From the mountainous terrain and small-town charm to the luxury and comfort that are waiting to be found in an off-the-beaten-path vacation destination, Snowmass has a way of turning first-time visitors into annual enthusiasts with ease. While a trip this way is exciting any time of year, there’s something particularly appealing about a Snowmass getaway when the 4th of July rolls around. After a year of staying home, many travelers are more than ready to make their big escape in the name of fun and an Independence Day enjoyed in the mountains promises to be an amazing choice for your 2021 adventure! While the Village of Snowmass is still working on plans for fireworks and 4th of July village-based celebrations, there are plenty of options to be enjoyed while you’re here and surrounding stops in Aspen that are just as inviting! Make the most of the following recommendations and enjoy a Snowmass 4th of July that’s sure to captivate.
Snowmass Free Concert Series
When you head to scenic Snowmass in the summer months, mountain music performances are a fan-favorite activity to enjoy and perhaps even more so over the 4th of July! Visitors who find themselves in the Snowmass/Aspen region over Independence Day are invited to make the absolute most of the Snowmass Free Concert Series on Thursdays that feature some fantastic artists and a lineup that’s sure to be unforgettable!
These outdoor concerts are hosted on Fanny Hill and provide audiences with a breathtaking mountain backdrop paired with the ultimate relaxed concert-going atmosphere! Those looking forward to enjoying the free 4th of July concert are invited to bring their favorite to-go dinners with them, but if you’re looking to keep things simple, food and drinks are also available for purchase right on-site and include everything from cocktails and beer to wine and soda.
In 2021, the only difference will be the elimination of the family fun zone as the concert series works hard to remain a safe and healthy place to enjoy Independence Day entertainment. Guests should be sure to bring a picnic blanket or lawn chair to make the event more comfortable. Transportation to and from the event is made simple with RFTA bus service running from Aspen to the Snowmass Mall as well as the village shuttle service readily available throughout Snowmass.
Fridays on the Mall
If you get into town early this 4th of July and are planning on spending the entire holiday weekend in Snowmass, be sure not to miss out on Fridays on the Mall when you’re here! Every Friday between Jun 11th and August 27th, visitors to Snowmass Village can enjoy a Friday night showcase of the area’s most fun and entertaining stops between 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm. Retailers throughout the village host exciting evening-only specials and guests will find an endless lineup of exciting happy hours to enjoy as well! A Friday on the Mall experience over the 4th of July weekend promises to be exceptionally special and fun as visitors make their way to town from near and far to celebrate! Live musical performances, kid’s activities, drink specials and even an aerial performance or two can be expected during Fridays on the Mall with plenty of Independence Day surprises planned for 2021!
Aspen 4th of July Celebration
Snowmass and Aspen are wonderfully interconnected and not difficult to move between, which makes Aspen’s 4th of July fun just as accessible as the fun waiting for visitors to Snowmass. If you’re looking to expand on the Independence Day itinerary, the Old Fashioned 4th of July Celebration hosted in Aspen this year is sure to please. Activities that define this well-loved event include everything from parades and live music to a kid’s carnival, food, entertainment, and beyond! Activities center around Durant Avenue, and when the sun goes down, visitors can settle in for a fantastic fireworks display to top off their holiday getaway experience.
