September 21, 2017
Rocky Mountain Events is calling all cider and wild ale lovers to this Saturday's Strings, Ciders and Sours Festival in Breckenridge. Nestled in Main Street Station below Peak 9, there will be hand-crafted ciders, a sours garden and two bluegrass bands performing. Meadow Mountain Bluegrass, the festival opener, is a folk and bluegrass band that claims Vail as its hometown. The band has received much acclaim this year as winners of the 2017 Rockygrass band competition, winners of the 2017 UllrGrass band competition and third place finalists at the legendary Telluride Bluegrass Festival this year. The band explores traditions of Swedish fiddle music, acoustic jazz, old-time and classical. Meadow Mountain is set to take the stage at 2 p.m., with High Five to follow at 4 p.m. High Five is a local four-piece ensemble. The band members come from a wide variety of musical backgrounds, and combine their bluegrass, reggae, folk, Americana, trance, Afro-Cuban and rock influences for a rich, diverse sound. Guests will receive a commemorative glass with their $40 ticket, as well as unlimited tastings at this grand mixology.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the run takes off at 9:30 a.m. There will be presentations by Dr. Christine Ebert-Santos from the Ebert Family Clinic, Susan Fairweather from Kaiser Permanente Community Relations, Doug Masiuk, founder of 1Run.org, as well as diabetic children from the county.
