Where is the festival located?

Our festival is located in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado--home of Rocky Mountain National Park. Located at 271 Ivy St, Baldwin Park (behind Snowy Peaks Winery) 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?

Baldwin Park, where the festival has been held since 2016, does not have space for camping. There are a variety of campgrounds in the area. Check out Camping and RV availability online.

We will be holding the festival in a new location TBD in 2023 which may allow for camping.

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 (

Is there a seating chart for 2022?

No. We are not anticipating the need for a seating chart. Seating (or standing) will be more fluid, as it always was before 2020. Gates will open at a specified time, and grabbing a spot will be first come each day. Multi-day ticket holders may leaving their chairs in place overnight at your own risk. (That just means we aren't responsible for them at all.)

What kind of chairs and other items are allowed?

We, and the guests around you, would prefer your chairs are low to the ground. Are we going to police that? No. We are going to rely on your courteousness. Please do not set up large umbrellas or canopies unless you have purchased a limited, designated spot for canopies. We will ask that something like this that is very obstructive be taken down.

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?

There is not a designated lot for SnowyGrass attendees. The lot that you will see on-site is strictly reserved for musicians, staff, vendors. volunteers and disability parking. If you have a disability parking permit, you must make an arrangement with us in advance to receive a parking pass to park in this lot.


There are some nearby paid lots, and a few free all-day lots. The parking garage on the East side of town is free and may be used all day. There are free shuttles around town. Check out these links:

Is this a "picking" festival?

Due to the size of the park, it is probably not conducive to picking or jamming in groups around the grounds. Following the performances on Saturday and Sunday, it may be possible to jam in the park or in the backyard of Snowy Peaks Winery. We may have an arrangement at a nearby venue for jamming Saturday and Sunday evenings, pond-side. There will possibly be room around the pond for multiple jams. Stay tuned.

Is it in the same location as in the past?

Yes. 2021 will be the last time we can hold the festival at Baldwin Park due to road construction and changes in traffic. The new location is TBD, but is in the works, and may allow for camping on-site.

Are there volunteer opportunites?

Yes. Stay tuned for more information.
