Summer In Idaho Springs Has Come & Gone Again

Summer In Idaho Springs Has Come & Gone Again

Summer is gone and we had a blast, now it’s time to take a look back!

Summer in A Nutshell

What says summer in Idaho Springs like rafting, hiking, walking, and music festival-ing? Nothing! Idaho Springs does summer unlike any other mountain town and Summer 2019 was unforgettable. Whether you took on the whitewater of Clear Creek, hiked up to St. Mary’s glacier, enjoyed some fishing with Mt. Evans Trout Fishing, or enjoyed downtown’s history and culture, your summer in Idaho Springs was surely eventful and fun!

Events, Events, Events!

Idaho Springs had many events that kept us busy and we loved every minute of it! The summer events were filled with enjoying the beautiful Idaho Springs weather, family fun, great music, and more! 

Glacier Fest

Glacier Fest rocked again – the rain couldn’t stop Idaho Springs from celebrating! The ore cart race was as lively as ever.  Even if your cart breaks, the race must go on! Great local beer (thanks, Tommyknocker!), pork green chili mac & cheese, and more delicious food, too? Sounds like we need a highlight reel just for the food!


Tons of music means tons of fun!  RapidGrass Festival, winner of Best Event in 2019’s Best Of Idaho Springs competition, was one for the books again this year! The festival transformed the Shelly-Quinn baseball fields into a bluegrass extravaganza! With people scattered all around, enjoying the music from their lawn chairs or dancing to the beat, this was certainly the place to be.

The music never stopped, with bands playing around the clock and smaller stages filling up in between sets on the main stage. It sure does look like a blast – and it was!

Summertime Blues

While summer in Idaho Springs has come to a close, we have the last months of 2019 to look forward to! With the beauty of the aspen trees in fall, more fun fall and winter events and celebrations, and skiing on the horizon, there’s so much to look forward to! We can’t wait to see what the next seasons hold.
