Free Music in Estes Park 2016

After a busy day exploring Rocky Mountain National Park, there is no better way to relax than by listening to music at one of Estes Park’s many outdoor venues. There is free music nearly every evening of the week so bring a chair or grab a blanket and stake out a grassy spot.

Stop by Bond Park on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. and listen to Cowboy Brad’s original acoustic folk, family and western music. Raised in Estes Park, Brad has played professionally since he was 15 years old and specializes in John Denver tunes. If you’re lucky Cowboy Brad will play Rocky Mountain High.

The Estes Arts District supports a summer long series of concerts every Tuesday evening through August 23rd at the Performance Park outdoor amphitheater. Bring a picnic and enjoy a free musical evening featuring local talent. Performances start at 7 p.m.

The Cultural Arts Council presents live jazz, American folk and contemporary music every Wednesday and Thursday evening through August 25 at Performance Park. Among the artists are Steve Smersh & Friends, the Estes Park Jazz Big Band, David Michael Boyd, Peggy Mann, the Highland Brass Quintet, and the Riverside Ramblers.

For a more intimate setting, drop by Barlow Plaza along the Big Thompson River on Friday and Saturday from 5:30-7:30 and listen to a variety of acoustic and folk performers. Artists include Elk Hollow, Richard Geppinger, Branden Sipes and Ron Ball.

On Saturday, July 23, Snowy Peaks Winery is sponsoring the SnowyGrass Bluegrass Festival from 1-5 p.m. in Baldwin Park. Kick back, enjoy a glass of wine and listen to local favorites Ran Off the Rooster, Reintarnation and Follow the Fox.
