At Roaring Fork Events we love to give back to our community. This year we are giving back to a great, local nonprofit. A portion of each ticket sold will go toward this fantastic group!
The Glenwood Springs Historical Society tells the stories of the history of Glenwood Springs and Garfield County with permanent and rotating exhibits, outreach programs and guided tours of historic downtown and Linwood Cemetery. You won’t want to miss the Ghost Walk, held at night the last three weekends in October. Guided tours lead you through Glenwood’s oldest cemetery where costumed actors portray Doc Holliday, Kid Curry and other Glenwood Springs pioneers. Tours sell out, so purchase tickets early.
Thank You 2018 Sponsors!
Without the support of our generous sponsors, this event would not be possible.
