First Friday Artwalk

See what’s neon the Steamboat art scene while you socialize with resident artists. Art venues throughout downtown and the mountain stay open from 5-8 p.m. on the first Friday of each month. A map of Artwalk participants is available in the Yampa Valley Arts & Gallery Guide, in brochure racks throughout Steamboat.

Learn about Steamboat’s history from the locals who lived it during the Tread of Pioneers Museum’s Brown Bag Lecture Series. Casual talks reveal life stories from the long-gone mining towns to the personal histories of resident outlaws, ranchers and founding families. Noon on Fridays (July 1-Sept. 2) at Tread of Pioneers Museum. 970-879-2214

Bird Watch

The Yampa Valley’s bird watching delights novice and veteran birders alike. The season starts in May with the International Migratory Bird Day at the Carpenter Ranch, followed by the return of the sandhill cranes in June and the rise of raptors come fall. Go on a weekly bird walk with Yampatika or do it yourself with the Yampa Valley Birding Club’s trail map of the best places to bird watch in Routt County.

Storytime for Grownups

Story is why the library exists and storytime isn’t just for kids. Spend an hour in Library Hall at the Bud Werner Memorial Library listening to contemporary and classic short stories read aloud by some of the Yampa Valley’s finest voices portraying suspense and humor, big characters and intriguing twists of plot. Check Datebook (VG34-VG42) for Storytime dates and times.

market on Sixth Street (June 11-Sept. 10). From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., shop for fresh local and regional produce, baked goods, special sauces, grass-fed beef, locally-raised bison, handcrafted body products, handmade crafts and other Yampa Valley specialties.
