Not only does Vail host the World Championships of Pond Skimming, but Vail’s end of the season events are some of the biggest at any ski resort; FREE concerts, après celebrations and late night parties. The line-up for the concerts this year is pretty heavy hitting with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals returning for their second year in a row. You can also see Thievery Corporation, JJ Grey & Mofro, and Iration. Following in the wake of success of last year’s “Spring Back to Vail” and the “Bud Light Street Beat” free concert series, Bud Light is coming in full force with après parties and after hour events for those looking to celebrate spring break style.

If you are anxious to get to Vail earlier, check out the upcoming Vail Film Festival. Named “One of the Top 10 Destination Festivals” in the U.S., the film festival takes place March 29 – April 1 and guarentees four full days of film screenings, music, and galas. This is also a great opportunity for aspiring filmmakers, because the Colorado Film Institute brings together panel discussions filled with industry experts.

Whether you want to party or get a cultural fix, Vail has you covered this spring! To book your Vail vacation visit or to talk to one of our Destination Experts 1-800-754-9378.
