October is a quiet and beautiful time of year to visit Fourteener Country!
With the summer crowds gone you can have the best trails, lakes, fishing spots, and peaks all to yourself. This is a great time of the year to hike, bike, explore jeep trails and ghost towns before they are buried under the snow.
Here are a few things happening this October.
ShedFest is the CCFA's annual, end-of-season harvest celebration. It is your final opportunity to buy amazing fresh, local produce, support our local farmers, ranchers, artists and healers.
Stay for the party after the farmers market! Salida Circus will perform and offer an interactive workshop. Salida Rec. will host all kinds of kids activities, our vendors will offer more in depth info and workshops about what they do.
Then, we will break bread and enjoy a professionally catered, farm-to-table dinner, live music, dancing and mingling. Partying with you farmer doesn't get any better than this.
