970 AvonFest was born out of our Founder’s (Daniel Cassidy) love for endurance sports and love for the town of Avon, Colorado. Daniel and Major League Triathlon have hosted events in Avon since 2017, however, Daniel often refers to Avon as his “second home”. Having grown up visiting Avon since he was a young child he had always dreamed of hosting a signature event for the town. While it started with two successful seasons of Major League Triathlon in Avon, they knew they could do more and create something bigger for the Town of Avon.
970 AvonFest was created to celebrate everything that endurance sports and the Town of Avon have to offer. It will be a true showcase of the town’s World Class venues (such as Nottingham Park), the second to none hospitality and the tremendous support of the small but incredible Town. The event will continue to feature Major League Triathlon’s Olympians and World Class pros, however, 970 AvonFest is more than that. It is a 3 day festival weekend celebrating endurance sports. 970 will offer amateur triathlon events, amateur cycling events, amateur running events, two days of free concerts, an interactive expo, food and alcohol, kid zones and an experience that you will never forget. Please join us for the inaugural event and come see everything Avon has to offer.
