We caught the Urban Dance Competition which was Free (yeah!). The lawn is pretty steep so viewing is great from every spot. Bring a blanket if you don't have seats. You can buy bottles of wine at the food stand vs just buying a glass. Nice option.

We sat in the reserved seats (beginning at $44pp), but there is an uncovered grassy section also (not sure if there is a charge for that). With the Aspen and the Mountains surrounding us, the...

The July 4th Celebration was wonderful! The music as great, the tribute to our men and women who have protected our country was beautiful, and the venue setting could not be any better. BRAVO did an amazing job! THANK YOU!

Seeing classical music at this venue during Bravo Vail is a can't miss experience. It's great to have the opportunity to see top level talent and enjoy a nice picnic on the grass. Make sure you get there when the gates open if you want a good spot!

This facility provides as fine a place for outdoor concerts as I have ever experienced. The sound is excellent. It has covered seat areas as well as grass and bench seats. It also has handicap accessible places. Around the perimeter it has spaces for refreshments, bathroom, and sales space available.

This was a very nice, small, outside venue. It was well maintained - a great place to hear top talent and still feel like an intimate venue. I enjoyed it very much!

This place is sweet. Go early to the summer Tuesday concerts and get a seat up to on the rocks if the weather is good. Free valet parking for you bikes is great.

We attended a Bud Light series concert here. Not a bad seat on the site. Great acoustics!!! There was alcohol served at the site and everyone just had a great time, no matter what your age.
