Glenwood Springs plans welcome celebration for first Rocky Mountaineer arrival

Colorado mountain community Glenwood Springs is set to welcome Rocky Mountaineer guests on the debut service from Denver, Colorado to Moab, Utah.

The Colorado mountain town  known for its hot springs and outdoor adventures will accommodate Rocky Mountaineer guests on an overnight stay during the Rockies to the Red Rocks two-day rail journey.

Glenwood Springs has been served by a railroad since 1887.

To celebrate the first arrival of Rocky Mountaineer passengers in Glenwood Springs, the community has scheduled a grand welcome.

There will be a festival on 7th Street, adjacent to the historic train station including a brief welcome by local dignitaries, live music, dancing, food and art vendors with additional surprises in store.

Festivities begin from 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm, with the estimated arrival of the train and passengers at 5:00 pm.

Rocky Mountaineer will launch the route with a preview season of 56 departures across 14 weeks from August 15 to November 19, 2021.

Rocky Mountaineer has worked closely with staff of Visit Glenwood Springs, the city's destination marketing organization.

"As a destination, we have been preparing to welcome guests of the Rockies to the Red Rocks route, and now invite the community and region to join us in the grand welcome celebration," said Director of Tourism Promotion, Lisa Langer.
