The series will run for 10 weeks every Wednesday, wrapping up on Aug. 10, and will feature a mix of local talent and touring artists each week.

“It’s great news that artists are able to tour across the country again this summer and we’re delighted to welcome a wonderfully diverse line-up to our Summer Kicks stage pairing them with some fine local artists for the pleasure of our Golden community and visitors,” writes Kicking Horse Culture, the organization behind the popular series.
