The Chaffee County Economic Recovery Team, the city of Salida and the town of Buena Vista are partnering with local event organizations to form Chaffee for Chaffee. Chaffee for Chaffee is a series of events created to fund relief for full-time Chaffee County creatives and small businesses through physically distanced and socially-responsible events. We understand that creatives and small businesses are not only at the center of what makes Chaffee County so unique but are also very worried about their livelihoods during this unprecedented time.
In our first effort to garner support, we are hosting a virtual relief concert on May 22 at 6:00 PM streamable through facebook.com/nowthisiscolorado. Make sure that you grab some dinner from a local restaurant, settle in at home and tune in. We will present one of a kind mini-concerts from some of Chaffee County’s most talented musicians recorded for this event from their backyard, their front porch, or their favorite hiking destination. There will be demonstrations by Chaffee County artists as they share their art and unique commercials from many local businesses as a part of the relief concerts. If you are a local missing your favorite band, a guest that hasn't been able to visit or someone who cares for Salida and Buena Vista; this event is for you. Viewers will be directed on how to donate to the Chaffee for Chaffee Virtual Relief Concert participants through the Salida Council for the Arts during the stream. We encourage you to watch, donate and share.
