La Forest Conference and Retreat Center
Colorado Springs, Colo.
La Foret founded MeadowGrass Music Festival in 2009 with the purpose of raising funds for the preservation of the 429-acre retreat and its historical buildings. With a lineup that continues to one-up the previous year’s effort, the festival is growing a solid reputation.
This year’s lineup is no different, with headlining sets from The Duhks, Elephant Revival and The Mother Hips, in addition to performances by Colorado acts such as Ark Life, Chimney Choir and Taarka, among others.
Camping has already sold out for the Memorial Day Weekend event, but other on-site and off-site options are available, and with Colorado Springs so close by, hotels are plentiful.
