In contrast to the hot licks and hyper tempos of RockyGrass, the mellower moods of Folks Fest are the perfect antidote to relax and enjoy the warm Colorado sun. Claim your space with a blanket or tarp, set down your low-back chair, and settle in for unforgettable days and nights of music. For these 3 magical days, Festivarians from around the world get a taste of what being a "Lyons local" is all about. From morning 'til after 10pm each night, the world's most inspired songwriters share their songs and stories, projected through the best sound system at any festival in the country.
Pack a picnic -- you're welcome to bring in food and drinks, just no alcohol or glass. Or enjoy a wide variety of food options from food vendors (fish tacos to ice cream, dumplings to artisan pizza), as well as New Belgium beer, wine, and free filtered local water. As the sun sets over the Rocky Mountain Foothills, the campgrounds come alive with Festivarians from around the country eager to sing their latest creations or share in the creation of new ones with new friends. Whether you are a musician or a music lover, camps from around Colorado and around the country welcome you in with a hearty hug.
