Overview: The ninth season of Paonia’s Pickin’ in the Park concert series begins August 4th and continues Thursday evenings through August 25th. The four-show series is free to the public and features top notch music from around the country! All events are family friendly and include a children’s activities area on-site, next to the playground, with a view of the stage. The North Fork Creative Coalition will be curating the kids’ area, and they have some very exciting things lined up for the little ones. The audience is welcome to bring lawn chairs, blankets, coolers and picnics, but please note that there is no glass or outside alcohol allowed in the park.
Food & Drinks: KVNF will be serving refreshing beverages, including award-winning, locally brewed draft beer by Revolution Brewing, local wine from the West Elks Wineries and cold, crisp hard cider from Delicious Orchards. Several local food vendors will be on hand serving locally prepared burritos, homemade pasta, BBQ and much more.
KVNF Radio Broadcast: All concerts will be broadcast live on KVNF Community Radio (90.9, 89.1 FM) and will be streaming live on the net at www.kvnf.org.
Sponsors: Pickin’ in the Park is presented by Pickin’ Productions and co-presented by The Kampe Foundation. Community sponsors, local businesses, individual supporters and food and beverage vendor fees pay for the entire series.
