John Denver Celebration starts October 6, 2021!

Hi everyone!

We are only about a month away to the beginning of the 2021 John Denver Celebration week!

This year there some very special concerts and events happening, so be sure to check out the schedule!

Do you remember watching John Denver's special in Alaska?  Brings back some great memories of watching John's television specials!  I remember looking so forward to each and everyone one of them!  Well, this year, there is a special movie night that will feature Alaska:  The American Child on the big movie screen at the Wheeler Opera House on October 8, 2021.    John Wilcox, who was the producer and director on the special is specially remastering the documentary to show on the big screen and will share some stories with us behind the scenes!  The showing is free at the Wheeler Opera House, but you need a ticket to enter.  To get your ticket, go to aspenshowtix.com and you can order then on-line. 

A highlight for the past 24 years, has been the various concerts at the Wheeler Opera House.  From John's former band members who started the tradition and were instrumental in the start of the celebration week, the shows have featured various band members and favorite artists and performers who perform John's music.  

This year the Saturday night tradition continues on October 9, 2021 with Chris Collins and Boulder Canyon returning to pay tribute to John's music.  Chris and the members of Boulder Canyon tour extensively performing in various theaters and venues all over the USA and Canada to much acclaim wherever they go.  Their goal is not only pay tribute to John's music, but to his life and all he gave us, and help keep his music alive.  Be sure to check out the show in the historic and beautifully restored Wheeler Opera House! Tickets can be purchased at aspenshowtix.com or by calling the box office at 970-920-5770 or 866-449-0464.  Get your tickets soon, as the best seats are going fast!

Do you want to do something really different for the week with great food and entertainment?   The Pine Creek Cookhouse Event is in its 13th year in 2021!  In past years, this has been a sell-out event during the week.  The Pine Creek Cookhouse in very well acclaimed in the region as one of Aspen's best dining experiences... not only for ambiance there, but also for the views!  Combine that with John Denver tunes, and you have a really special day together!  Tickets:  $95 per the meal, gratuities and entertainment.  Contact Suzanne at mountainsrose312@gmail.com.  Get your tickets soon, as space is very limited this year!
