How to reach me:
HeidiTown was established in 2007 but began to grow steadily in 2010. Today, the town enjoys an engaged citizenry who have come to recognize HeidiTown as a source for entertaining festival and travel stories.
My name is Heidi Kerr-Schlaefer, and I’m the Mayor of HeidiTown. For 16 years I have worked as a freelance writer and for almost a decade as the western destinations blogger at Mountain Living magazine’s The Heidi Guide. In addition, I have co-owned a furniture design and manufacturing company with my husband, Ryan Schlaefer, since 2004.
For the past 15 years, I have been traveling Colorado from corner to corner. HeidiTown has covered big fêtes such as Winter Carnival in Steamboat Springs and niche events like High Plains Snow Goose Festival in Lamar. HeidiTown’s covered brand new beer festivals such as San Juan Brewfest in Durango and small soirees like the Glenn Miller Swingfest in Fort Morgan.
On March 10, 2017, HeidiTown annexed Arizona, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming.

Citizen from Denver, Colorado
“We went to Manitou Springs on Heidi’s recommendation. Loved it so much.”
