A diverse lineup of regional and national bands perform in the Park Bandstand funded and built in partnership between CREA, Cortez Electric and the City of Cortez. Bring the family, bring a friend, bring a blanket or chairs, and enjoy the music. Explore a variety of vendor booths and sample delicious bites, brews and beverages from local eateries throughout the evening.

In support of LISTEN CORTEZ, we’re excited to have KRTZ with us again this year for Live Remote Broadcasts from the Park.

Make a day of it! Help support local businesses by visiting our many retail shops and restaurants while in Cortez.

Voted Readers Choice Best Arts & Crafts Fair by Colorado Country Life, Third Thursday gets bigger and better each season with hundreds of community members and visitors joining together to celebrate Cortez.
