This time of year we all start making plans to attend some of the fantastic events that happen all around Summit County. We get to choose from events that include music, races, food & beer, and an all around good time. Due to the pandemic, some of Frisco’s traditional June events will be happening later in the summer, or for a few, not at all. The Summit Daily put out a quick list of how the pandemic will impact events in Frisco.
- Frisco Town Cleanup Day, originally scheduled for May 16, is now a weeklong event from May 9-17. Cleaning supplies will be available at self-serve locations and participants are encouraged to post photos of themselves cleaning using the hastag #FriscoCleanUp for a chance to win prizes.
- Run the Rockies Road Half Marathon and 10K, originally scheduled for June 6, will be postponed to August or September, depending on permitting.
- Rock the Dock, the Frisco Bay Marina celebration scheduled for June 6, has been canceled for 2020.
- The Timberline Cruiser Regatta has been postponed until Sept. 12.
- The Mountain Goats Kids’ Trail Running Series is scheduled to occur on June 16 and 30. The races might move to August if needed.
- The Colorado BBQ Challenge, scheduled for June 19-20, will instead happen Sept. 25-26. The Bacon Burner 6K is scheduled for Sept. 26. The town is planning for a smaller festival that focuses on local bands and less close activities such as face painting and chef demos. Because of the change of dates, Frisco Fall Fest likely will be canceled, and the Fall Local’s Party and Brunch might be rescheduled.
- Concerts in the Park, a series of nine shows that starts June 25 and goes through Aug. 20, benefitting local nonprofits, is planned to remain as scheduled with social distancing measures encouraged.
Things are changing almost daily as we all adjust to the latest Coronavirus information. We look forward to enjoying some of the amazing events in Frisco and the rest of the county this summer.
