Ouray County Mud Fest
Ouray County Mud Fest is a spring celebration of everything MUD! Mud Fest starts off on Friday at 4;00 PM with Mud Jam at the Ouray Community Center featuring the David Starr Band and guest pourers from the Mountain Air Music Committee.
Mud fest activities continue at the Ouray County Fairgrounds on Saturday, beginning at 9:00 AM.
If watching (or particpating in) 4X4 vehicles navigating obstacle courses and racing in the mud, motorcycles doing crazy things in the mud, antique tractors pulling in the mud, and other muddy activities sound exciting, then this is your time to come have fun in Ouray County! This is a great opportunity for participants and spectators, young and old, to get down and
dirty all weekend long.
