Where is the festival located?

Our festival is located in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado--home of Rocky Mountain National Park. For the first time, in 2023 it will be located at Stanley Park, on the South side of Lake Estes.

Check out all of the things there are to do in Estes Park at Visit Estes Park. Come on another weekend or weekday besides SnowyGrass, and you can check out their calendar for live music.

Is there on-site camping?

Yes! We are currently working out the details and ticketing for this! 

Are there special hotel rates?

SnowyGrass is held in the middle of Estes Park's busiest tourist season. Hotels and other places of lodging get booked full early in the year, sometimes. They are not able to offer discounts in the summer. Check availability and prices here: Estes Park Lodging | Hotels, Cabins, & Campgrounds (

What is the seating like for General Admission?

Seating is bring your own chair or blanket or tarp. We'll have a place in the back for high-backed chairs and prefer low-backed chairs in the front. There will be reserved spaces for 10x10 canopies for our major sponsors, but allow for first come first serve placement of canopies behind that.

What items are prohibited?

We do not allow guns or knives within the perimeters of our privately owned and permitted event. NO OUTISIDE ALCOHOL.

Are outside alcohol and food allowed?

It is illegal in the State of Colorado for you to bring in outside alcohol. A bar will be available with local beer, wine and spirits.

A variety of food trucks will be available on-site for your convenience. It is not strictly prohibited to bring in outside food, but we encourage you to purchase from our vendors.

Where do we park?

The nearby school parking lot will provide ample parking for a festival. It is a short walk down to the festival grounds. There will be limited parking passes for sale on-site for campers. Vehicles with ADA permits will be allowed to park on-site.

Is this a "picking" festival?

There will be plenty of opportunities to pick if you are camping! The spacious grounds will have many places to jam, and it is far away from residences and lodging. 

You can also pick during the festival anywhere outside of the festival grounds. Stanley Park is quite large. Keep in mind that the majority of the park will still be open to the public. You may get an audience!

Is it in the same location as in the past?

Nope. While we did think that our former location was certainly magical, we must move due to impending road construction and changes.  On the bright side, the new location will have many improvements such as space and allowance for camping, ample nearby parking, beautiful views, bathroom facilities, and room for growth!

Are there volunteer opportunites?

Yes! Please register here to get started.


Are there vendor opportunites?
