Western on Washington!

April 6, 2019

This coming Friday, April 12th, don your Wild West best and stroll among Golden’s finest saloons during the Western on Washington. This is great community event: it’s a fund-raiser to fund new playground equipment for Mitchell Elementary.

Tickets start at just $30 and include libations and chuck wagon tastes at the Buffalo Rose, the Old Capitol Grill & Smokehouse, Miners Saloon, Ace Hi Tavern, Jolynn’s Food & Spirits, Barrels & Bottles Brewery, Colorado +49 Cidery & Pub, and the Golden Hotel/Bridgewater Grill.

After all the gallivanting, settle in at the new Buffalo Rose for a concert by 2018 Telluride Bluegrass Band Contest Winner Wood Belly. Learn more and buy tickets….
