Music in the Mountains a huge boost for local economy

Study finds the festival generated about $2.3 million for La Plata County in 2016
An audience watches an orchestra during Music in the Mountains at Purgatory Resort. The festival is a huge boost to the local economy and had a direct economic impact of $2.3 million in La Plata County in 2016, according to a study conducted by RRC Associates, a market research firm specializing in tourism.
Concertgoers listen to music outside the main festival tent at Purgatory. The “Grass Pass” is an economical option for many attendees, who can enjoy the music from the lawn outside the festival tent for $5 per concert. Last summer, about 6,400 people attended Music in the Mountains.
