It's the 40th RockyGrass... So we couldn't stop ourselves from adding one more little celebratory treat: a magical late-night set from Greensky Bluegrass (!!).
Before you make your way to the campgrounds for a final night of epic pickin', join us in the Wildflower Pavilion beginning at 11pm. We'll continue serving New Belgium beer at the Wildflower bar, as one of our favorite bands throws down a very special 40th Anniversary-worthy MoonGrass set (and a teaser of what they'll have in-store next month for the Kinfolk Celebration).
Please note: This show is open to all RockyGrass 3-day pass and Saturday ticketholders. You must have one of these festival tickets to attend; no additional tickets will be sold for this show.
