Welcome to the 48th Carbondale Mountain Fair!


RAINBOW CONNECTION We are all creatures on this earth, some of us may be more mythical, or braver, or bigger, but ultimately we are human beings. The colors of the rainbow signify that diversity. The rainbow flag has come to represent that diversity within the gay community as a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) pride and LGBTQ social movements. We are at an important time in history when we need to shine a light on this community, as they have had to fight hard for their rights and continue to do so. We are all brothers and sisters. Diversity, though, is a much larger playing field than what this flag has come to represent, and at this years Mountain Fair, in honor of the 40th anniversary release of the original “Muppet Movie”, may we all come together to embrace our differences and celebrate our humanity in this colorful, messy world we call home.


“Someday we’ll find it The rainbow connection... The lovers, the dreamers and me”

The Carbondale Creative District Celebrates Year Three with a KDNK Fundraiser.

August 16, 5-10 pm Join us on August 16th with The Dendrites. The Fourth Street Plaza will be hopping with creatives, craft beers and liquors, local food and live music. The evening will end with the Mountain Fair Slide Show, which will not be seen at the fair due to the early closing.



Thomas Lawley left this earth in 2019 but his spirit remains with us at the fair. Paula Lawley, beloved wife of Thomas has shared an excerpt from his journal:

Check out our web page at This place will help you search the district and find over 250 creatives in the area, find the latest news and happenings and meet the folks that make it happen creatively in the region.

Fair Director - 1985 - 2002

The life and times of Thomas Lawley Wow! Moving to Carbondale was a life changing event for me and my family. Then in 1987 the size small ad in the newspaper for a Mountain Fair Director. It sounded great ! At the job interview, I concluded by saying “you folks don’t know me, but this job was made for me!” A week later I’ve got the job! My first Fair was a blast ! The perfect fit for my character, doing all the things that I love: organizing community events music, artists, performers and having fun while doing it ... Working hard putting, in long hours for, small pay and I loved every day of it ... Meeting new people, making friends, being the Go-to Guy for everything; planning, set up, cleanup. On stage is the MC introducing acts ... I was in my element! Working with so many great people, volunteers, you fun Board of Directors and always making improvements − like creating a backstage ” lounge” for performers and volunteers to rest, hang out and reboot. The fair’s successes grew every year − more people, more revenues, providing more funds for the CCAH’s events like- free music performance in the parks and summer scholarships and artist installations, etc . Looking back on it all I feel so fortunate to be part of an excellent, Community The Mountain Fair and CCAH they are great gifts to us all- and treasures to be taken care of. We would also like to acknowledge John McCormick, who gave so much to this community through the years. He is missed greatly!

Mountain Fair Sustainability • Reuse is the key to reducing our waste and lowering our environmental fair-print! If we love our Mother Earth, it is now time for all of us to take personal responsibility in keeping her healthy. REDUCING and REUSING are important steps toward a zero-waste culture. While composting and recycling help, they are secondary. A BIG THANK-YOU to Pitkin County Landfill for supporting our Green Team efforts.

• Buy a stainless steel cup at the fair, while they last, and reuse it for all your drinking needs. They are great for hot or cold drinks, soups etc.

• How can we all do this at Mountain Fair? Simply by using fewer single-use, disposable cups, plates and utensils. You can accomplish this by being aware of a few Green Team operations:

• Watch Sarah Uhl and local artists paint the sets throughout the fair

• REUSE by bringing your own water bottles, plates, cups and utensils to the fair; wash them and take them home. It’s like camping!

• NEW this year: Bamboo Reusable Utensil Sets. • Composting and recycling are the next best personal steps at the fair. Please be part of this solution, not the problem, by assisting the volunteer-powered Green Team with proper sorting at the waste stations.

• PLEASE REMEMBER: Sort your waste in the well- marked containers at our well-marked waste stations where you will find friendly volunteers. Just about anything you purchase from a food vendor goes in the green compost bins. All food scraps, utensils, plates, bowls, cups and paper products are compostable.

