What’s NedFest?

The Nederland Music and Arts Festival is an annual three-day outdoor music and arts festival in the music world’s renowned Nederland, Colorado. This year will be our 20th year, making us one of the oldest music festivals in Colorado and one of the older ones in the whole country, too. We host a wide range of music, from rock and roll to blues, bluegrass to folk and Americana, with a hint or two of jazz. Onsite camping is available next to the Barker Reservoir and NedFest is very kid friendly, with kids 12 and under free with an adult, a kids’ tent and activities, and a special teen price too. Artists and craft vendors ring the field. Colorado microbrews and mead are on tap and we always have a variety of food vendors.

With a capacity of only 2000 people you are never more than 200 feet from the stage and won’t have to walk a mile to the bathroom. So skip the giant, hot, overcrowded festivals and come up to cool, beautiful Nederland for some friendly welcome vibes and great music!

Visit the Peak to Peak Music Education Association to learn more about a great cause.
