GARDNER- Two days of Music, Entertainment, Food, Arts and a Tie Dye Block Party, all at no charge. Bring the means to sample scrumptious foods and unique art. Fantastic fun for all ages and families. Live music from national bands and local musicians on two stages, plus, the Fair of Ideas. "Eclectic Exuberance" is how this festival has been described. This event takes place each year in the rural community of Gardner, CO in the Community Center and Fairgrounds at the foot of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountain range on Hwy 69, dubbed the ′Highway of Love′ by the transplants who arrived here during the 1960′s.
This gathering is in celebration of our achievements locally and globally as people of one world and many tribes. It is our opportunity to come together and share our wares and tell our stories, offer one another support and make new relationships. We stand together as one community and invite all comers to join us in a festival of life and the bounty that this life has afforded us. Come and learn from our example and share yours with us. Through this exchange we will learn to respect one another and to care for our community and our neighbors and by extension the surrounding community of the world. By this we hope to leave our children an improved and more sustainable community.
Join us or regret missing one of the greatest events to happen in Colorado.
