Best of Vail: Best Local Summer Festival

People gather for Robert Randolph and the Family Band at the Bonfire Block Party in Eagle in 2017.

1. Bonfire Block Party

2. Mountain Games

3. Hot Summer Nights

The Bonfire Block Party attracted 7,000 people to Eagle in 2017, and with an all-star lineup including Sam Bush, Robert Randolph, Tea Leaf Green and more, it’s hard to imagine it getting any greater. But Bonfire Brewing co-owner Andy Jessen vows it will.

“We’re planning on making it bigger and better in the years ahead,” he said.

The party has secured an awesome spot on the annual calendar, right between Memorial Day and the Mountain Games, and is fast becoming synonymous with the start of summer in the Eagle River Valley.
