Get your dancing shoes ready! The 5th Annual Gate City Music Festival (GCMF) is coming our way. The annual GCMF is a fun, praised event that will be taking place on Labor Day Weekend, Friday through Sunday, Sept. 4-5.
There's a reason we're feeling so high, and it's because The Bellamy Brothers will be headlining at the gorgeous Historic Shuler Theater on Sunday evening. As always, Will and Crystal Yates will be here to kick off the headliner, including, Colfax Reunion.
The Bellamy Brothers
The whole family can partake in fun activities throughout the weekend, and enjoy free live music on Historic First Street. Catch the musical acts of Secondhand, Sister Mary Mayhem, CappTon Reid, Candace Vargas, and NortherN 505 Band. Not only will there be live music, but unique vendors, delicious food and drinks, and a DJ present downtown.
Raton is located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Northeastern New Mexico along I-25, which makes for the perfect wild west backdrop for concerts, plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities, and a spontaneous Labor Day Weekend getaway. Come as a stranger, and leave as family.
To purchase tickets for the headlining show, go to GateCityMusicFestival.com or contact Brenda Ferri at (575) 445-2052.
