The Town of Eagle and Vail Valley Foundation announced that the Alpine Bank ShowDown Town concert series would be cancelled in 2020.
The Alpine Bank ShowDown Town concert series in the Eagle Town Park has been provided as a free service due to a wide array of partnerships: the event has been operated as a project of the nonprofit Vail Valley Foundation, in partnership with the Town of Eagle, title sponsored by Alpine Bank, and supported by local and regional sponsors, since its inception 24 years ago.
The limited capacity of the venue under public health orders, the open nature of the venue, and the need for a longer period of advance planning to find funding, security, staffing, and to develop quality logistical planning, were all reasons cited by organizers in deciding to forego the 2020 season.
“We recognize and understand how much these concerts are loved and appreciated by our community and our visitors, but this is not something we are comfortable moving forward with in 2020,” said Brian Hall. “We are already planning for a great season in 2021 and look forward to bring it back next year.”
Organizers said they were looking forward to bringing the free programming back to the community in 2021.
ShowDown Town is a free concert series hosted on Thursdays throughout the summer at Eagle Town Park. The Town of Eagle presents this popular weekly event. Picnics are welcome!
