Cover Rock Festival & Bravo! Performances This Weekend in Avon

By Caitlin Row Stoner

We're deep into summer event season around the Vail Valley! That means visitors and locals can expect lots of fun in the sun, lots of craft beer flowing and lots of live music.

Weather this week is going to be beautiful. Temperatures will hover mostly in the high 70s with a lot of sunshine. Evening rain on Sunday and Monday is predicted. We need the rain, so that's good news. It's pretty dry out there, folks, so please be careful. Fire restrictions are in place. Click here for the 10-day forecast.

With that in mind, here are my picks for Vail Valley This Week.
