Glenwood Springs is the place to be if you like outdoor summer music concerts with knock-your-socks-off views. Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park which was voted the Local’s Choice for Best Place to View a Sunset and Best Music Venue hosts performances Fridays and Saturdays throughout the summer months.

Friday Afternoon Club (FAC). Launched just recently, FAC features live music and food and drink specials from 5 – 9 p.m. every Friday through August 8.
