Music...Events....Food&Wine Classic - All part of 2013 Summer Aspen/Snowmass

FOOD & WINE magazine will present its 31st Anniversary FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen to be held June 14 - 16, 2013. This is an annual weekend of cooking demonstrations, food samplings and wine tastings - all in the spectacular setting of Aspen, Colorado. You'll see some of the world's most famous chefs...including many of those we all see and love on the food network channels.  Aspen is a spectacular backdrop for all the white cooking demo and wine tasting tents that will be placed around town!

Snowmass is the place to be for FREE music. Snowmass Village and JAS (Jazz Aspen/Snowmass)have joined together since 1994 to bring us summers full of free concerts that everyone, visitors and locals alike, enjoy!

The concerts are held at the end of the Snowmass Village Mall on Snowmass Mountain. Bring a blanket or lawn chair to sit in. Food is allowed in the fenced in area. Alcoholic beverages are not allowed to be carried into the fenced in area, but beverages will be available for purchase in the fenced in area. Dogs and their owners have a designated area on the hillside above Woodrun V.
