Aspen WeCycle


Belly Up Aspen is one of Aspen's top spots for live music, having featured headliners such as Kygo, The Killers, Kacey Musgraves, and more. Check out our calendar to see who's playing during the weekend.

Enjoy free music at the top of Aspen Mountain at Bluegrass Sundays. All you need to purchase is a gondola ticket, or work off those calories from the Food & Wine Classic by hiking to the top of Ajax. The show begins promptly at noon and the Sundeck will be open offering a full bar and lunch.


Plan some time for a hike up the Ute Trail or Hunter Creek, a bike ride on the Rio Grande Trail, a visit to the Maroon Bells or a run out the East Aspen trail. Summertime is a spectacular time of year to visit Aspen and is best seen on car, foot, or bike! Check out our top local trails here


Check out the locally grown produce, Colorado art, and jewelry at the Aspen Saturday Market. The market runs from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in downtown Aspen on the streets of Hunter, Hopkins, and Hyman. Cooking demonstrations are held as well as live music and entertainment for children.


To support local restaurants and the Aspen community, Food & Wine will host the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen Dine Around, presented by S.Pellegrino. The Dine Around will team up local Aspen chefs with Classic in Aspen talent including Andrew Zimmern, Kwame Onwuachi, Claudette Zepeda and Brooke Williamson to create a one-of- a-kind menu for Classic attendees and Aspen locals to select while dining at their favorite restaurants.
