The Scouted Calendar / June 2016

The first day of summer, the longest day of the year, consistently beautiful weather…June has a lot of positive attributes even before you add in all of the wonderful events that will take place in our Scouted cities in the coming weeks. From food festivals to photography exhibitions, here are a few of our favorites:

Aspen, Colorado

June 24-26, the JAS June Experience presents three nights of incredible music at the Benedict Music Tent. With headliners Diana Ross, Sheryl Crow, and Booker T. Jones and Marcus Miller performing in an absolutely stunning setting, this is a musical event not to be missed.

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

For the full month of June, West Coast artist Tracey Adams’s striking and richly textured work will be on display at Ann Connelly Fine Art. The splash exhibition will feature the artist’s latest creations, which consist of a mixture of bees wax encaustic and layers of Japanese papers. {Find local recommendations for what to do and see in Baton Rouge here.}
