Lots going on this month with scheduled events! However, with the weather being more than spectacular lately, anything outdoors is possible for those of you who love to get out there and do any activity from fishing, hiking, biking, and climbing, to playing tennis, taking long walks or maybe throwing the Frisbee in the park. It is game on with no excuses.
The Aspen area is looking green all over with gorgeous flowers blooming everywhere! Some days you can just look around and feel so blessed to be here and to experience this beautiful time of year.
Some of the exciting events this month start now with the Aspen Triathlon on June 9. The Ride for the Rockies which is a 6 day, 442 mile event for bikers, has the Carbondale to Leadville stage on June 12. All the riders will be passing through Aspen on their way up to the long grueling ride over Independence Pass making their way to Leadville.
The 30th annual Food and Wine Classic begins June 15 for three days. Our wonderful and expansive Farmers Market starts Saturday, June 16 and will continue every Saturday until October. Saturdays are a great day to head downtown to shop at the market, visit with the locals and purchase some fantastic Colorado vegetables, fruits, crafts and more.
Jazz Aspen starts June 22 in the Benedict Music tent, Theatre Aspen’s first production is June 25, Aspen Ideas June 27, and the famous Aspen Music Festival begins on June 28.
It is easy to get overwhelmed with so much to choose from but as you can see, there is something for everyone in Aspen. And this is just the beginning of the summer! There is much more to come in July, August and September.
Plan your visit as soon as possible so you don’t miss out on whatever your passion might be. For details on summer vacation rentals visit our Aspen Lodging page
