Wintertime has arrived. The activity level in Paonia may have slowed, but it's definitely not dead. There are lots of reasons to spend time in the North Fork Valley. Let me tell you about a few things happening at the Blue Sage Center for the Arts.
1. Druha Trava Concert - The popular Czech bluegrass band returns for its fifth (?) concert in the past decade. Nov. 5, 8 pm.
2. Holiday Art Fair - An opportunity to shop for unique artistic gifts. Dec. 2 (3-8 pm) and Dec. 3 (9am-5pm)
3. Gingerbread Festival - Enter your decorated gingerbread house in the competition. Need some tips on decorating? Attend a workshop with award-winning Jennifer Dunn on Nov. 12th and 19th. (Call the Blue Sage for particulars- 970-527-7243) Then enter your creation in the Dec. 10th competition.
And, that's just a few things happening at the Blue Sage. My next blog will highlight some other activities in the valley.
