It's a gnarly beer festival giveaway!

There is nothing HeidiTown residents (and tourists) like more than free beer and it’s time, once again, to give some away. The 3rd Annual Gnarly Barley Brew Festival is Saturday, August 6 at the Larimer County Fair at The Ranch in Loveland Colorado. This year’s event will be bigger and better than ever with 24 breweries attending. Food and beer pairings will be available again this year presented by Beer

Colorado Renaissance Festival

With knights and ladies, sword fights and duals, turkey legs and sausage on a stick, jesters and wandering musicians, the Colorado Renaissance Festival has more fodder for a writer than most events. 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

Ryan at Colorado Brewers' Festival 2010

I’ve been writing and attending festivals in Colorado for long enough to inform you with authority that we Coloradoans celebrate beer very, very well. I don’t try to keep up with all of the beer festivals around the state – it would be nearly impossible. There are events that feature chili beers, microbrews, home brews, and there are small fests and large fests and then there’s the grand daddy of

Fly Fishing RMNP

Father’s Day is less than two weeks away, so I thought it was the perfect time for this giveaway. Fly-fishing is a popular Colorado pastime, and for good reason. The Colorado Rockies provide some of the most pristine rivers in the world, and some of the best are in Rocky Mountain National Park. Coloradoan Steve Schweitzer started hiking and fishing RMNP eleven years ago. He kept meticulous notes about his

Dice on rearview mirror

I blogged about this event last year and then again on May 18. I am now excited to announce that I’ll be giving away two tickets to Colorado Nationals, the largest car show west of the Mississippi. The show is being held this weekend, June 3-5 at the The Ranch Complex in Loveland, Colorado. This is going to be a fast and furious giveaway, just like many cars that will

Greeley Blues Jam 2011

I never cease to be amazed at the sheer amount of quality live music available in Northern Colorado. Music festivals happen here year round from Fort Collins to Greeley. On June 10, one of Colorado’s most anticipated music events will kick off. The Greeley Blues Jam is a nationally recognized blues festival held every year at Island Grove Arena in Greeley, Colorado. The Greeley Chamber of Commerce and the City

1940s WWII Era Ball event poster

Boys, put on your zoot suit and winged tipped shoes and girls, get out the hot iron. It’s time for the 1940s WWII Era Ball at Boulder Airport. This unique event caught my eye several years ago, and last year we bought tickets for my in-laws to attend. They had a blast, so this year, the Mayor will be putting on her dancing shoes and joining the party! The 1940s
