Rocky Mountain Highway (MeadowGrass Music Festival)


For eight years, Rocky Mountain Highway has been bringing joy to local families and music-loving tourists with 20-plus bands at MeadowGrass Music Festival. The goal is to create an iconic festival, similar to Telluride Bluegrass or Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, and make Colorado Springs THE destination for music tourism by fostering local talent, attracting national artists and ensuring the legacy of this local tradition.


Music feeds our souls, but it can also feed our local economy. RMH strives to give Colorado Springs a music festival that will foster a sense of pride, as well as an unforgettable celebration of music to share with family and friends. With support from Give! we can attract even more elite talent to MeadowGrass and our house concert series and extend our advocacy for local musicians beyond the Pikes Peak region.


Attendees and volunteers at concerts and events; volunteers to join the Street Team and hang posters; tents, chairs, sound equipment, staging and fencing; office space; and food and beverage donations.

“The positive impact of the MeadowGrass Music Festival on a music community so closely knit as Colorado Springs is invaluable”
— Joe Johnson, local musician and songwriter
