We are excited to announce that the VCBA will be sponsoring Pioneer Weekend for the first time ever!
Calling All Vail Pioneers!
Save the Date
If you lived in Vail prior to 1983, dust off those cowboy hats, old photos and break out the dancing shoes for a fun-filled weekend of reminiscing and catching up. We are busy planning a great weekend full of parties and activities.
We know we might not have everyone’s contact information so please reach out to us if you need to update your information. And please pass along to anyone who is a Vail Pioneer and might not have received this email.
The Vail Chamber and Business Association is honored to continue this tradition, with the help of Master of Ceremonies – Packy Walker! We will be sending out a more formal invitation in the upcoming weeks. It will include the schedule of events, pricing, and lodging discounts with our community partners.
