Local Festivals/Local Flavor

Sep 29, 2011

I love local festivals!

There is simply no better way to get a sense for a community that to attend a local celebration.  Generally, attending a festival is a free or low cost experience.

While some charge a gate admission, most are free to attend.  But be sure to have some cash on hand so you can enjoy the local tastes and flavors or show from the ever-present crafts or vendors.

You can find festivals that celebrate:

  • Music & Arts
  • Food, Wine and Beer
  • Sports & Recreation
  • History & Heritage
  • Ethnic Cultural Celebrations
  • Local Attractions

And thats just the beginning.  In Colorado, you can go to a festival in Estes Park to listen to the elk bugling.  In quirky Nederland, CO there is a celebration of a local dead guy who is somewhat cryrogenically perserved in a local icehouse.

Whatever state you live in or are traveling to, go to the state’s tourism website, where you can search by date or destination.  Here’s the site for Colorado: http://www.colorado.com/SeeEventsAndFestivals.aspx 

Go experience a festival or special event this weekend and share your experience with Empty Nester Adventures!
