Ridgway Fête de la Musique presented by Citizen’s State Bank

ABOUT
fete de la musique is a day to celebrate community, music and Summer solstice! A Plethora of Live music will be offered by local and regional musicians from all genres & ages throughout N. Ridgway. We'll have beverage stations, food trucks and the event is free to attend -- though tips for musicians are highly encouraged.

EXPERIENCE
Fete De La Musique is presented by Weehawken Creative Arts, Sherbino and Citizen's State Bank with support from Colorado Boy Pub & Brewery, Ouray County Performing Arts Guild and San Miguel Power Association and many others.

On Father’s Day, JUNE 19, 2022 (and in honor of the imminent Summer Solstice and World Music Day on June 21st) we will gather the community to play and enjoy music outside in public spaces. Like we did in 2021, our plan is for MANY MANY musicians from all genres and levels to participate in this event.

The event will again be FREE to the public and outdoors, with multiple performances happening simultaneously all over the north side of Ridgway. This year, we will be closing some streets for safety and adding some food trucks and beverage (adult and NA) concessions.

The event will run from 4-9 pm (an hour longer than 2021) and will again start centrally at Hartwell Park, then pulsate outward to the event edges (Cora St. all the way to Otto St; Clinton from Lena to Laura St. and Lena St from Charles to Otto St) and then retract back to Hartwell Park for a single community concert and finale with Birds of Play.

The public will be encouraged to WALK to the event and bring additional cash to tip the artists and consider donating to support the event.

Just like in 2021, we’ll get it ALL -- Mariachi, harpists, local bands, bluegrass, kids playing drums, electro funk, youth symphony, community chorales and more!
