WinterWonderGrass 2023 Lineup
WinterWonderGrass Colorado is bringing in 10 new artists for their 10-year anniversary, along with returning headlines from the original festival! Expect the unexpected with this lineup of musicians – every. single. day.
Single Day Tickets are available if you can’t swing the whole weekend. But, why would you want to miss any moment of this amazing Colorado bluegrass music festival?
In fact, for those of you itching to get started early, don’t miss the Free Thursday Kickoff Show at the Gondola Plaza featuring Trout Steak Revival from 2-5pm.
And congrats to those who were ahead of the game, because the Thursday Mountain Top ‘Ranch to Table’ Dinner (6-9pm) featuring Big Richard has already sold out!
3 Jam-Filled Days in Steamboat Springs
At the heart of WinterWonderGrass Colorado is the main stage where the artists you know and love will bring you the music you’ll never forget.
But don’t miss out on the rest of the music! The festival has curated some of the best up-and-coming bands to play in the three (heated!) tents, and we’ve always left this festival with more than one new heartthrob from these side-stage performances.
During the day, hit the slopes and head to Thunderhead Lodge for free music on Saturday and Sunday! The Fretliners and Clay Street Unit will be playing from 11 – 1, getting you warmed up for the rest of the day’s festivities.
The music on the main stage might end at 11PM, but that doesn’t mean the party is over. The Grass After Dark shows are stacked this year. Catch a set at The Grand Ballroom, Shmiggity’s (a favorite venue with the locals) or ride the gondola to Thunderhead Lodge.
The Kitchen Dwellers, Lil Smokies, Leftover Salmon, Pixie and the Partygrass Boys, Neal Francis, Trout Steak Revival and Big Richard will all keep you dancing the night away. (Tickets sold separately. Click HERE to purchase.)
The New Map for WinterWonderGrass Colorado
There’s a new layout for the WWG Steamboat festival grounds in 2023 – so take note of the new and improved map.
And don’t forget about the daily FREE tastings of local beer, cider, seltzer, and wines – every day from 2PM – 5 PM – in the tents (so you can stay warm while sipping samples).
