It’s the last summer weekend before Labor Day and Steamboat Springs is once again going to be packed with visitors. On Friday afternoon the USA Pro Cycling Challenge arrives in town. After an 83-mile bike ride from Avon, the cyclists will roll in around 3:30pm.

As usual, Steamboat has pulled out all the stops for the tour, hosting events all day Friday and Saturday. Along with expos, award ceremonies and factory tours, there’s a variety of live music. Here’s where you can find it:

11:00am-1:00pm – Lifestyle Expo

1:00pm-3:00pm –Lifestyle Expo, featuring Loose Change

5:00pm-7:00pm – Ciao Gelato

5:30pm – Howelsen Hill, featuring 3 Twins Broadband with members of the Subdudes

Don’t forget to add Strings’ final concert of the season, Head for the Hills, to your to-do list. Cool bluegrass with a blend of traditional harmonies, a myriad of music styles, and sonic landscapes, is a perfect end to a hot summer day. The show is on Saturday night at 8:00pm. Tickets are $25 in advance and $28 the day of. You can purchase tickets online at www.stringsmusicfestival.com, by calling the box office at (970) 879-5056 x 105, or in the Strings office.
