Music, winter sports, craft beer, fresh eats, and family is what makes up the three days of the WinterWonderGrass Festival. With deep roots in Colorado and California, the event has established itself as a leader in the winter lifestyle culture where the quality of experience outweighs the notion of quantity. WinterWonderGrass is an intimate gathering where inspiration and connection sit at its core. Our community is focused on sustainability, local non-profit support, nurturing the next generation and truly backing the arts.
Since its inception, the festival continues to cultivate the relationship between nature, roots music and community. It has established itself as a vehicle for inspiration, a place where open hearts and minds–along with a dissolved illusion of separation–creates a true, authentic platform for artists, vendors, attendees and the planet to connect as one.
The outdoor event takes place at the base of its hosting ski areas, with an open-air outdoor mainstage and three side-stages, which are heated and covered. Every year, WinterWonderGrass hosts an on-site coffee bar and complimentary beer tasting. The event is also kid-friendly, complete with a kid’s zone and free admission for kids 12 and under.
