Chama Music Festival

For most of July, Chama features a festival that includes almost every type of music from chamber groups to jug bands, gospel, and cabaret performances. The festival is held at the Chama Valley Community Center and, in the past, has included a scenic mountain concert in Osier, with a train ride included.

City Slickers Adventure

This unique tour combines travel on horseback, a wagon ride, camping and a return train ride to and from the town of Osier. The "City Slickers Package" involves taking the train to the top of the mountain, where you are met by cowboys who conduct the trail ride or give you a wagon ride to a camp on a wide mountain meadow. There are private tents and several buildings at the site, including a dining hall – however, evening meals are cooked around a campfire. The days are spent hiking, fishing, or just relaxing. Two nights are spent at camp before returning to Osier.

OspreyFest - July 11-13 at Heron Lake State Park.

Other annual events include the Chama Chili Ski Classic on President's Day weekend and the Snowball Balloon Rally in February.
