Thanks for Another Great MeadowGrass!


Say Goodbye to Single Digits – MeadowGrass Turns 10 Next Year!

Thanks to the support of hundreds of sponsors, volunteers, vendors, artists, and music lovers, the 9th Annual MeadowGrass Music Festival was the biggest and best yet! For all you do, we are truly grateful.

We will be posting select photos from this year’s festivities as we receive them, but for now we encourage you to check out this amazing gallery of images posted by Christian Murdock of the Colorado Springs Gazette. And, we have extended the deadline for submitting entries in the MeadowGrass photo contest until 5 pm on Monday, June 19, 2017 due to a glitch on our end (see contest rules below). We’d also love to hear what you thought of the festival this year – please take the time to complete a short survey about your experience.

And finally – we are thrilled to announce that Rocky Mountain Highway continues to receive support from Colorado Creative Industries, which has awarded our non-profit organization a generous $6,500 grant for the coming fiscal year.

We are honored to play a role in supporting the local music community here in the Pikes Peak region, and we have big plans for the coming year, so please continue to check this newsletter for updates on MeadowGrass 2018 and details on our fall concert series.

Together, WE ROCK!
