Powderhorn Mountain Resort’s inaugural Bottles, Cans & Music Festival will rock Grand Mesa Sunday, July 27, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Three American-style rock bands are set to play — The Whitewater Ramble Trio, Milemakers, and The Band of Heathens — along with wine and beer from around the nation. Music and tasting tickets cost $40 per person; price includes a sampling mug. Tickets for music only cost $25 per person. Kids under age 13 may attend the event for free.

“Enjoy the cool mountain air and some refreshing beverages,” Powderhorn’s spokesman Dave Smith said.

Beer and wine tasting (from cans and bottles, hence the name) is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with music to continue into the evening. Full food and beverage options will also be available inside Powderhorn’s lodge. A chairlift will be open for scenic rides as well, along with bag jumping and the bungee trampoline.

According to Smith, on-site camping is available though no services will be provided. Outside food and beverages, along with pets, are not allowed for the duration of the festival. Parking however is free.

“We’d like to see 200 people” at the event, he added, noting that Bottles, Cans & Music Festival will be an annual celebration. “Now we want to bring more music concerts and other fun events to the resort in the summer.”

Next summer, the home-grown ski resort will host even more music, Smith added.
