Something Different will be something spectacular

This weekend’s Something Different event is going to be that and so much more.

With fabulous entertainment, amazing auction items, and delicious cuisine on which to dine, event guests are sure to go home happy.

World-renowned entertainers Victoria Liljenquist and Joseph Portal are scheduled to sing many of our favorite Broadway tunes while guests dine on their choice of prime rib, fish or vegetarian cuisine.

And, to wrap up the evening’s festivities, guests will have numerous chances to win items such as the Artist Package with a variety of original pieces; a Weekend in Pagosa Package with accommodations, dinner, spa treatment, jewelry and more; and a gorgeous Colorado Furnishings Package.

Can’t attend? You can still be eligible to win many of these items by purchasing drawing tickets at You don’t have to be present to win.

Something Different is a unique fund-raising event that will support the Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters organization’s (RMPAP) 10th anniversary National Show, being held here this summer. An estimated 50 RMPAP artists will travel to Pagosa Springs, paint all-new, never before seen paintings “en plein aire,” then submit up to six pieces for the show, Aug. 5 to 7. It’s an event that is sure to bring recognition, tourists and new business to Pagosa Springs.

Something Different takes place Saturday, April 2, at 6 p.m. at The Pagosa Lodge. Choices for dinner include prime rib, fish and vegetarian. Tickets are $40/person and $75/couple. Tickets, sponsorships and drawing tickets can be purchased at Wild Spirit Gallery, online at, and at the Chamber of Commerce. Guests can also purchase entry and drawing tickets at the door.

Something Different is an important step in bringing new visitors and activities to Pagosa. Thank you for helping us make this event and this summer’s Art Show something special.
