high mountain hay fever festival
This 4-day annual festival is one of America’s premier bluegrass events, attracting nationally-renowned talent and thousands of bluegrass fans from around the country. Yet, at the same time, it lacks the congestion and overwhelming crowds found in most festivals.
Held in the park with panoramic views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, it makes for one of the best concert venues you could imagine. Don’t miss this favorite event!
