Music In The Mountains

Summer 2019 Music Events in Colorado Mountain Towns

Summer means outdoor fun in Colorado’s mountain towns including the launch of great Colorado Summer Music Festivals and Events that you will want to Save the Date and plan for in our mountain towns. We have a round up on some of the best around.

Campout for the Cause

Get ready for a celebration of music and tribe in the heart of Buena Vista, come celebrate eleven years of Campout for the Cause set in the stunning Meadows in Buena Vista May 31st – 2nd, 2019. Only minutes from downtown Buena Vista, The Meadows is a picturesque site of cottonwood trees, hay meadows and babbling brooks, with the breathtaking, snow-capped, Collegiate Peaks set as the backdrop.

At Campout, the mind and soul are as important as the music. There will be a secondary area devoted to classes, workshops, and a kids zone. There is also a small pond, a short walk down the road, dedicated to improving paddleboard skills and SUP yoga.

Included in admission is  a variety of workshops that encourage patrons to connect in an inspired setting: yoga, movement, sustainability, songwriting workshops, dance, social activism and workshops for children. Campout also offers as many yoga stars to learn from as musical stars including Campout veteran yogis like Gina Caputo, Julia Clarke, Kim Fuller, Bobby L’Hereaux and Heath Perry. These classes and workshops invigorate the body and soul leaving the spirit wide open for the evening music.

iBar Ranch – Gunnison

The I Bar is an authentic western heritage event center that seats up to 515.  It is situated on a 10 acre converted hay meadow, 250 ft off of the Tomichi Creek at the base of ‘W’ Mountain in beautiful Gunnison, CO.  The Colorado DOW operates the buffer of land between our venue and Tomichi Creek and offers access to amazing fly fishing and equestrian/hiking opportunities.

The I Bar is situated 1.5 miles southeast of downtown Gunnison behind Jorgenson Park and the Pioneer Museum.  Its unique setting is what makes it very special; just on the edge of town, but deep into the quiet spaces of agriculture and recreation.

The venue is a converted hay barn with stage, lighting & sound.  While the sides are open to provide fresh air and scenery, there are curtains that can be closed for inclement weather.  The venue is in operation from May-October for community orientated events and music you won’t want to miss.
