Yarmony Grass Festival


Yarmony Grass returns to Rancho Del Rio

BY Brian F. Johnson


August 2-5

Rancho Del Rio

State Bridge, Colo.

Like bands, many festivals often are afraid to say exactly what they are for fear of being pigeon holed. But Yarmony Grass doesn’t mince words. It bills itself with full transparency, and maybe just a little boasting, as the “jamgrass music event of the year.”

You’re going there to see: According to YG’s website the lineup will be announced “soon.”

You’re going to come home talking about: How incredible Rancho del Rio is, and how remote that part of the state feels.


Travel time:

(As calculated by maps.google.com from

Denver, Colo. to State Bridge, Colo.)

Total Est. Time: 2 hours, 34 minutes

Total Est. Distance: 134 miles


YOU NEED TO KNOW: Take a swim suit, but leave the cell phone. Rancho del Rio at State Bridge is located along the banks of the Upper Colorado River. One of the best pastimes during set breaks is lounging next to, or even in the river. Though it’s only 134 miles from Denver, the remoteness of the location is incredible. Don’t worry if you forget the charger for your phone, because you’re not going to have service anyway.

Camping: Included in the three-day pass.
