Grand Valley Bank Concert Series
The Grand Valley Bank Concert Series at Deer Valley Resort, programmed by Mountain Town Music, has become the midweek anchor to most Parkite’s schedules. When Friday-eve-eve rolls around, locals and visitors alike stock coolers with snacks and drinks, grab picnic blankets and camp chairs, and head on out to the lawn to enjoy terrific, free music.
Each Wednesday this summer (except July 4), all ages are welcome to enjoy this concert series, featuring a truly full range of music.
The following weeks will see performances from Take 5, Smiling Souls, Troubadour 77 with BroBand, Aiko, The Breakfast Klub, and Yolanda Arrey. Check out the full schedule HERE.
And – one we’re really looking forward to is the August 22nd show – the Live PC Give PC Community Jam Session! The event will bring local musicians together to celebrate the end of summer.
Food and Beverages
Coolers are welcome, so feel free to pack yours full of snacks, treats, and drinks (glass containers are allowed). Deer Valley’s concession stand operates during the concerts, with food and beverages (including alcohol), available for purchase. Do not – we repeat – do not forget to grab a famous DV cookie to enjoy, whether it’s after dinner, before dinner, or for your dinner. Deer Valley Grocery Café also offers to-go items to grab on your way up to the resort.
You can also take advantage of a pre-made picnic bag, prepared by Deer Valley and ready for you to pick up at the concert! Vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan, and children’s options are offered. Enjoy selections like Chilled Niman Ranch braised beef short rib, housemade basil gnocchi, quinoa-cauliflower bites, and peanut butter and jelly sushi rolls (that one’s for the kids but it sounds pretty good to us). Each basket comes with an entrée, salad, snacks, and dessert.
The concerts are held in the Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater, at the base of Deer Valley Resort. Gates open at 4 p.m. (the prime spots fill up fast), and the music plays from 5:30 – 8. Picnics, coolers, glass containers, and dancing are permitted – animals are not. Parking is free.
