Durango Annual Events:
Durango Bluegrass Meltdown
The Durango Bluegrass Meltdown is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and preservation of bluegrass music as an American art form. Since 1995, the organization has been presenting a unique experience in Durango, the gem of Southwest Colorado.
The annual fundraising event occurs in April and features three unique, intimate main stages, a super jam, barn dance (Durango style), Saturday night Celtdown (for all you closet Celtoids!), and music flowing from bars, restaurants, coffee houses, and downtown streets and sidewalks--all within walking distance.
Music in the Mountains:
Music in the Mountains is Durango's premier three-week classic music festival. Music in the Mountains is one of the longest running classical music festivals in the southwest where a host of concerts and events are slated in venues set in southwest Colorado during the month of July. The event typically features orchestra, chamber and conservatory performances of classical and world music.
Iron Horse Bicycle Classic
The Iron Horse Bicycle Classic is a huge name in biking! Each year the race grows and always sells out months in advance. The race often sells out as early as December, meaning there are lots of bikers looking forward to Memorial day weekend in Durango!
OnTheSnow.com Resort Info: Durango Mountain Resort, known forever to locals only as "Purgatory," is a four-season resort bounded by spired peaks on three sides and high desert to the south. The Animas River bisects the town. This geographic alignment places Durango squarely in the middle of two weather systems with a track record of producing steady light snowfall followed by bluebird days. There is shuttle service from the town of Durango to the resort.
