Tomorrow I will stand beside a very good friend as she ties the knot in Estes Park, Colorado. She has had a longtime love affair with the town; she and her fiance had their first date there, got engaged there and will now be married there. So I thought this was the ideal week to post an article about the town of Estes Park. As you’ll discover, I’ve had mixed
Dear HeidiTown Citizens & Tourists, It’s time for another note from the Mayor. There’s so much to tell you about it’s rather overwhelming.

This festival is partly responsible for the creation of HeidiTown as it is today because it inspired my first festival review back in 2009; prior to this blog becoming exclusively dedicated to writes ups about events, festivals and
I’m excited to tell my readers about this festival. This is not an Oktoberfest, but a celebration of German culture at a family-friendly event in Morrison, Colorado. The 15th Annual Biergarten Festival is a yearly event hosted by the German American Chamber of Commerce of Colorado (GACC-CO). The event is set up to resemble an authentic German beer garden atmosphere – the kind of place German families spend time together
Much to my delight, there’s no shortage of Celtic festivals in Colorado. With the Rocky Mountain Irish Festival more than a month away, this little festival will give you a reason to jig in July. With everything from Scottish athletics to music by some of the best area Celtic bands, the Elizabeth Celtic Festival is definitely worth checking out. Read all about it here.
There are some things that just go together – peanut butter and jelly, Ginger Rodgers and Fred Astaire and biking and beer. Now there is a Colorado company combining those last two things into a very fun outing. I first heard of My Handle Bar on Twitter, and I got rather overly excited about the whole idea. Our connection on Twitter resulted in the Mayor of HeidiTown.com and some Town
