July 2021 Events

Created with Sketch.

Summer is a time full of activities and fun in Durango for locals and tourists alike! Here are three happenings going on this month to mark on your calendar!

Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad is not new here; but rather quite historic. Founded in 1880 by the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, the 141 year old railroad leads passenger trains 45 miles from Durango to Silverton. This 3 ½ hour (one-way) ride lets you experience the beauties our corner of Colorado has to offer. A diesel and iconic steam train transport passengers to Silverton where there is time to take in the old-timey town before either returning via the train or Skyway Bus. Book your tickets on their site here: https://www.durangotrain.com/

Music in the Mountains is celebrating their 35th season and kicking it off with a hors d’oeuvres and wine/bubbly party. Hosted at the Keyah Grande in Pagosa Springs, CO the grounds boast fantastic views of the San Juans to explore before the music begins. A small handful of artists will play in this intimate chamber concert. The program has events throughout July to commence the production of exceptional music.
