11th Annual Mountain Melodies Music Festival At Buffalo Bill’s Museum and Grave
August 3, 2014
Free. Enjoy a spectacular view of the Front Range while listening to homegrown American music. Bring blankets or chairs and a picnic or buy food at the gift shop. Concert is from noon to 4pm. 303-526-0744.
This year the Mountain Melodies Music Festival continues its tradition of highlighting musical groups from communities along the Colorado Front Range. Local favorites Dakota Blonde will headline the concert which includes bluegrass and roots music. Other acts include Steel Pennies and the Hummin’birds. This year, like the past 10 years, this festival will be FREE, thanks to funding from the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.
Add a walk through the Buffalo Bill Museum to your visit; consider dropping in to enjoy the special temporary exhibit “Folk, Fine and Funky: Buffalo Bill in Art”. If you travel light or bike up the hill, a full-service grill, ice cream, draft root beer and homemade fudge will all be available in the gift shop. It should be a great day to “Chill with Bill.”
