Aspen and Carbondale’s Fairs and Markets

Aspen and Carbondale’s Fairs and Markets

Since Colorado’s snowy weather and muddy trails usually persevere throughout the month of June, July is when Aspen locals shed down to as close to their skivvies as possible and get their summer muscle sculpt on – overturning every obstacle in their path as they conquer peaks, rapids, cracks, roads and single tracks. And when they emerge exhausted and satiated, they gather together in parks and on closed streets at our abounding fairs and markets to enjoy the locally made food, crafts…and brewed and distilled beer and spirits. And of course there is always music playing to ensure that they keep their bodies moving to release lactic acid build up.

Aspen Arts Festival

With back to back fairs and markets, there is never want for something to do, the problem only lies in taking the time to do it, and that’s why we have a team to cover as much as we possibly can, beginning with the 14th Annual Downtown Aspen Arts Festival that boasted creations ranging from life-size sculptures, photography, glass, paintings, ceramics, one-of-a-kind jewelry, and mixed media.

Carbondale Mountain Fair

The beloved 45th Annual Carbondale Mountain Fair, which began in what seems like an ancient time period, 1972. Today, the Mountain Fair draws over 145 vendors who show off their homemade wares to the 20,000 people who pass through and what seems like the whole of Carbondale, and those adventurous folk who aren’t afraid to drive past the round a bout,  to sing songs of peace together and dance up a storm in front of the live music playing on the stage while children dunk their heads in the stream and play at The Oasis, an interactive and creative playground.

An enormous departure from the calm and sophisticated events of Aspen, people let loose at this fair enjoying tremendous community spirit, best evidenced by the over 300 volunteers who come together to run the fair.

Aspen Saturday Farmer’s Market

A diverse marketplace for locals and visitors. The ASMG was approved by City Council in 1998. 2016 will mark their 18th year as a market.

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
