Fort Collins band Euforquestra will perform at the inaugural Escape Cabin Fever at Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon on March 4.

AVON — Around this time of year, we begin daydreaming about white sand, warm nights, blue water and breaking out the flip-flops. In the doldrums of winter, Walking Mountains Science Center has the solution to help you escape cabin fever.

On Saturday, March 4, the science center will host a tropical experience in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, with Euforquestra performing the first-ever live concert at Walking Mountains.

Euforquestra is from Fort Collins and delivers "modern funk and roots with vintage soul," with a full eight-piece band. In addition to live music, dancing, tropical food and cocktails, Escape Cabin Fever will include a silent auction. Bid on a pair of Liberty Skis, a spa getaway at The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa, a tour of the new Monkshood winery in Minturn and more.

Walking Mountains concert

"We are excited to host our first-ever concert at Walking Mountains," said Patty White, vice president of development. "This is going to be a fabulous evening with awesome music, food and drinks. Bring your friends, put on your festive tropical attire and be sure to buy tickets early as they are selling fast."

Two free buses will be making round-trips from the Dusty Boot Roadhouse in Eagle to Walking Mountains for the event. There is also a shuttle running regularly throughout the night from Avon Elementary School to the concert. Parking at Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon will be very limited on a first-come, first-serve basis, so cozy up and carpool or consider our shuttle options.
