More than just Festivals...

When the historic 500-year flood of September 2013 devastated our town and our home, the biggest single casualty on the Planet Bluegrass Ranch was the total loss of the Wildflower Pavilion. Beginning this Spring, we are thrilled to welcome Festivarians back to our newly rebuilt year-round concert venue to celebrate the final step in the rebirth of Planet Bluegrass.

Our next great acoustic adventure on Planet Bluegrass begins anew in Spring 2015 as we welcome our favorite artists in bluegrass and acoustic music back to our intimate indoor venue along the St. Vrain River, including: a special grand reopening show with Ellis and Justin Roth, the high-energy post-bluegrass of Head for the Hills, a pairing of 2 of our favorite progressive bluegrass bands Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys and The Lil' Smokies, the official CD release show for The Railsplitters, and an evening with winners of both the RockyGrass and Telluride band contests Front Country. Join us for this eighth magical year of cozy indoor concerts along the St. Vrain River in Lyons, CO.

Wildflower Pavilion

The spectacular "cathedral of bluegrass" in Lyons is often described as a miniature Red Rocks. Boulder Daily Camera calls the Wildflower Pavilion "one of the coolest venues in Boulder County." We're nestled in the foothills - an easy 25-minutes north of Boulder; under an hour from Denver or Fort Collins.

We offer wine and New Belgium beer, Allegro coffee and tea, and popcorn for sale at the indoor bar when the Pavilion doors open. Some nights we'll invite everyone to special barbecue cookouts before the show. And when the weather feels right, we'll stay warm around a bonfire along the St. Vrain river before and after the show and maybe even pass around some instruments for a post-show jam.

We will only be selling about 300 tickets to each of these shows, so plan to get your tickets early. As always, children 12 and under are free, we charge absolutely no handling fees on any tickets, and all Wildflower tickets are non-refundable.

Spread the Love

We thrive from Festivarians sharing the good word with other would-be Festivarians. If you haven't yet experienced the Wildflower Pavilion, bring a couple friends along.