• ALL beer cups are COMPOSTABLE! • We do not sell bottled water at the fair. We have several water stations full of clean mountain water marked with red and white water signs. Please bring your own reusable container and keep it with you. • If you are finished with your program, please promote REUSE by leaving it at the Entrance/Exits for others to use. • We thank our zero-waste community partners: Evergreen Zero Waste, Pitkin County Compost Facility, Town of Carbondale, the Carbondale Environmental Board and YOU for being part of the Green Team! Stop by the Green Team tent to learn more!

• Buy your refreshments at the Sopris Cantina and walk around the park (except the Oasis). The Cantina sells locally made Roaring Fork Beer − Mountain Fair Brew, local vodka from Marble Distillery and our famous Stripped mojitos, as well as Big B’s Hard Ciders. Special Marble Marys will be available Saturday and Sunday mornings. • IDs and wristbands are required for persons drinking alcohol. All coolers will be inspected at the entrances of the fair, and we expect all fairgoers to comply with these regulations.

Features INTRODUCING THE RAINBOW LOUNGE The Rainbow Lounge, located behind the pavilion in the Mystic Mile is a ‘safe’ space to chill, enjoy and learn about the organizations that work with our LGBTQ communities and the awesome people that make it happen. Costumes, watermelon, information and more can be found here. Open to ALL people of ANY age, color and persuasion!

GAY4GOOD The Rocky Mountains chapter of Gay For Good is celebrating one year of promoting positivity and diversity through service projects across the Roaring Fork Valley. In the first year, Gay For Good - Rocky Mountains partnered with 10 organizations including Basalt High School, the Town of Carbondale, Extended Table/Lift Up, Aspen Gay Ski Week, the Independence Pass Foundation, Wilderness Workshop, and others. Volunteers with Gay For Good collected 170 pounds of trash throughout the Town of Carbondale; repaired a riparian dam and planted native vegetation on National Forest land with Wilderness Workshop; and landscaped a peace garden at Basalt High School that was created by a student as a bully-free zone. The leaders of Gay For Good Rocky Mountains formed the chapter to bring more visibility to the vibrant local LGBTQ+ community and provide assistance to non-profits in need of additional volunteer help. Another goal in creating the local organization, says chapter leader Steve Mills, is to connect people in a divided atmosphere. “There’s so much negativity in the world these days,” says Mills, “We wanted to bring people together in a very divided country. What can we do in our own valley that’s giving back during a turbulent time?”


AspenOUT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the Roaring Fork Valley that promotes tolerance, understanding, and diversity through local and national programming, fundraising, and grants for the LGBTQ+ community, their families, and allies, with a focus on youth, education, and community action. They provide activities and outreach throughout the valley with monthly soaks at local hotsprings, Gay Ski Week, sponsorship of valley schools’ Gay-Straight Alliances and more. We thank them for providing the beautiful rainbow flags that grace the fair.

ONE COLORADO One Colorado is the state’s leading advocacy organization dedicated to advancing equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) Coloradans and their families. We effectively advocate for LGBTQ Coloradans and their families by lobbying the General Assembly, executive branch, and local governments on issues like safe schools, transgender equality, relationship recognition, and LGBTQ health and human services.

JANET GORDON A Licensed Professional Counselor who lives and works in Carbondale Colorado. Over the course of her career Janet has specialized in working with survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, trauma, and grief and loss. Six years ago in response to the lack of services available to the LGBTQAI+ community in the Valley, Janet began offering counseling specifically geared to LGBTQAI+ youth, individuals, and their families. Additionally through the generous support of AspenOUT Janet facilitates support groups for LGBTQAI+ youth at schools throughout the valley.

If you’re an individual or family interested in volunteering or an organization interested in partnering with Gay For Good - Rocky Mountains, contact Steve Mills at rockymountains@ If you’re a member of the press, contact Steve Mills at rockymountains@ • 2019 MOUNTAIN FAIR • 27
