We stayed in Vail for a week, and the Ford Park was within walking distance from our condo. We were lucky to be able to see a free show as part of the Bud Light Summer Series -- a HipHop Dance Crew contest, which was right up my daughter's alley and such a great evening.

You cannot beat an evening of classical music in an incredible setting. We sat on the lawn at the very top and were glad that we did.

We saw a free concert here and the place was beautiful. Bring your blanket and arrive early to get a seat with the big rocks to lean up against. Super Comfortable!

This is a great venue. Small and personal. We sat in one of the covered seats for Darius Rucker. The back drop is beautiful and there is plenty of lawn seating. You can buy wine, beer and cocktails.
