Workshops are open to everyone with a valid festival wristband. Even if you’re not a musician, workshops can provide an intimate glimpse into the creative process of your favorite artists. All workshops take place in the workshop tent, located up the road and to the right behind the old log cabin.

- ~ Volunteer Opportunities ~
We’re finishing up scheduling our last 20 or so volunteers for the upcoming festival. We still have a few gate monitor, box office, merch booth, debris team and hospitality assistant positions open. To learn more about how to sign up to be a festival volunteer, please visit our web site or call 970-731-5582. Work two 4-hour shifts and earn 3-day festival admission. Must be 17 or over.
Non-campers will be directed to the parking area and can either walk to or be shuttled to the festival in one of our FREE festival shuttles, depending on where you get to park. There is generally no waiting, so you should get from your car to Reservoir Hill in less than 15 minutes. You are welcome to bring lawn chairs, coolers (no alcohol) and other necessities into the festival. If you bring shade tarps or canopies, please set them up where you will not obstruct others’ views behind you, along the back of the venue.
- There will be food vendors providing great festival fare on site all weekend, everything from bratwursts and roast corn to Italian. Our vendors are great! Beer will be available to individuals 21 and over in the beautiful Beer Garden. Beer and wine is served in the Patron area to Patron ticket holders.
- There is seating under the festival tent for 1200+ people and a huge meadow behind where you can stretch out in the sun or set your chairs up. We raise the front of the tent so people all the way back have a view of the stage. Wherever you enjoy the show, the sound is awesome! You may use only low-back chairs in the meadow; if you’ve got standard lawn chairs you’ll need to sit in the back where you won’t obstruct anyone’s view.
- In order to make the experience great for our musicians, we do not allow seats in the tent to go empty for more than 15 minutes. Unattended chairs will be cleared. We don’t want any of our musicians to play to a half-full house because people are saving their seats for the “headliners.” Please be considerate. Cleared items will be available in Lost & Found.
- This is a rain or shine event, so bring your rain gear just in case — better to be safe than sorry! And don’t forget your sunscreen. This time of year it’s best to bring layers — we can go from the 40s in the morning to the low 80s by afternoon.
