While your stay at our bed & breakfast in Frisco affords you an all-encompassing vacation spot without ever having to leave town limits, you might want to consider heading seven miles up the highway this August/September, seeing as five of the following six events are happening at Copper Mountain, just a 10-minute drive from the Frisco Lodge. So without further adieu, here is what’s going on in and around Frisco this August and September.

The Arts and Artisan Festival will adorn Copper’s streets and alleys with fine art from several of Colorado and the West’s leading artists. And what high country festival would be complete without something for the kiddos? Located on the Pavilion Lawn, the Kids Arts and Crafts Corral will keep the kids busy with face painting, chalk art, bounce house and art classes.

On September 12-13 the Frisco Bay Marina will be bursting with the flavors, sights and sounds of fall in the high country with Frisco’s Fall Fest. On Saturday, September 12 from 10am-6pm, Frisco restaurants will be on hand to showcase their signature dishes in what is affectionately called the “Flavors of Frisco.” Grab small plate samples of food from Frisco’s effervescent restaurant scene and wash it all down with an adult beverage from Backcountry Brewery and Coyote Gold. But, Frisco’s Fall Fest didn’t forget about the kids as a concert, face painting, a make and take art project for both children and adults and other children’s activities will be on hand. The weekend continues on Sunday as Meet the Artist (both days) gives visitors a chance to peruse and purchase fine art items from local and regional artists.
