Friends, Family, Community and the Magic of Live Music
For three or four hours, eight summertime Friday evenings, life is just like it should be. Babies don’t cry, dogs don’t bark, and wise elders feel nineteen again. The Muse visits the musicians pretty much every night and dances when the spirit moves her. We don’t know why this all happens here, we’re just glad it does.
July26 Wood Belly
Winner of the Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition (2018), Wood Belly mixes it up with hard driving bluegrass, multi-layered instrumentals, pop-oriented hook-laden tunes and soaring vocals throughout. Wood Belly’s style is warm and true, occasionally haunting and the next moment light and uplifting. Rooted in bluegrass tradition and planted solidly in contemporary innovation.
This 4-piece, high-energy, get ‘em out on the dance floor string band from Denver is steeped in Americana roots, with vocal harmonies that are high, lonesome, and tight. Whether lightning-fast or mountain mellow, Chain Station will satisfy a picky old-timer and delight fans of newgrass, a delicate balance indeed. Pure Mountain Music!

There is excellent food, cold drinks, lots of children’s activities, quality arts, crafts, sundries, and, because of our awesome sponsors, this event is FREE!
Rules? We don’t need no stinking rules! Well, actually we do, for courtesy and legal reasons.
PLEASE do not bring alcohol to the Faire—it is illegal and just not faire to the folks bringing you this free event. Alcohol sales fund the Faire!
PLEASE do not carry alcohol outside the Faire boundaries—this is also illegal
PLEASE do not bring your own chairs or blankets anywhere under the tents or under the pavilion
PLEASE park in legal spaces only or you will get towed
PLEASE be courteous of our neighbors! Stay out of yards and gardens and do not leave trash or bodily fluids

Q: Can I bring alcohol to the Faire?

A: Yes, but the chairs CANNOT be set up under the tents or the pavilion.
Q: Where is First Aid?
