Our Origin Story
Created in 2015 as our way of giving back to the community, The Rocky Mountain Tree Festival brings people together for community restoration and beautification. This annual festival provides you with many opportunities to roll up your sleeves, dig in, and keep Colorado beautiful.
We will be hosting 2 volunteering tree planting events in partnership with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado and Denver Parks and Rec on Saturday, September 21st. Out one day goal is to plant up to 4,000 trees, shrubs and woody plants to our urban spaces in both central and north Denver. Both of the volunteer sits have been areas in need of restoration and reforestation and we are excited to help VOC and Denver Parks and Rec to be able to get these needs met!
After a long, and fun day of volunteering, we will be hosting our signature fundraising/benefit conner at Levitt Pavilion in the Ruby Hill district in Denver. Levitt Pavilion is a non-profit open-air amphitheater owned and operated by Denver Parks and Rec and is an Awesome way to show our support and commitment to both them and our community.
The concert will kick off with performances from local artists at 5pm and our headline act, the collaborative and always spontaneous Everyone Orchestra, Will take stage at 7pm. We could not be more excited to work with and feature these artists, Coming from world renowned bands such as Grateful Dead, Phish, The Allman Brothers Band, Furthur, Widespread Panic, Ratdog, Gov’t Mule, Ween, String Cheese Incident, The Meters, Umphrey’s McGee, The Disco Biscuits, Big Gigantic, Moe., Yonder Mountain String Band, Thievery Corporation, and more!
