The nature of a place like Vail Valley, that has been amply blessed with natural beauty and augmented by human creativity, is that people want to be here. And they want to be here when the winter snows are falling, when the summer sun is calling, when the aspens are changing color and when the meadows are full of spring flowers. So, this place is a natural milieu for annual Vail events to sprout up. Every month of the year, visitors and locals can join in annual Vail events festivals that celebrate music, art, holidays, rodeos, kids and nature. If food's your thing, you can turn up the flavor almost any month of the year with BBQ, chili cookoffs, restaurant weeks and more. There's even a chocolate chip cookie competition! Hey, who do you have to know to judge that one?! There are annual events that focus on cars, on films, on snow and everything you can do on it or with it, on helping to clean up the environment, on dogs catching discs, on wine, beer and spirits and…and…and…. Yep, honestly something for everyone, every taste, every sensibility.

Phew, you kinda need to pump up your stamina just to keep up with all the sporting Vail annual events!
