Nedfest Music Festival

Nedfest Music Festival

The NedFest Music and Arts Festival will take place on the shores of the Barker Reservoir in the mountains of Nederland, Colorado, just 17 miles west of and 3,000 feet above Boulder. This year marks their 20th year, making it one of the oldest music festivals in Colorado and one of the older ones in the whole country. They host a wide range of music, from rock and roll to blues, bluegrass to folk and Americana, with a hint or two of jazz. Onsite camping is available next to the Barker Reservoir and NedFest is very kid friendly, with kids 12 and under free with an adult, a kids’ tent with activities, and a special teen price too. Artists and craft vendors ring the field. Colorado microbrews and mead are on tap and we always have a variety of food vendors.

With a capacity of only 2000 people you are never more than 200 feet from the stage and won’t have to walk a mile to the bathroom. Come up to cool, beautiful Nederland for some friendly welcome vibes and great music!
