Friends of Folk Festival

June 25, 4-9 p.m., Tuesday Night Live at Performance Park, 417 West Elkhorn, Estes Park

Did we say free admission? Claim your spot early. Be sure to bring chairs or blankets to sit and watch the show. The Friends of Folk Festival carries the torch forward to build upon the legacy of our late friend Dick Orleans. The festival is held in the style of Dick's "Friends of Folk" nights. Entertainment includes performances from up and coming local amateurs and professional musicians plus a preview performance from the World Famous Lumpy Circus.

This year's headlining performers are a JamGrass Super Band Collective featuring Adam Aijala and Ben Kaufmann from Yonder Mountain String Band, Andy Thorn from Leftover Salmon, Jeremy Garrett from The Infamous Stringdusters and Stephen Mougin from The Sam Bush Band.

All donations from the festival are used to create this wonderful event and fund Dick Orleans’ Legacy scholarships. Share the news and encourage all your friends to join us for this wonderful community music festival.

Dick Orleans was always supporting others to pursue their arts, whether music or photography ¬or anything! A scholarship fund has been established with Dick’s passions in mind. Anyone in the Estes Valley with a passion for the arts can apply for the scholarship at: Friends of Folk Festival pages. Applications are due by this Sunday, June 23rd. This award will be given out at the Festival.

We send a big thank you out to our local sponsors, participating festival vendors, volunteers and all who are making this event possible!
