Bohemian Nights raptures old town fort collins

Old Town, Fort Collins, Colo.
In 2010, Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest will once again feature the first-rate talent of Colorado musicians coming from around the state to perform during the three-day, free, outdoor music extravaganza. As much a street fair as it is a music festival, Bohemian Nights is unparalleled in scope among free festivals. Though centered around Colorado acts, the headliners each year carry some big clout and big crowds. Last year, Melissa Etheridge’s set drew an estimated 15,000 people to Old Town.

YOU NEED TO KNOW: Getting 15,000 people in Old Town is a bit of an accomplishment and one that won’t happen if everyone tries to drive. Carpooling, biking and good old fashioned walking will greatly help alleviate some congestion.
