This is a very fun festival!

Unfortunately, our family will not be able to attend this festival this year. I'm super bummed, as I am the one who posted the trip! Anyway, I'm leaving this event on the meet-up site even though I will not be hosting the meet-up group. Please connect to each other by leaving your phone number and comments below. Have fun!!

    Scott - we got 3 day passes and ended up going with onsite camping (to mix it up from Rockygrass where we do Meadow Park camping). I think Folk Fest is pretty mellow so I doubt there will be too much noise. Can't wait!

    We go to all of the festivals at Planet Bluegrass - they are a highlight of our summer! We prefer Rockygrass to Folks Festival, mainly because we prefer Bluegrass music to Folk music, but both festivals are a great time! Aside from all of the great musicians that come in, there is a kids' tent with crafts, Swallow Hill brings up instruments for the kids to play, there is usually an outdoor education center that runs activities, and this year there was an outdoor adventure school that set up some climbing and a slack line for the kids. This is all on top of the St. Vrain River, which runs down the side of the festival grounds. There is a huge sanday bank for the kids to play in and usually the River is low enough by July/August that the kids can safely play in the river. Our daughter spends 3-4 hours a day just playing in the sand and the water. Planet Bluegrass was pretty devastated by the floods but they've committed to rebuilding before next summer - it's an amazing place!

      Fabulous, thanks for the insight! I've been to a number of telluride bluegrass festivals, but not since having kids and I think Planet Bluegrass does such a great job! Looking forward to it!

    For tickets, we always get the 3 day passes with camping at the Meadow Park campground. For us, camping is one of the highlights of the festival - we enjoy hanging at the campground as much as we like going to the festival itself! Meadow Park is a Lyons city park that Planet Bluegrass rents out for the week of the festival. It has a playground, volleyball court, and a big grassy field. The St. Vrain bends around the campground, which makes for a great tube ride that goes over 4-5 small "rapids". Our 5 year old loves it! Meadow Park is a short walk (about 10 minutes) from the festival, which we like because it allows us a little separation and downtime away from all of the fun that is happening on the festival grounds. Plus, it makes bedtime a little easier as the music goes until about 11:00 most nights. There are tons of families in the Meadow Park campground!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
