June In Aspen

Summer has arrived early in Aspen as weeks of warm temperatures and sunny skies have quickly melted the winter snowpack. June is an exceptional time to visit Aspen, especially with the weather we've been having this Spring! There are many great events taking place this June including Chili and Brew Fest, The Food and Wine Classic, and the start to the Aspen Music Festival and School’s concert season, just to name a few. At this time, we would like to profile The Chili and Brew Fest since it’s just around the corner! Chili and Brew Fest is set to take place on the weekend of June 8-9. Chili and Brew Fest is a celebration of Chili, Micro Brewed beer, and Music. This event is great for people of all ages. Though due to the fact that food will be served, festival goers are asked to leave their four-legged friends at home. Contestants from all over the country (in addition to some local hopefuls) are set to compete in a chili cook-off in both a green and red chili category, as well as a salsa category. In the same spirit of friendly competition, 30 brewers are set to compete in a summer ale competition, in addition to showcasing some of their other offerings. Festival goers are of course encouraged to sample the goods while they take in the beautiful scenery and live music. The music lineup for Friday consists of Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars at 4:30 P.M followed by The Congress at 6:00 P.M. For Saturday’s event, Galactic is set to take the stage at 1:00 P.M. followed by Gogol Bordello at 6:00 P.M. For further information, please visit . We have some great early booking specials in effect for both June and the summer as a whole.
