Red Rocktoberfest- Canyon to Canyon 

Street Celebration

Music, Art, Beer & Food


Take a journey starting at Willow Canyon to Canyon Lodge.  The “Canyon to Canyon” merchant mile will be filled with German food and beverages, live music, art displays, book and poetry readings, and blends of Germany meets the Southwest. There will be dancing, games and activities for kids- it'll be fun for the whole family! 

A ‘passport’ brochure will be given to help navigate the artistic corridor and a shuttle service will be available for those who prefer to not walk the merchant mile. There will also be pumpkin carving happening at Honey’s Market. Fall will be in full celebration throughout the community. Enjoy a free wagon ride beginning at Parry Lodge and Mountain America Credit Union (tips appreciated) from 5-7 p.m. Wagon rides are one-way, so you may get on at either location and be dropped off at the other. 

There will be country dancing at the Coral Hills Dental parking lot from 8 pm- 10 pm and instruction will be provided by Danny and Natalie Button.
