With the Rocky Mountains in our backyard, Colorado has a vivid history of mountain music festivals. There’s just something about etching tracks down the mountain and finishing the day with good music and a cold beer that can’t be beaten. Today, Vail has added a festival of their own to the mix. Powabunga, as it’s been dubbed, going down March 22 and 23, will be an immersive mountain, music and arts festival taking place in Ford Park. Featuring ZHU, Bob Moses, Boombox, Justin Jay’s Fantastic Voyage and many more, organizers aim to highlight Colorado’s vibrant mountain culture and the allure of  Vail Valley. Besides the two nights of music in Ford Park, attendees can expect large pop-up art installations, afterparties and a “Costume-Ski Extravaganza.”

The concert portion of the festival, held in Ford Park, will begin at 4 p.m. and go until 10 p.m. each of the nights. Then, following the performances, Powabunga will host afterparties from the likes of Justin Jay and Bob Moses (Club Set) amongst others in various venues (TBD). On the flip side, the “Costume-Ski Extravaganza” will begin at noon Saturday, March 23 at Black Forest Ski Race Course on Vail Mountain. The costume required event invites fans to get creative to win prizes like skis, snowboard, the Epic Pass, and more.
