The Norse God of winter is came back to Golden! The third-annual UllrGrass music and beer festival was held in the Rocky Mountain foothills of Golden, CO Friday January 27 - Sunday January 29, 2017. It was a magical weekend when Ullr comes to our little western town to raise his drinking horn to craft beer, great music and a crowd that knows how to have fun in winter. The event is held in at Parfet Park and the Buffalo Rose in downtown Golden.
The event includes something for nearly everyone kicking off with the UllrGrass Park Parade, followed by a festival complete with premier musical acts from Colorado to Nashville, a kids activity area, food vendors, artisan vendors, musician workshops and more. Golden is a vibrant, active, healthy community with a love of the outdoors and UllrGrass provides an opportunity to get outside and enjoy our town - even in mid-winter. Take in the views of Golden's iconic Mesas from Parfet Park while grooving to the toe-tapping rhythm of a bluegrass, jamgrass or Americana band.
UllrGrass is a volunteer-driven not-for-profit event, bringing the entire Golden community together to raise money forthe Coral Creek Music Project. The Coral Creek Music Project was founded by longtime Golden residents Chris and Susannah Thompson. The organization's mission is two-fold. First, it is focused on providing music performance and instruction opportunities to children and Second, it is dedicated to the development of local musicians and music organizations to make our community and the world a better place.
Chris and Susannah Thompson founded the festival in 2015 as a passion project to bring a unique live music experience to their beloved home town. Thanks to the support of the City of Golden, local businesses, and more than 100 Golden volunteers, the event has been an outstanding success
Get your Ullr horns on and come be a part of it!
