The third year of the outdoor music festival brought six bands to the field, and organizer Wes Paxton with Conifer Rotary, which sponsors the event, was thrilled with the layout, saying it was easy for attendees to see the bands, hear the music, grab food and drinks and check out the other vendors.
As classic rock band Rattletrap jammed to familiar tunes, Paxton said ConiferFest was a perfect trifecta of great music, beautiful weather and community gathering.
Youngsters had fun getting their faces painted while business vendors talked to attendees about their offerings. The Yum Bus and La Cuisine’s barbecue food trucks fed attendees, some sitting under tents while others wanted to be closer to the stage.
Music lovers tapped their toes, danced and sang along with the bands ranging from Who’s Thomas and May Be Fern to Joe Bye and Friends, Rattletrap, Dakota Blonde and Captain Quirk.
The best part, according to Conifer Rotary members, is that music festival proceeds go to help the 285 Backpack program that provides weekend food for kids in need, scholarships for Platte Canyon and Conifer high school students, grants to nonprofits and a literacy program that provides books to students.
