11th Annual Free Summer Concert Series Band Line-Up

The 2018 Ridgway Concert Series begins this year on July 5th and continues each Thursday through July 26thThe series is free to the public and features a wonderfully curated mix of eight bands over four nights. The events are family friendly and include a children’s activities area to keep the kids entertained, while the parents dance and mingle with new and old friends.

Expect spectacular views of the San Juan and Cimarron Mountains, stellar music, and lots of dancing. Delicious food and regionally brewed beer and other libations will be available. The audience is welcome to bring (short backed) lawn chairs, blankets, coolers and picnics. Please note, no glass or outside alcohol & no dogs are allowed in the park. The Ridgway Concert Series is presented by the Town of Ridgway in conjunction with Pickin’ Productions and is funded entirely by community sponsors, fundraisers and donations. The on-site beer sales benefit a local not-for-profit.

Radio: All four concerts will be broadcast live on KVNF Community Radio (90.9, 89.1 FM) and will be streaming live on the web at www.kvnf.org.
