The Weekender // Dec 13th - 15th
This weekend, it’s time to bundle up for snow and get ready for the holiday season. Durango Weather Guy is predicting chances of snow Friday through Monday, so grab those puffies and hot chocolate. With Noel Night behind us, local businesses and organizations are still in full swing helping you be merry and bright during the holiday season! This weekend, we’ve got a special edition market, a community Christmas, and the chance to chop down your very own San Juan Christmas Tree.
Winter Farmers Market - Saturday, 9am - 2pm
Durango Farmers Holiday Market at the La Plata County Fairgrounds
Local farmers and ranchers are selling the last of this year’s produce and winter crops just in time for the holidays. Meat, cheese, produce, and talented local artisans are all teaming up to make this Durango Farmers Holiday Market.
