Posted by: admin August 2nd, 2016
August in Summit County is a true celebration of summer and all things Colorado. There are dozens of local events and activities taking place every day in the County this month, and we put together a list of the most anticipated not-to-be-missed celebrations. Our Downtown Frisco Bed & Breakfast is located only minutes from all this month’s excitement, so make sure to book with us for exclusive access!
Keystone Bluegrass & Beer Festival - August 4-6
Head to Keystone this Thursday for a weekend filled with home cooking, mountain bluegrass music and craft beer galore! This fun, folky festival features over 40 Colorado craft breweries, ensuring you’ll enjoy the music even if Bluegrass isn’t really your thing.
Dillon Open Regatta – August 5-7
You may have been to a Regatta before, but we doubt you’ve been to the world’s highest regatta! At 9,017 ft. above sea level, this is one event you’ll want to attend this weekend. And, if you’re an avid sailor, there’s still time to register! Racing will take place on Lake Dillon in Dillon. Head to the Dillon Marina and grab a good seat.
Late Night, Date Night, Create Night – Every Friday
If you’re looking to get the creative juices flowing next time you hit the bars, stop by Ready Paint Fire! on Main St. in Breckenridge this Friday with your significant other (or any “other”) and enjoy adult arts & crafts while you indulge in a few drinks during an all night happy hour!
Next Page Living Room Concert Series – August 3, 5, 10, 12, 17 & 19
What’s better than perusing brand new books while partaking in happy hour, good food and the live styling’s of varying local artists? The Next Page Living Room Concert Series is a great location for a subtle date night in Downtown Frisco.
Genuine Jazz & Wine Festival – August 19, 20 & 21
With so many beer fests in Summit County, this is your chance to class things up a little bit with some smooth, fusion and mainstream jazz, while warming up with a fancy wine tasting. You can also partake in a few dining events during the weekend for a very Instagramable brunch and gourmet grab and go appetizers you’ll definitely never get around to making on your own. Head to Copper Mountain on Friday, August 19!
Craft Beer Relay – August 20th
What is the one thing all those obstacle course marathon races lack? Let’s be honest – beer. Welcome to the only 5k with 12 beer stations throughout the course. Get your four person team together and conquer this Copper Mountain course filled with relays, live music, food, prizes and your favorite Colorado craft beer!
Keystone’s Mountain Town Music Festival – August 20th

With more than 75 craft cider and beers to sample, this event lives up to its name.
