THE SUNNYSIDE MUSIC FESTIVAL IS SATURDAY 9/11

THE SUNNYSIDE MUSIC FESTIVAL IS SATURDAY!

Join us at Chaffee Park on Saturday, September 11th from 12pm - 7:30pm, and find our booth -- we'll be pouring our wine, and we'd love to see you!

The Sunnyside Music Festival provides free music, fun entertainment, local food, lots of beer, and kids activities to the greater Sunnyside neighborhood of Northwest Denver via an inclusive all-day music festival in Chaffee Park. Through community outreach, it supports musicians, artists, businesses, schools, and non-profits.

In 2000, the (then named) Sunnyside Bluegrass Festival began in the backyard of a neighborhood couple who wanted to have a free music festival for their friends and neighbors. It started with 2 bands, 2 kegs, 50 people and about 20 dogs.

The next year, a monsoon rolled off of the mountains and it was rainy and about 45 degrees all day, but the event grew in both attendance and beer consumption. The founders knew they were getting somewhere in 2002 when a couple of local politicians showed up to glad hand. The second stage, located in a neighbor¹s back yard, and actually on a back porch.

By 2004, the event was on the brink of moving into Chaffee Park, but the abundance of expensive permits and paperwork seemed daunting. Shortly after, the couple moved away, and sadly the festival was discontinued.

In 2007, local Sunnyside folks applied for two small grants to revive the festival. Together with a handful of friends they re-launched the event with the help of local musicians like Mollie O¹Brien. Now coming up on its eighth year, The Sunnyside Music Festival has become a mainstay for the NW Denver Neighborhood, taking over Chaffee Park the Saturday after Labor Day each year.

In 2016 we raised enough money through the festival to distribute small grants to local non-profits that are working to get our neighborhood kids playing music.

We hope to see you at this year's festival.

Founded in Denver, the high-energy bluegrass 5-piece has gained notoriety as both practitioners of Traditional Bluegrass and genre-warping jammers. Drawing from a broad range of inspiration that includes Townes Van Zandt, Flatt & Scruggs, The Dead and contemporaries like Billy Strings, lead vocalist Jeremy Richard serves as the conduit to create a unique category of soaring, frenetic, authentic Americana. Pick & Howl delivers a groundbreaking Bluegrass performance that is not to be missed.

Get ready for protest music you can dance to (sweet and cutting like a chocolate machete). This North Denver miracle loaded up in a pedicab and helped save the Sunnyside Music Fest during the pandemic in 2020. Now they are going to rock the town on the big stage.
