest, brought to life by Heidi Kerr-Schlaefer of HeidiTown.com, is a festival celebrating Colorado, as well as gals named Heidi.

HeidiTown.com is a blog about Colorado festivals and travel. It is not a calendar of events, but rather “stuff the Mayor likes.” Heidi Kerr-Schlaefer is the founder/Mayor of HeidiTown and she loves small town festivals and unique events.

Kerr-Schlaefer, who resides in Loveland, Colorado, was recently called a “one-woman tourism-promotion machine” by Biz West.

“My readers and social media followers are always telling me that they live vicariously through my HeidiTown travels around Colorado,” said Kerr-Schlaefer. “HeidiTown Fest was an opportunity for my readers, the couch potatoes and the adventurers, to live like the Mayor for a weekend.”


There are two HeidiTown Fest Packages available. Guest can choose between two hotels, the Ouray Chalet Inn or the Matterhorn Inn, and two excursions including a four-wheel drive excursion with Alpine Scenic Tours or a rafting trip with RIGS Adventure Company. Each package also comes with passes to the Ouray Hot Springs Pool and tickets to the HeidiTown Fest VIP party on Saturday night.

Package start at $280 for 2 people and a third night stay can be added for just $80, plus hotel tax.

“Ouray is thrilled to be the location for the first annual HeidiTown Fest. Nicknamed ‘The Switzerland of America,’ we are the perfect Colorado mountain location for unique gatherings and festivals,” said Heidi Pankow, public relations manager at the Ouray Chamber Resort Association.

“Heidi Kerr-Schlaefer has become an important and influential ambassador, sharing Ouray’s special offerings, from ice climbing to jeep tours and our local lodging, dining and cultural events. We look forward to sharing our city with her HeidiTown.com citizens and fans,” added Pankow.

Ouray was chosen as the site of the inaugural HeidiTown Fest because Kerr-Schlaefer loves the town and because there are an inordinate number of gals named Heidi already living there. In fact, while all package purchasers will be VIPs, any gal named Heidi who attends HeidiTown Fest will be a VVIP, very, very important person.


“We will have a special little something waiting for them at the Ouray Visitor Center when they get to town,” said Kerr-Schlaefer. “Heidis are extra special at HeidiTown Fest.”

HeidiTown Fest is schedule for May 23-24, 2015 and will take place at various venues around Ouray.

“At some point we’d like to make this an event that rotates around small towns in Colorado,” said Kerr-Schlaefer. “For now, I’m excited to see what we can pull off this year in Ouray. Everyone has been very supportive, so I have high hopes for a successful fest.”
