With a name like Winter Park, one would think that Winter Park, CO only provides visitors with things to do during the winter months. While there are lots of fun winter activities to partake in, Winter Park also hosts a variety of things to do for visitors during the summer. Along with its gorgeous scenery, there are also various art and culture events happening.  Here are a few of the summer arts and culture events going on near Winter Park, CO.

Rocky Mountain Repertory Theater

Located just outside Winter Park in Grand Lake, the Rocky Mountain Repertory Theater is a local theater company that puts on professional, award-winning Broadway productions. Their lineup for summer 2018 includes musical theater classics like Annie, The Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, and The Full Monty. With shows almost every evening throughout the summer, theater lovers of all ages will find something to enjoy.

High Note Thursdays

Every Thursday evening during the summer, the High Note Thursdays music series offers free concerts in Hideaway Park. The series hosts a wide variety of different bands, with acts ranging from a Pink Floyd cover band to bluegrass and soul, including many performers from around Colorado. Admission is free, and it’s perfect for happy hour or a picnic dinner. See their website for their full schedule.

Cozens Ranch Museum

Winter Park and Grand County used to be in the heart of the Wild West, and a lot of that history can still be witnessed during the summer at the Cozens Ranch Museum in the Fraser Valley. Just down Highway 40 from Winter Park, this museum is housed in an old stagecoach stop and exhibits artifacts and photographs from Winter Park’s early days. Plus, during the summer, the museum hosts the Grand County Storyteller Series, where members of the community can share their stories about topics like family and “American Adventures.”

Alpine Art Affair

Winter Park’s annual arts and crafts fair, the Alpine Art Affair, gives local artists a chance to showcase their work. Admission is free for this outdoor event, which features not only great art but also food and live music. Best of all, proceeds go towards funding arts scholarships for Grand County students.
