Keystone Neighbourhood Events: Warren Station & Festivals – January 4th, 2022
As we start the year 2022, we can’t help but feel it is a bit like the movie Groundhog’s Day.
COVID-19 is keeping us on our event toes and causing the Keystone Neighbourhood to reassess the indoor events planned through the end of the winter. Here at the KNC we are focused on the safety and health of our entire community. According to the Colorado Sun on Dec. 30th, Summit County has one of the highest per capita incidence rates of COVID-19 in the country and cases continue to skyrocket. As we reflect on this data, we have decided to pause our Warren Station indoor events through the end of January. Several of the events our team is working to reschedule and feel confident that we’ll be able to bring you the line-up almost in its entirety just not necessarily as planned when we went into the winter season. We are hopeful that the Omicron variant wave makes its way through Summit quickly and we can return to hosting events as quickly as possible. For now, we are focused on staff and guest safety as well as keeping in mind the overall safety of the entire county and state. We want people to be able to keep skiing & riding as well as we want kids to be able to stay in school.
With the community of Summit and Colorado in mind – we ask that you take a minute to reflect on the tragedy Colorado’s most destructive fire, the Marshall Fire, and the impact that the disaster has had on Boulder County and the entire state. Almost everyone who lives here knows someone who has lost all that they have in the fire. One of our most beloved Keystone Festival vendors lost their home, business, and all they own in the fire that swept through Boulder County on December 31st. We are asking that you take a moment to review the ways in which you can assist the many victims of the fires. Click here for a list of ways to assist: Boulder Office of Emergency Management OR here: Colorado Gives.
If you have been to a Keystone Festival you have seen our friends, Filosophy, set up in the center of the event grounds. Our dear friend and event partner Katie Sullivan lost her home, all her personal belongings along with her entire business’s inventory in the fire. We would like to highlight their loss and ask if you are able, to help them rebuild from Colorado’s most destructive fire in state history by contributing to their GoFundMe Page Here.
As always, we appreciate your support and understanding as we continue to navigate the pandemic. Until we are back to our normal event schedule, please, get outside, hit the slopes and you and your loved ones stay well.
