Heritage Weekend: Grillin and Chillin
Ouray Heritage Weekend, which kicks off on Friday, August 24, features county-wide events that celebrate Ouray’s rich mining, ranching and cultural heritage.
The festivities begin at 2:00 PM with live music, regional craft brewers, a BBQ competition and a wide selection of BBQ and festival food served by local vendors and non-profits. The price is $25 for the beer tasting, which comes with a commemorative tasting glass and runs for the duration of the event. The festival and live performances are free. Concert to be announced.
Be sure to spend the weekend mornings and early afternoons at the High Graders Mining Competitions in Miner’s Park (next to Fellin Park) to witness some “friendly” competition in traditional mining skills like single-jacking, team drilling and mucking.
Other events to be announced later
