Steamboat Springs FREE Summer Concert Series


The Steamboat Springs FREE Summer Concert Series is a Steamboat summer tradition with five free concerts throughout the summer. Come down to the Howelsen Hill amphitheater or the new stage at the Steamboat Ski Area for a night of FREE live music. Don't forget your picnic blanket, chair and dancing shoes!

The Steamboat Springs Free Summer Concert Series (SSFSCS/the Series) began in 1990/91 as a small concert series with several hundred in attendance and presented on the lawn of the Routt County Court House, the community gathering space in the heart of downtown Steamboat Springs. Started by a small record shop owner and friends, the Series now features 5 concerts per year with attendance averaging 3,500 to 5,000 per concert for an annual average of 20-22,000. And boasts nationally recognized artists in the area of pop-rock, reggae, bluegrass, blues, and funk. The series is a gathering for all ages and has become truly one of the signature family events in the valley. Audience sizes can fluxgate relative to the performer’s popularity or how the concert is schedule in relation to signature event weekends. The attendance is generally 20% visitors and 80% locals. One of the most compelling rewards of this program is the access to great music for the regional work force. With the stratification of the haves and the have-nots in our rural resort community, the Series is supported by many businesses as a way for them to provide added benefit to their employees.
