If you are going to be living around the Fort Collins

area this summer and looking for some outdoor

concerts, then head up the Poudre Canyon to Mishawaka.

Mishawaka offers an intimate outdoor setting were

several major regional and national musical acts

perform every summer. The stage is placed perfectly in

front of the river and tucked away inside of the

Poudre Canyon, just off of the road. The venue is very

personal. You can see everything that is going on

onstage and you never get far enough away to need

binoculars like almost all the other outdoor


The concerts will start on May 9 this year, with K9

Unit kicking off the summer concerts. Yonder Mountain

String band will be performing two nights up there on

une 7 and 8. Blues Virtuoso, John Hiatt will be

playing on June 27. The two-day Poudre Blue Grass

Festival will be Aug. 2 and 3. The Dirty Dozen Brass

Band will be on Aug. 15. There are several other

acts scheduled and to see for yourself go to

www.mishawakaconcerts.com .

To get there head North on U.S. 287 for about eight miles

outside of Fort Collins then take Colorado 14 up the

Poudre Canyon for 13 miles and it’s on the right.

It’s great to get out of the concrete jungle and up

to the mountains in the summer. Go up there and enjoy

>the fresh air with some live music.
