Preview: Grapes and Grass Wine and Bluegrass 2018
Grapes and Grass Wine and Bluegrass Festival
Grapes and Grass Wine and Bluegrass Festival is returning to the Highland City Club on August 24 -25, 2018.
The second year of what will hopefully become a long-lasting Boulder tradition is following the formula of 2017’s inaugural festival by pairing an incredible lineup of Bluegrass and Americana music with an equally impressive lineup of premium wines.
This year the wine is being curated by Master Sommelier, Brett Zimmerman, owner of Boulder Wine Merchant.
The festival is building on the success of 2017 and making some minor changes to improve upon what was already a huge success. 2018’s Grapes and Grass will feature a larger main stage, more food options, Kid’s activities, luxury bathrooms and an After-Grass party at Boulder Theater with music by The Drunken Hearts and Gasoline Lollipops.
Grapes and Grass Experiences
Grapes and Grass is starting off with a Friday evening Kickoff Party featuring intimate performances by Timber! and The Mighty Pines, premium wine tastings, and heavy hors d’ouerves. Tickets to the Friday event can be purchased separately for $75 or are included in the VIP package.
VIP packages are $165 and also include a Rosé Brunch at the Highland City club on Saturday morning. In addition, VIP pass holders have access to a VIP lounge with premium wine tastings for on Saturday afternoon.
General Admission for Saturday is only $35 and includes 10 hours of music, a complimentary Grapes & Grass shatter-proof GOVINO wine glass, 2 hours of wine tastings, and entry to the Boulder Theater “After Grass” show with Gasoline Lollipops and The Drunken Hearts.
Grapes and Grass Boulder – The Grass
This year the lineup is again stacked with some of the best acts to pass through Boulder. Wood Belly will kick off the main stage, followed by Dirk Quinn Band, Ragged Union (w/ Burle Galloway), Lonesome Days, and Tiffany Christopher & The Hunting Party. The Mighty Pines will take us into the early evening before the main event – Arthur Lee Land‘s “Twang is Dead” and “Salmon is Dead” featuring Drew Emmitt and Andy Thorn (from Leftover Salmon).
Between all of this action will be sets on the Highland Stage by Chunky Whiskey, Bonnie & Taylor Sims, The Whys, and Musk ‘n Boots.
After the main stage comes to a close, the party continues at the Boulder Theater with Gasoline Lollipops and The Drunken Hearts.
