JOHN DENVER WEEK in Aspen October 7-14! Every year since 1998, "John Denver Week" takes place in October in Aspen -- lots of events in memory of John and his music, concerts, sing alongs, hikes, campfires...a few more days left of festivities.

The Aspen Theatre presents award-winning Chris Collins and Boulder Canyon on Friday October 11 at 3:00pm. This is not a John Denver cover band, but the similarities between John and Chris's voices is undeniable. This amazing band will be singing all of the John Denver favorities we grew up listening to, and that are truly representative of the Aspen experience.
Proceeds from the Chris Collins and Boulder Canyon concert go to support the beautiful John Denver Sanctuary along the Roaring Fork River here in Aspen.
