Stories, Travel Ideas and Visitor Information for Your Next Trip to Buena Vista, Colorado

BV Photos for a cause with AVMAD + Boys & Girls Club

Dancers on the Rock - Alex Telthorst -

Whether you’re visiting Buena Vista now or have in the past, you probably took some great photos while here in the amazing scenery described by the town’s name.  Now you can submit two of your favorite Buena Vista area photos for the chance to be included in a fantastic 2013 calendar produced by Arkansas Valley Music and Dance (AVMAD) in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chaffee County (BGCCC).  This “Chaffee County Dances” 2013 Community Calendar will include winning photos that celebrate the joys of the Upper Arkansas Valley while also metaphorically suggesting dancing.
Winners will receive great exposure and 5 free calendars.  Be sure to check out the photo contest details at or pick
up a “Call for Entries” Brochure at the Buena Vista Chamber of Commerce or High Country Bank.  There is no entry fee, and proceeds from calendar sales will benefit AVMAD and BGCCC, both community non-profit organizations.
Please note that the deadline for entry is August 1st!
After an initial selection process, the top photos will be displayed at High Country Bank from August 20 through August 31 for locals and visitors alike to vote for the top twelve.  Visitors in Buena Vista in late August: stop by High Country Bank and add your votes!
If you don’t have any photos to submit, then plan to buy your souvenir and holiday gift calendars starting October 1st.  Vendors and mail-order options will be listed at
The exciting project is sponsored by Arkansas Valley Publishing, Aspen Leaf Print & Copy, Buena Vista Dental Care, and High Country Bank.
