Please be prepared to walk to and from this event. Parking on The Green is not permitted. “Carpooling” or “Shuttling” your belongings to and from The Green, dropping-off, then parking elsewhere and walking back to The Green may be worthwhile.
The Fun: Bring your frisbee, your bocce balls, your croquet set, or the lawn game of your choice. Games, and perhaps volleyball, start about 4:00 PM with food following as folks bring their dishes and the buffet tables get set up.
The Food: We ask that everyone prepare and bring a covered dish, serving utensils and beverage (other than water). Also bring lawn chairs or a blanket to sit on to eat. Plates, cups, napkins, and eating utensils will be provided, along with water.
The Music: The concert will feature the preeminent, quintessential Colorado bluegrass band, FY5. Music will begin by 6:30 PM and should be done by about 8:30-ish. Donations will be collected to support the band, and 100% of donations go to the band.
Colorado’s FY5 proudly swim in the deep currents of American music, playing new songs, well informed of country and bluegrass traditions, but not bound to them. Featuring thoughtful arrangements, strong singing and musicianship, the band strives to connect to listeners with stories of common struggles and big ideas. While their sound evokes timelessness, it is decidedly contemporary, well-traveled 21st century sensibility that informs their songwriting.
Bring your dancin’ shoes and join our neighbors for a fun, foot-stompin’ evening. Can’t wait to see y’all there!
