Permit Type(s): Private Land Location:
Event will be held on a 10 acre plot of land just to the south of 1020 West County Road, Wellington, CO. Owned by former owner of Grant Family Farms.
This is a music event, with three musical performances, that is being organized as a fund raiser for the Sustainable Living Association. Event will be held on private land, on an agricultural field typically farmed for alfalfa, etc. No road will be closed. Event begins at 7pm and ends at 2pm, water will be provided in water kegs from New Belgium and Odell Brewing Companies, as well as standard igloo water dispensers. We will have approximately 50 volunteers on site from set-up through breakdown. We anticipate 500 people will attend with a maximum number of 650 allowed through the ticketing process. The beer garden will be run by seasoned volunteers from the Sustainable Living Fair, many are Tips trained, and will be overseen by veteran Beer Garden Coordinator Tony Falbo. Beer will be available in 16 oz. cups and all patrons will be carded prior to serving, this is a 21+ event only. Three food vendors will be onsite, invites have gone out to local food trucks the Waffle Lab, Super Tasty Gyros and a coffee and non-alcoholic vendor. The primary structure is a 40'x100' pole tent rented from and set-up by Front Range Event Rental and they secure the fire permit package. The beer garden is built out of 10'x10' tents with lighting provided through led light strings. The stage is a 6'x12' platform under the big tent, lighting provided by Shaped Music. There is adequate land for parking vehicles and they are directed to their spot by volunteers in safety vests, plastic ribbon is staked out to direct traffic in the correct direction. The land should not be negatively affected as it will be tilled under and replanted next year. Neighboring land is all agricultural fields, their are no homes or businesses and they are fenced off. Their will be 8 porta-potties on site, one hand washing station and 3 trash/recycling stations. We are awaiting written permission form the land owner which should be in hand on October 4th, at which time we can upload that information as well as the site map. Proceeds will benefit the Sustainable Living Association.
