End of Summer Community Celebration

End of Summer Community Celebration

Event date: September 9


Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater

The Vail Valley Foundation’s End of Summer Community Celebration concert on September 9, 2021, will be an opportunity for Eagle County to gather after what we expect will be a very vibrant summer. It is a time for us to acknowledge, with respect and reverence, the challenges all of us have faced during the pandemic, and that so many still face today. It is also a time to celebrate the tenacity, resilience, creativity, and collaborative spirit of this amazing community which has allowed us to now be in a much better place.

This event is our community’s opportunity to honor and thank the heroes of our Valley, from our healthcare team and first responders to our County and Town Governments, teachers, hospitality workers and the countless others who did their jobs with grace and courage under difficult circumstances.

The concert event will feature three groups of local musicians gracing the stage:

  • L.O.V.E – Legends of Vail Eclectic, led by Brent Gordon
  • Root Souls Ensemble, led by Terry Armistead and Jena Skinner
  • Jambush, led by Johnny Schleper and Jake Wolf

The End of Summer Community Celebration concert is a project of the Vail Valley Foundation with underwriting support from the Town of Vail & Donna Giordano.  Additional underwriting opportunities are available. Contact Dave Dressman at ddressman@vvf.org to learn more.
