Events on the Mesa
ANNUAL MELTDOWN ON THE MESA
From 2014-19, Durango Mesa Park hosted Meltdown on the Mesa, a local grassroots Durango music event and fundraiser. This daylong festival hints at the positive impact these types of events can have on the community and the economy.
Working in partnership with Colorado High School Cycling League, which is part of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association, Durango Mesa Park created a Durango mountain bike course for regional races and the 2018 and 2019 state mountain biking championships. High school athletes from throughout the state participated, including those from Animas and Durango high schools. The Durango events provided an economic boost to the city. Fort Lewis College held weekend campus tours and information sessions, plus hosted the League’s end-of-season dinner enjoyed by over 1,000 athletes and their families. In the future, Durango Mesa Park will serve as a premier athletic venue for world-class training and competition.
