A Snowmass summer tradition 28 years in the making, the Snowmass Free Concert Series is a must-do summer music event. Every Thursday evening (and two bonus Saturdays), locals and visitors alike gather on Fanny Hill to enjoy some of the country’s best live bands in a relaxed atmosphere with a spectacular mountain backdrop.

There is also a EuroBungy operated by Camp Aspen Snowmass adjacent to the stage for $10 (signed waiver and cash required). The Family Fun Zone is open at all Thursday concerts, not on Saturdays.
What to bring: We suggest a picnic blanket or chairs to sit on, and a jacket or sweater for after the sun goes down. For food, pack a picnic, grab to-go items from a nearby Snowmass restaurant, or purchase food from the vendors on Fanny Hill.
Where to go: Concerts are held on the Fanny Hill Concert Stage at the end of the Snowmass Mall. We recommend taking the free RFTA bus service from Aspen and the Intercept Lot, or the free Village Shuttle service throughout Snowmass. It is best to get off at the Snowmass Mall stop.
If you are driving, all numbered lots along Carriage Way and the Base Village Parking Garage offer free parking during the summer months. If you park in the garage, you can ride the free Sky Cab Gondola (known as the Skittles) between Base Village and the Snowmass Mall. Free parking is also available at Town Park Station and the Brush Creek Intercept Lot, with free shuttles to the Snowmass Mall and Base Village. For more event parking information, please click here.
