Dillon Amphitheater Summer Concerts
The Dillon Amphitheater boasts some of the best views in the state and gives unprecedented access with its intimate scale and casual atmosphere. It’s one of the most stunning venues in the Rockies to see a show and sometimes the talent is legendary: Bob Dylan performed last year.
This year, catch the Infamous Stringdusters and Gregory Alan Isakof, plus many more outstanding performances, some of which are free.

51st Annual RockyGrass Festival
Put on by the same group that brings us Telluride Bluegrass but in a more accessible, convenient, family-friendly location in Lyons, any “festivarian” or bluegrass fan has to put this one on their bucket list.

Rocky Mountain Folks Festival
Can’t make it to RockyGrass, or looking for something even more laid back? Then pull up a folding rocker creekside (at the Planet Bluegrass/RockyGrass headquarter grounds) along the beautiful bu s and lazy river above Lyons and take in an incredible folksy lineup, including Leyla McCalla, Shovels and Rope, Charlie Crockett, Katie Pruitt, and plenty of jam sessions and clinics to boot. — AB
