The Holden/Marolt Hoedown is set for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Holden/Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum.
The party includes barbecue from Hickory House, beer from the Roaring Fork Beer Co., live bluegrass by the Smuggler Mountain Boys and such children’s activities as potato-branding, butter-churning and a scavenger hunt. The Fishwit Award — honoring Freddie Fisher — will be given to Aspen’s best “letter to the editor” writer, nominated by The Aspen Times and Aspen Daily News.
Tickets are $20 for adults for admission, dinner and a beer, $10 for kids 12 and under for admission and dinner. Tickets are available at aspenhistory.org or the day of at the event.
Parking is limited so attendees are encouraged to ride their bikes or walk to the Marolt Open Space. Guests can take the Castle Creek pedestrian bridge or drive across the Castle Creek Bridge to the property, which is located just across both of these access points at the entrance to Aspen.
The Hoedown is supported by Alpine Bank, Aspen Public Radio, Valley Fine Art, Hickory House and Roaring Fork Beer Co.
