Nederland is famous for its winter resort and of course as the venue for the popular Frozen Dead Guy Days Festival. But have no doubts - Nederland is a unique tourist destination with exciting events all year round and there is plenty ti here, even in the summer.
The town is great as a gateway to the outdoor recreation in the nearby Roosevelt National Forest, Indian Peaks Wilderness, Rocky Mountain National Park, and the newly established James Peak Wilderness. This area is famous for its breathtaking beauty and enchanting mountain views. There are plenty of activities here in addition to hiking, and enjoying nature.
The 18th annual High Peak Art Festival will be held on June 23-24. It is one of the top ten summer festivals! This is an exhibition of fine arts and crafts in a beautiful mountain area. The festival is complemented by live music and food court. The Strangebyrds and The CBD have already been confirmed!
The 2018 festival will include 43 artists and their works, including painting, photography, jewelry, body care, metal, wood and mixed media fine craft. The festival received many positive reviews in the art community, including FestivalNet, which gave the show and its director 5 stars.
And that's not all - plenty of celebrations are planned for Independence Day. One of the biggest holidays of the year will offer fireworks and much more, including the 4th of July Parade that will commence at the Salto and Tin Shed Sports' grandstand at 11:30 am on Wednesday.
NedFest is one of the largest music festivals in Colorado. On August 24-26, 2018, more than a dozen bands will gather in Nederland and fill the valley with music amidst the splendid background of the Barker reservoir and our Ponderosa Pine-covered mountains. Tickets are required to enter NedFest, so better buy in advance and enjoy the music.
And don't forget the Scenic Byway that passes a few of Colorado's ghost towns. Caribou used to be a silver camp but is deserted now. However, Nederland (the town that was established to supply Caribou) lives on. There are also many gold mines along Hwy 72 and 119. On the weekends, prospectors still pan for gold in the creeks, and there are a few gold mines along the way that allow the public to pan for the sparkling golden flakes. Visitors have to pay to pan, but children find it exciting and many times rewarding, making it worth the small fee.
We’d also like to remind tourists that recreational marijuana, as well as the medical one is legally available in Nederland. Thus, you should definitely stop by our rustic location in Nederland at 1 W 1st St # 1.
