Join us on Wednesdays from June 28th- August 9th for a complimentary music experience perfect for all ages. Taking place at Creekside Park, Concerts by the Creek is nestled in the heart of Beaver Creek, steps away from the village core, featuring a variety of genres: soul, indie, folk, and more.

Village F.A.C. 
“Friday Afternoon Club” – an Eagle County tradition - comes to Beaver Creek Village this summer. Every Friday, from June 23rd – August 25th, bring the whole family out to the Beaver Creek plaza for live music, shopping, games and more. Try a bite from one of the local restaurants, or purchase a beverage and soak up the summer sun at the seasonal Plaza Pavilion, located at the west end of the ice rink.

Culinary Connection
Stop by the Plaza Pavilion in the Beaver Creek Village on Saturday afternoons throughout the summer to mix and mingle with the behind the scenes people who give Beaver Creek its world-renowned culinary reputation – Beaver Creek chefs, sommeliers and beyond. Each session is unique – from cooking demonstrations and wine pairings to discussions on the history of a storied Beaver Creek gourmet outlet – and each session offers the chance to try a free sampling of the restaurants’ tasty creations.
