There's no need to be bored this weekend!

Just to highlight a few fun things, the Black Canyon Quilt Show is back, after a years-long hiatus because of the pandemic. 

I can't  so much as thread a needle, myself (that gene skipped me), but I have watched family members quilt and it is sheer art, not just skill. 

You can check out the amazing work of your friends and neighbors at the Montrose Pavilion Friday and Saturday (July 15  and 16) from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., and on Sunday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. (July 17).  Admission is $5. Read all about it here.

You can also get a taste of the Old West out at the Museum of the Mountain West this weekend. Ranch and Farm Heritage Days is Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

 Head out east of town to Miami Road and US 50 and enjoy music, activities, history demos and more, plus on Saturday, the Ghost River Band from 2 - 5 p.m. Tickets $0 to $15, at the gate or online, museumofthemountainwest.org.

The museum grounds themselves, with many thousands of artifacts and historic buildings, are always worth a peek. 

As always, you can keep up on local happenings in our Coming Up events calendar, which publishes most days in print and online.
