And, if you’d like to play a role in the Festival…
One of the most striking and enduring qualities of this festival is the sense of ownership that all of you feel about it. Spanish Peaks belongs to the musicians and to you, our participants. I will always recall what one musician (who hadn’t been able to perform “across the pond” for a while) told me at a late-night session: “This is my Ireland.” Our collective ownership is one reason why it feels so important to be able to “go live” this year.
Our artists have always recognized that holding an event of this stature, in a Colorado county numbering fewer than 7,000 residents, requires give and take from everyone. This year is no different. However, there is an additional challenge for the Festival this year. We want to meet the bar set in previous years by bringing in the caliber of musicians you have come to expect.
With that in mind, we are again offering you the opportunity to sponsor one of our artists, or even a concert. With sponsorship comes an even greater sense of ownership, various perks, and a personal opportunity (if you so choose) to meet the artist you have sponsored.
Below are links to sponsor, as well as other ways to contribute.
1) Check out our Sponsorship page for unique opportunities to participate.
2) If sponsorship is beyond your means, go to our Donations page to learn about other ways of helping out.
