Bring in the Fall Season With Frisco’s Fall Fest
Posted by: admin September 3rd, 2015
For a single mid-September day Frisco transforms into a spectacle of all that signifies the Fall season in the Rocky Mountains with the Town of Frisco’s Fall Fest, Saturday, September 12th. A combination of an environmental movement mixed with music, food and fun, this year’s Fall Fest is free to attend from 10am to 6pm at the Frisco Bay Marina.
In what originally started as “Beetle Fest” in 2008 as a way to educate the community on the damaging effect mountain pine beetles have had on the region’s forests and wilderness areas, Fall Fest is has now grown into a full blown day of activities and fun for the entire family to enjoy. The festival celebrates the sights, sounds and flavors of Colorado with a Meet the Artists show and sale, live music and a Flavors of Frisco food tasting event. New for this year, all events will be consolidated to the Frisco Bay Marina so that adults can imbibe on beverages from the beer and margarita gardens while keeping on eye on the kids at the “make and take art project,” face painting an other children’s activities. Add in a free concert with Colorado’s funk sensation, Funkiphino, from 4-6pm to round things out and it all sounds like a perfect fall day in Frisco.
Meet the Artist (Saturday & Sunday)
On Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 5pm, Colorado artisans will be on hand to show and sell items such as pottery, jewelry, paintings, metal work, photography and other home-grown fine arts. In keeping with the original theme of Fall Fest, Saturday’s events will also include furniture makers displaying and selling furniture from beetle kill wood.
Flavors of Frisco (Saturday)
The highlight of this year’s event, the Flavors of Frisco highlights Frisco’s energetic restaurant scene as visitors enjoy samples of signature dishes from restaurant establishments in Frisco. You will want to be sure to wash down all the goodies with a brew from Frisco’s own Backcountry Brewery in the beer garden or a margarita from Colorado’s own Coyote Gold.
With all of the aforementioned stuff going on it could be really easy to forget to take in the beauty of the Frisco Bay and all of the recreational activities it affords you. Just enjoy Fall in the Colorado high country!
