Bluegrass coming to Palisade

Colorado’s peach and wine capital will make way for a musical takeover as Palisade hosts the fifth Palisade Bluegrass and Roots Festival set for Friday through Sunday, June 14–16, at Riverbend Park.

The festival’s lineup features traditional and contemporary Americana music along with camping and other activities such as yoga, music workshops, jam sessions, local wines, craft beers, arts, food and more. A kid’s activity tent and guided hikes and bike rides to natural, cultural and archaeological sites will be available.

All shows are general admission lawn seating, so take a chair, tarp or blanket. Shade tents and umbrellas are allowed toward the rear of the lawn and standing room will be available closer to the stage.

Single-day tickets as well as three-day passes are available along with Three Day Plus Camping passes. Ages 12 and younger are free.

The gates to the concert grounds open two hours before the first act each day. Gates are located near the Riverbend Park entrance at 451 Pendleton St.
