It’s that ideal time of year when the temperatures are cooling slightly, yet summer is still glorious, peaches are plentiful and juicy, there’s music in the air and lots of festivals to take in. Wrap all of that together in Keystone Resort’s Mountain Town Music Festival, in River Run Village, August 21-22. Admission and all musical performances are free!

The Vibe:

“Last year we created the Mountain Town Music Festival to complement our lineup of incredible summer festivals and to bring top-name national acts and up-and-coming musicians to Keystone,” says Maja Russer, director of marketing and events for the Keystone Neighborhood Company, the festivals’ producer. “This year, we’re excited that we’re raising the bar again with the quality of music and food.”

The Food: 

In addition to Palisade peaches, there will also be sweet corn and melons to sample and buy. There will also be Colorado game such as elk and venison.
