HeidiTown is annexing parts of Utah, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and New Mexico.

“This was inevitable,” says Kerr-Schlaefer. “I’ve been covering Colorado festivals and destinations for more than seven years. I believe it’s the right time to branch out into other states.”
The Mayor went on to say that HeidiTown’s focus will continue to be on festivals and road trips.
“If you can’t get to a destination by car within a day from the Denver area, it won’t be included,” says Kerr-Schlaefer.
Over the last seven years, HeidiTown has helped festivals grow, including the Annual Biergarten Festival in Morrison and the Estes Park Winter Festival.
She looks forward to introducing HeidiTown citizens to new festivals in new destinations and helping these festivals find a new audience.
“HeidiTown is about exploration. Not the kind that requires a passport, but the kind that requires a car and a desire to drive new roads,” said Kerr-Schlaefer. “While Colorado will always be the heart and soul, and main attraction of HeidiTown, new roads are calling me.”
“I think HeidiTown citizens will be excited to go on these new adventures with me, and I’m excited to expand the town’s population through this annexation.”

HeidiTown was founded in 2007, but it wasn’t until 2010 that the town began to see major growth.
It was coverage of Colorado’s emerging festival scene that caught the attention of the masses and put HeidiTown on the map.
By publicizing startup festivals like Estes Park Winter Festival, the 1940s Ball,  and various beer festivals, HeidiTown became the go-to place for Colorado festival information.
HeidiTown’s focus wasn’t only on large events. She covered smaller festivals around the state such as the Glenn Miller Swingfest in Fort Morgan and niche events such as the High Plains Snow Goose Festival in Lamar.

“Festival coverage is what sets HeidiTown apart and it will continue to be the focus of HeidiTown,” said Kerr-Schlaefer, Mayor of HeidiTown. “I’m just going to be driving a little farther to reach them, and in doing so, I’ll share about the towns I discover along the way.”

    1. You never know. Give me another decade and maybe I’ll get there. 😉

      Although the reality is, with my parents living there later this year, I’ll probably end up writing something about Arizona no matter what.

      Thanks for your years of HeidiTown support, Suz!
