Top Summer Events in Vail and Beaver Creek

Vail and Beaver Creek truly sparkle when the grass is green, and the weather is fine! Although we are known for our epic mountain resorts, summer is a hidden gem. Summertime is the perfect time for outdoor events, which we have in droves. Check out our top Vail and Beaver Creek summer events to enjoy.

The GoPro Mountain Games are the country's largest celebration of adventure sports, art, and music. Pro and amateur athletes compete for fun and glory during this welcome-to-summer festival.
From running to climbing, biking to dogs jumping from docks, there isn’t one minute of downtime.
Bravo! Vail hosts some of the greatest orchestras, musicians, and acclaimed soloists throughout the summer. Come watch these masters perform in a breathtaking mountain setting at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater.
Kick off the Fourth of July with all the patriotism, live music, and parade entertainment you could ask for with one of Vail’s most popular holiday celebrations. Don your red, white, and blue and head into the village to grab a spot along the parade route. After watching the drumline, flags, and balloons, enjoy the Patriotic Concert featuring rock and Americana music. Instead of fireworks lighting up the skies for the Fourth of July in Vail, look to the skies to see a high-tech drone show hovering over the mountains. Drone shows have become very popular with fire danger and precautions. The drone show will be visible from many different view corridors around town.
A fun family event to celebrate the nation's birthday under the stunning blue skies in Colorado. Head up to Beaver Creek for a day and night filled with fun and live music at the base of the resort. In addition to daily lift operations, hiking, biking, and activities such as mini-golf and the bungee trampoline, and plenty of food vendors and restaurants. Live music starts at noon until dark and Beaver Creek has set up a huge stage at the base of the hill, so bring your blankets and stake your claim on a piece of grass for you and your group.
