Vail Daily column: September is a great time of year

Chris Cremer
Vail Chamber

Now that Labor Day has passed, let’s take a look forward to some of the business opportunities that take place in September. We still have a variety of events slated throughout the month such as Vail Oktoberfest , the America Cup, the Wellness Summit, an entire month of farmer’s markets and art festivals on Sundays, and Vail Restaurant Week. All of these events will help to keep our streets busy on top of my personal favorite — the changing of the leaves.

During the week, we can relax a bit and work on our projects, or just take some time to enjoy ourselves in the valley. The excitement of the change of seasons is fantastic, as we get to explore our restaurants and shops while preparing for the upcoming ski season.

Upcoming seminars

Speaking of staying busy, we at the Vail Chamber and Business Association are using this time to put together some great informational and educational seminars designed to help our members’ businesses thrive and be more successful. These seminars will certainly be of interest to those looking to improve their businesses, as well as being a great benefit to our members. We will be conducting a mixer at the Cogswell Gallery in September, so please stay tuned to our website,, for specifics.
