About Our Concerts

The Rio Grande Scenic Railroad is proud to present its seventh season of the Mountain Rails Live summer concert series. If this is your first time riding you are in for a rare treat. Our mountaintop concert location, Fir Summit Amphitheater, was named one of USA Today’s “10 Best Outdoor Concert Venues You  Shouldn’t Miss” last year.

Upon leaving the San Luis Valley, the train ride begins a steady climb on the steep grade of the Rocky Mountains with wildlife sightings, tight curves past rock croppings  and sweeping panoramic  views of pines and aspens. Want to get up close to the artists during the ride up? A limited number of seats are sold for Diamond Class where guests can sit in the lounge of our restored Club cars to enjoy a personal performance and conversation with the artists on the roundtrip ride. You'll know we're almost there when the train rounds a wide turn through Horseshoe Curve before arriving at the 9,400-foot-high destination.

Once reaching Fir Summit Amphitheater, guests will be treated to a one-of-a-kind concert setting in a mountain meadow set with a custom boxcar stage. Delicious BBQ lunches and regional craft brews are available for purchase while the band sets up. This year’s lineup of award-winning country and western folk will be sure to please everyone in your group with a new artist each weekend from June to September.  Come for one act or come for the whole series but don’t let this train leave the station without you!
• Our guests can board from either the depot in Alamosa or the platform in Fort Garland for those coming from New Mexico or the I-25 interstate corridor.
• Fir Summit Amphitheater at t 9,400 ft. elevation is powered entirely by wind and solar energy.
• Bring a camping chair or reserve a chair for a small fee. There are picnic tables and limited covered awnings on a first come, first served basis. Coolers are not permitted.
