Recognition of the Creative Work in the North Fork Valley

The North Fork Valley, which includes Paonia, has been recognized by the state as one of only seven creative districts in Colorado.  That's due to the work of many individuals who call the Valley their home.  Their work is not just painting beautiful pictures or making great music.  They create wonderful food on local farms, orchards, and ranches.  Then master chefs use those products to nourish the body much as the artisans and musicians nourish the soul.

The Bross Hotel invites you to visit Paonia and enjoy all that the valley has to offer - beautiful surroundings, fine food and wine, good music, and art in a variety of media.  Reservations can be made online or by calling 970-527-6776.
