5th Annual BurroFest!

BurroFest – June 15, 2024

BurroFest supports our vibrant and active artist community by offering opportunities for artists of all mediums to work with live animal models and share their art with the community. It supports local businesses, serving as one of the highest sales days of the year for our downtown businesses, including art galleries and shops, as well as the local gas station, grocery stores, and motels. Most importantly, this event supports the well-being of our community as a celebration and an opportunity to come together, celebrate the arts, exhibit the animals we cherish, and showcase our rich rural character.

Mixed in Mancos – March 8, 2025

Mixed in Mancos is a new event first held on March 2nd, 2023. An audience of 225 came out to enjoy three bands at the Mancos Opera House and participate in the recording of a collaborative live album. Many attendees came from La Plata County and other cities in the region and occupied rooms in Mancos for the evening. Local motels reported being fully booked for this event. The live recorded album will be offered for sale throughout the year and serves as a celebration of local music and this feel-good community gathering. In 2025 we plan to grow the event to include bands from the surrounding area, including regional tribal communities. We are also exploring the potential of offering a song-writing workshop prior to the evening concert.

3rd Annual in 2025!

This year will be the fourth year of hosting the Mancos Art Market and community members frequently comment on how they look forward to and appreciate the warm community vibe of the event.
