Steamboat Springs continues to lean into its Western Heritage with an annual event for music lovers – WinterWonderGrass. Full of just that (winter, wonder, and bluegrass), this three-day musical festival is an absolute must see. Located at Steamboat Resort, this traveling concert series brings nearly 30 artists over the course of the weekend. Some alumni of WinterWonderGrass include Leftover Salmon, Yonder Mountain String Band, Trampled by Turtles and many more.


303 Magazine states, “WinterWonderGrass began in 2013 as a tiny, homegrown music festival in a parking lot in Edwards and is now returning for its seventh year in 2019 at its new home in Steamboat Springs, with sister festivals in Lake Tahoe, California, and Stratton, Vermont. The trifecta that founder Scotty Stoughton and his team have created over the past seven years is not only tremendously impressive but is also a blessing for bluegrass and string music fans across the nation. Stoughton and crew are also the faces behind Campout for the Cause, and though they’re not strangers on how to carefully curate a near-perfect festival, the WinterWonderGrasses are officially in a league of their own.”
