Backcountry Ball

October 11, 2019 (6-9 pm)

Presented by: Summit Huts Association

Every autumn, Summit Huts’ supporters, friends, and mountain kin gather to partake in an informal yet rousing coming-of-winter party known as the Backcountry Ball. This year will be the 18th edition of the Ball, a tenure that speaks to the strong backcountry community associated with Summit Huts as well as that community’s desire to have a good time. The Ball is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Summit Huts, which people attend to catch up with old friends, drink a few frosty microbrews or pop, enjoy a hearty meal, and check out some of the best ski and outdoors gear known to man (and woman).

Pre-sale tickets for the Backcountry Ball are $35 for adults and $10 for kids. Tickets can be purchased through the SHA website until Wednesday, October 9th. Tickets at the door will be available starting at 6 P.M. on Friday, October 11th for $40 for adults and $10 for kids.

An Evening with David Sedaris

October 25, 2019 (7:30 9:30 pm)

Presented by: Breck Create at the Riverwalk Center

Comedian, NPR humorist, and best-selling author David Sedaris comes to the Riverwalk Center for an evening of satire and riveting conversation. With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent humor writers. He slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness with great skill, proving he is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

David Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, each of which became a bestseller. Sedaris’ engagement in Breckenridge is in support of his latest book, Theft by Finding, a compilation of Sedaris’ favorite diary entries over the years.

This event will feature all-new readings of his work, including a Q&A session and a book signing before and after the show.
