2018 Steamboat Free Summer Concert Series Lineup
Summertime in Steamboat Springs is a truly magical experience with endless outdoor options. While most flee to the mountains or lakes to get in their weekend camping, many choose to stick around. Why? For the Free Concert Series! Since 1993 locals and tourists alike show up by the thousands to Howelsen Hill; throw a blanket on the floor, grab a drink and get ready for an awesome free concert! This year Dr’s Jim and Wendy McCreight are proud to announce their partnership with the Keepin’ it free concert Series. This partnership was a “no-brainer” for the Doctors as they have been concert goers since the early days and love how these concert series bring not only families together but also our little mountain community. Below we have listed some important info for all those who plan on attending.

Best place to view the free concert from:
Near the Locals lounge– Why? Your out of the way from pedestrian traffic, close to the action, and away from the portable toilets
Far back hill– Why? It is not loud and you have one of the best views of everything
Middle near the “watering-hole– Why? It is where you will find most of the little ones and respective families.
What food to get?
For the Kiddos– After they eat up their hotdog from the local hotdog stand they can enjoy a nice shaved ice
For the Adults– Bud Light is a food, right? or how about a local brew from butcherknife brewing
What other things you should know before you go.
- No animals allowed
- No smoking allowed
- Just because it is 85+ degrees when the concert starts does not mean that will be the temperature when the concert is over. **Always pack a sweater or a light jacket!!!!!
- If you are trying to avoid an Ex, or maybe your boss…. Don’t go… It is impossible to hide! 😉
