Western Adventure Weekend This Weekend!
This weekend is Rifle’s signature event: Western Adventure Weekend! The festival kicks off Friday night with the soulful musical experience of the Hazel Miller Band at the Ute Theater. Doors open at 7pm for this 7:30 show and $10 tickets are available at the door.
Saturday at 9:00 am mountain bike enthusiasts will gather for a race up Hubbard Mesa followed at 9:15 with the start of a 5K race running Rifle’s urban trails. Register for the Roan Cliff Chaos online here.
Also on Saturday, two blocks of historic downtown Rifle will be the center of activities with a Block Party from 10 am to 5 pm. The streets will fill with arts and craft vendors, food trucks, live music and activities for the kids.
Saturday night there will be a free street concert featuring the Led Zepplin tribute band Get the Led Out from 7 pm – 9 pm. Get your FREE wristbands in advance at the Rifle Area Chamber of Commerce (limit 4 per person) as we expect this to be a big event!
Garfield County Fairgrounds hosts a Militaria Collector and Gun Show on Saturday and Sunday. Bring your skis, balls, skates, boats, tents and well used sport toys for their All Sports Swap Meet.

A big thank you to Kim and Dan Ward for hosting Mermaids in August. We had a great time with delicious food, genuine people, and big entertainment! Thank you Lou for snapping these photos (I somehow managed to jump into nearly all of them!). If you are interested in hosting a future Mermaids gathering, please contact Anna!
