Aspens turn to a golden hue. The sounds of elk bugles reverberate throughout the air. It's a perfect season for one of Estes Park's late-autumn traditions when a series of bands herald Autumn Gold - a Festival of Bands, Brats & Beer.
Entrance is free to dance, listen to music and enjoy the festival. The Estes Valley Sunrise Rotary will be offering mustard-smothered bratwursts, cold brews, soft drinks and more as talented local musicians and award-winning Colorado band play. Browse the vendor booths who will be offering corn on the cob, funnel cakes, fresh-squeezed lemonade, roasted almonds, and desserts.
Bring the kids! Free family activities include face painting, corn bag toss, a bounce house, and a classic car show.
One of the highlights of Autumn Gold is the NEW raffle, in which the winner will receive the grand prize of $10,000. Raffle tickets are $100 each. Contact any Sunrise Rotary club member to purchase tickets. All proceeds go to college and vocational school scholarships for promising high school graduates.
