Live music, food vendors and drinks, all while surrounded by the divine scenery of Rochester's Secret Garden. Every year the Rochester Hotel hosts its Secret Garden Concert series to raise money for nonprofit organizations in the Durango area. This year's series at The Rochester Hotel kicks off June 26.
Summer Concert Series
The concert series benefits the nonprofit community and promotes Durango’s talented music scene by featuring a different nonprofit and musical talent every Wednesday night. There will be a bar and food vendors at each event. We encourage you to attend as many concerts as you can since all proceeds are split between participating nonprofits at the end of the summer. Come out & support your community organizations in Durango!
The Secret Garden at The Rochester Hotel
Tucked away behind The Rochester, the Secret Garden typically offers a quiet space in the middle of Durango to relax and refresh. On occasion, the Secret Garden is the site for exciting events and concerts like the Summer Concert Series. It is a picturesque, back-yard style venue perfect for gathering small crowds. Guests are surrounded by beautiful historic bricking, green trees and bright colored flowers while they listen to local musicians and support a good cause.
