In Honor of St. Patty’s Day Coming Around the Corner...
THURSDAY MARCH 12TH - SATURDAY, MARCH 14TH
Get in the Irish spirit at the Durango Celtic Festival. This festival features three days of music from Ireland, Scotland, the Hebrides and Cape Breton. This is the perfect weekend to start celebrating the different cultures from across the Atlantic. St. Patty’s day is the Tuesday after the festival-- so it is the perfect time to start celebrating! Learn just what St. Patty’s Day is all about and head on over to the Pub or the Henry Strater Theatre to enjoy the beautiful sounds of strings, woods and flutes.

Pie and running? Seems like a great combination to me! Don’t worry, you’ll be doing all the pie eating you can after the race, not before. Even though it’s Friday the 13th, we would rather not see something scary coming back up after eating too much pie and then running over 3 miles. Yikes! This event is absolutely free to enter, but it is a pie potluck! Bring a pizza pie, berry pie, chocolate pie-- whatever you can think of! Get competitive and pull that apron out because there will be an award given out to whoever makes the best, most creative home-made pie! Important Disclosure: This is not actually National Pi Day-- National Pie Day is March 14th
SUNDAY, 6 - 8:30PM
Have a love for the perfect combination of good beer and great music? Who doesn’t?! That is why the folks out in Mancos, Colorado are hosting the annual Mancos Melt at the Mancos Brewing Company. This year, the jams will be deriving from a blast from the past-- the age of rock n’ roll. The brewery in Mancos features various IPAs, ales, porters and lagers; there’s something to please everyone’s tastes. Come out to Mancos, enjoy a good brew, listen to music and grab a bite! It’s the perfect way to bring your epic weekend to a completion!
