The Summit Sensation is coming!

Exactly four month from today the Summit Sensation will be taking place at the Silverthorne Pavilion. (August 24-27) Why are we letting you know now? We’re looking for people to join the SWAT Team – SWAT stands for Summit Working All Together with an event that is 100 percent all about Summit County.

What is the Summit Sensation? The idea was sparked by a creative local who volunteers for many good causes in the Summit. Non-profits play a huge part in making our community great from our energized seniors activity groups to unique specialized ski gear from the BOEC to those supporting our recycling and conservation efforts to community dinners feeding those in need we have over 200 amazing groups that support our mountain paradise from the depth of their hearts. Hard working dedicated individuals that rarely take a well-deserved bow.

Due the financial downturn of the past few years these groups have been challenged along with the rest of our community. As people tighten their belts, fewer people are giving. Thus was born the Summit Sensation as a wonderful solution with a four-day fun event bringing together the best entertainers and artists of Summit County with all of the proceeds going to help non-profits in need.

The event will consist of a four day art show and farmers market. A silent auction and raffle will take place during the day in the Pavilion and every evening the fun begins with entertainment from school choirs, church choirs, bands, solo artists, jugglers and a variety of the most amazing local talent all coming together for a wonderful time and to support our local non-profits!

What can you do? Join the SWAT Team! This is an opportunity for all the clubs to work together from Rotaries, Elks, chambers, ski clubs, etc… Helping with ticket sales, creativity, organization, media, merchandising, silent auction items, sponsors.

Are you a performer? Join in the fun! Summit Sensation brings all of the incredible talent in the Summit together as never before while benefiting non-profit groups supporting wonderful causes in the Summit.
