Nothing defines mid-August in Fort Collins better than Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest! This free three-day music festival in downtown Fort Collins has been a staple in the community for years, and this year it’s shaping up to be better than ever.

Kicking off NewWestFest Aug. 14 is Savage Cabbage at the Mountain Stage and Winchester Holiday at the Library Park Stage, both at 5 p.m. From there, numerous bands – including headliners Flobots, Steve Miller Band and Rodrigo y Gabriela – will take five different downtown stages during Aug. 14, 15 and 16.

Not only will festival-goers be able to enjoy continual free music throughout the weekend, but there will also be more than 250 booths featuring art, food, local businesses and more! Children are welcome to explore the two different kids’ sections as well, which includes musical instrument interaction and a full-sized carnival.

Be sure to bring lots of sunscreen and water as the festival will be outside. Keep alcoholic beverages at home, though, and wait to purchase them inside the festival. Taking the MAX (bus stops on Mason Street) is strongly encouraged; operating hours are extended to accommodate festival attendees.

New West Fest 2014

Historic Downtown Fort Collins is set to host some of Colorado’s best live entertainment this weekend at Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest!

As 70+ local Colorado bands flood in to town, the community will begin to celebrate the town’s birthday with three days of live music and entertainment starting August 15th at 5pm and run through August 17th at 7pm.  The free all encompassing festival, in its 10th year with the Bohemian Nights music lineup, expects to see over 100,000 people throughout the weekend festivities.

With six music stages, the Dance Showcase Stage and Kids’ World Stage, the yearly annual event provides nonstop entertainment that is fun for all ages. Music genres covering all spectrums including Reggae, Bluegrass, Pop, R&B, and Folk (just to name a few), will feature both up-and-coming artists and well known bands from across the nation.  Over 250 vendor booths will be onsite as well, offering goods, services, information, and of course, great food and beverages.

And a festival isn’t complete without a little food and a cold beer, so come hungry and thirsty to try some of local favorites.  But make sure you leave your alcohol at home.  We will be on site pouring a variety of cold beers for you to cool off with.  Look for us in designated drinking areas and swing by for a cold beer before heading out to listen to your favorite bands!

For many, the mid-August event symbolizes the end of summer and their vacations, and really we can’t think of a better way to close out a spectacular summer!
