A SOUTHERN COLORADO BLUEGRASS AND CULINARY ARTS FESTIVAL
Foot-stomping bluegrass music, cooking demonstrations, living history activities and delectable food and wine tastings, have made this event a regional favorite.
This year’s bands include Lizzy Plotkin and Natalie Spears, Tibet, and the Wooks, 1st place winners of the 2016 RockyGrass Band Contest .
Closing out this year’s festival is the smokin’-hot Americana band, the Quebe Sisters from Texas. “One thing is for sure, you don’t see a group like the Quebe Sisters come along every day,” famed Opry announcer Eddie Stubbs told listeners on his own show on Nashville’s WSM. “Give them your undivided attention, and if you’re not already, you too, will become a fan.”
Sample food from more than two dozen of Colorado Springs’ finest restaurants. Where else can you sip a vintage wine, listen to bluegrass melodies and enjoy a gorgeous view of Pikes Peak? Bring chairs or a blanket for seating at the concert. The festival will be held rain or shine. All proceeds benefit Rock Ledge Ranch Site.
