Vail International Dance Festival

It’s no joke that there seems to be an endless amount of things to do in the summer in Vail! There has long been a misconceived notion that it gets pretty boring and quiet around here once the snow melts, but we are here to let you know that’s not even close to being true!

The 27th season of Vail International Dance Festival kicks off July 27th just after Bravo Vail! ends. The two week event bBetty-Ford-Alpine-Gardens-Vail-Colorado-La-Tour-Vail-Chef-Troy-Froman-Cooking-Demonstaration-Vail-Valley-Culinary-Eventsrings dancers from all around the world to this wonderful place we call home. The majority of events will be taking place at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater surrounded by the stunning beauty of the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens. There is a free preview of the Dance Festival on July21st at Ford Amphitheater the 8150 Urban Dance Challenge returns as one of the performances during the Hot Summer Nights series.

To us the perfect date night would start with some champagne on the patio here at the restaurant followed by a stroll along the Gore Creek followed by a walk through the gardens completed by catching a performance by Savion Glover and the Otherz, the Tony Award-winning legend of tap dance. (Ahem, hint hint!) But, that could just be us! If you are looking for some pre-event cocktails and nibbles we do have happy hour from 4-6PM nightly and reservations are welcome! Call us at 970-476-4403 or book online here.
