In Colorado, the seasons seem to change a bit more slowly than in other areas of the U.S. In July, mountain temperatures peak around 73 degrees, making this prime summertime weather. This is a great getaway from the warmer temperatures in cities like Denver. As the air warms up and the sun comes out to play more than ever, more diverse outdoor pursuits begin to arise. Year-round, there’s some form of outdoor recreation at your disposal, but summertime boasts a variety of outdoor events like live music.
One of the most popular and long-standing live music events is the Winter Park Jazz Festival. Each July for more than 35 years, this festival brings world-class artists of the genre to Winter Park. Enjoy this festival and even more exciting things to do right in the comfort of your own backyard when you call Colorado home.
