The Town of Winter Park will be holding a ribbon cutting celebration this Thursday, June 22 to commemorate the spectacular new Hideaway Park Stage located in the heart of downtown Winter Park. As part of the festivities, Colorado’s own beloved Big Head Todd & The Monsters will play a free concert from 6-8 p.m., kicking off a jam-packed summer of events and shows.
The permanent stage, designed by Semple Brown, is a sprawling 2,600 square feet in size, is handicap accessible, and will be one of the most striking outdoor concert venues in the state, with a beautiful concrete and stone structure capped by a distinctive white canopy designed to emulate snow drifts. The front of the stage cascades seamlessly down to the seating bowl, ensuring clear sightlines whether you’re sitting in the first row or the last. The stage also includes a climate-controlled green room that opens onto a backstage plaza looking out on Vasquez Creek through oversized operable glass walls, an added amenity sure to attract the world’s best acts to Winter Park. It’s only fitting that one of those acts, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, will be the first to take the new stage on an historic and fun-filled night of music.
Those looking to stay overnight and enjoy the festivities can take advantage of a special Winter Park Resort lodging deal, which features a 15% discount with rooms starting as low as $169 a night. It’s also easy to make it an extended weekend with plenty of activities like downhill mountain biking at Trestle Bike Park, the state’s longest alpine slide, and other family-friendly fun at Winter Park Resort, located just two miles from downtown Winter Park. In fact, the entire Fraser Valley is replete with things to do, including hiking, rafting, golfing, and is just 30 miles from the west entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park.
