Started in 2017, Barbarian Feast is now the must-have ticket of the season. While we took a brief break during the pandemic, this will be our sixth year of holding the events under the tents at Grimm Brothers Brewhouse in Loveland, Colorado. Offerings always include axe throwing by Axe to Grind of Loveland, a live drummer(s), belly dances by Troupe Sidysaan, a photo booth, and more. These talented people in
TEDx Front Range is taking place in Loveland, Colorado on May 31, 2013. It’s not a festival per se, but I am featuring the event this week anyway. I attended my first TEDx last year, and was pleasantly surprised. I walked away inspired and impressed with the level of talent and determination that emanated from the stage on that afternoon. If you aren’t familiar with TEDx, it originated from TED.
A new beer festival rolls into Northern Colorado this May, and the unique feature at this event will be food trucks. The brainchild of the guys at Grimm Brothers Brewhouse and my favorite beer blogger, Dave of Fermentedly Challenged, Front Range Rally is about all about drinking good beer and eating good food for a good cause. More than 30 craft breweries are participating in the festival, along with 15

Greeley never ceases to surprise me. It’s an unassuming city, better known for beef than almost anything else, but then there’s the music. From the city’s inception, it has embraced music. The last time I visited the Greeley History Museum, I learned that the city is home to one of the nation’s longest running orchestras. The University of Northern Colorado is also well-known for an outstanding School of Music, so
Ten years ago, if you asked a Coloradan where Loveland was they’d point to the mountains. This is because, for many years, Loveland Ski Area was better known than the city with the same name, but that has changed. The City of Loveland is working hard to make sure everyone knows that they are open for business, and last week I had the opportunity to attend the unveiling of Loveland’s
Fort Collins, Colorado is a long way from Baltimore, Maryland and the race wars of the sixties, so will audiences connect with Midtown Arts Center’s current production? I believe they will because the themes of “Hairspray” are timeless, the music is catchy, and the cast is unforgettable. Midtown Arts Center, located in Fort Collins, Colorado, has a well-appointed, 236 seat dinner theater, as well as a banquet room where they
I was raised in a strict vegetarian household, and when I was 16-year-old I rebelled by eating bacon, and since then I’ve been making up for my childhood meat deprivation. Today, I freaking love meat, and barbecue festivals allow me to embrace my teenage rebellion and eat myself into a meat coma. Colorado has become a breeding ground for amazing barbecue events, and I like the trend. Loveland, Colorado has
I started HeidiTown in 2007, as a review blog. I started blogging specifically about events and festivals in May 2010. I’ve always said that HeidiTown was not a calendar of events, but rather stuff the Mayor likes. Unfortunately, it’s starting to look a lot like a calendar, especially this weekly post. I’m going to shake things up. After this week, I am no longer going to give radio listeners a
