Letter: Thanks to wildland supporters

On Saturday, 300 people from throughout the community showed up for the Wildfest celebration at the Other Side Ranch in Old Snowmass. We at the Wilderness Workshop would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the many supporters, sponsors, vendors, performers and volunteers who came together to make the day a heartwarming success. Wildfest is our annual friendraiser for all outdoor enthusiasts to take a step back and celebrate our common love of the wonderful public lands surrounding the valley.

So many people made Wildfest a success, starting with Kate McBride and the Other Side Ranch for donating a fantastic venue. Thanks to Gravity Productions for organizing the event and keeping everything running smoothly and artfully. Thank you to our sponsors and businesses in the community that made this happen: Alpine Bank, Marble Distillery, Crystal River Meats, Aspen Sotheby’s, Bristlecone Mountain Sports, Reese Henry, Roaring Fork Beer Co., Michael Fuller Architects, Ken Ransford, Blazing Adventures, Sandy’s Office Supply, Carbondale Beer Works, Gran Farnum, Bonfire Coffee, Sweet Coloradough and The Aspen Times.

Thank you to the professional musicians, performers, panelists and chefs whose contributions made Wildfest a day to remember. And, of course, thank you to all the wildland lovers out there who came to show their support and enjoy a day in the sun. We’ll see you next year!
