New Castle Rides and Reggae Festival

About this event

The New Castle Rides and Reggae Festival is a celebration of trail running, mountain biking, music, and community. Rides and Reggae includes a Saturday full of fun including live music from local and national reggae influenced bands, MTB and trail running races for all ability levels on the Colorow and Highlands Trail Networks, and a beer garden. 

Not into MTB racing or trail running? No problem! Just ride your bike up to VIX Ranch Park and link up with other like minded people for a group ride. Not into mountain biking at all?  That's ok too. Head to VIX Ranch Park and toss a blanket on the ground and take in the beautiful views from Castle Valley Ranch while listening to amazing live music.

Kids 12 and under are free!
