Music, arts festival returns for two days of good times

Highlands Ranch park is site for variety of performances


In 2006, the active Highlands Ranch Concert Band decided to share its members’ joy in music with a wider community and launched a free Summer Music and Arts Festival, with a few other local bands on site to play for family audiences. In 2018, the 13th Annual Free Summer Music and Arts Festival takes place in Civic Green Park, 9370 Ridgeline Blvd., Highlands Ranch, on June 23 (11 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and 24 (11 a.m. to 6 p.m.). This year’s version will include 15 musical groups, scheduled for a 45-minute set each, starting every hour. This is a free, two-day family event.

Music will range from pops to jazz to swing and classical and patriotic tunes — probably all by the same group in some cases!

Also on hand will be a number of vendors with food, services and products at the Festival Marketplace.

Inviting Civic Green Park has a nice stage in an amphitheater. Visitors need to bring blankets or folding chairs if they want to sit and enjoy a concert or more. Picnics are encouraged — or buy a snack from the festival’s vendors — pizza is mentioned on the band’s website …
