Start your 4th of July celebration early when you take in a concert. “High-Note Thursdays” is a free summer-long concert series at the Rendezvous Event Center.

Winter Park Art Trail
Wander along the Fraser River Trail and take in the art of the inaugural Winter Park Art Trail on Friday, July 2nd. It’s part of Uptripping’s First Fridays and features some of Winter Park’s best artists along the route. Take a moment to enjoy each piece, and don’t forget to vote for your favorite. Keep a lookout for any patriotic pieces or décor along the way.
Don your best red, white, and blue and head to the High County Stampede. The event is part of the CPRA rodeo series and features a junior rodeo, HCSR events, and CPRA rodeo events. There is plenty of other rodeo fun in store for everyone. The event takes place Saturday, July 3rd.
Lace up your running shoes and get some exercise while you celebrate patriotism. The Run for Independence is a 5-mile race along the Fraser River Trail and around Winter Park. You’ll end up at the Rendezvous Event Center. The starting pistol sounds at 8:30 a.m. If running isn’t your preferred workout, join the yoga class on the lawn at the Rendezvous Event Center. Stretch and breathe in the fresh mountain air starting at 9 a.m. on the 4th.
