Pickin' in the Park

August 17, 2017

Paonia Town Park, Paonia, CO


The tenth season of Paonia’s Pickin’ in the Park concert series begins August 3rd and continues Thursday evenings through August 24th. The four-show series, with two bands each night, is free to the public and features top notch music from around the country! Past performers have included Tim O’Brien, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Darrell Scott, Rosie Ladet, Shinyribs, Ron Miles and many others of all genres. 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 local draft beer, local wine from the West Elks Wineries and cold, crisp hard cider from Delicious Orchards. Our food vendors vary each week. Expect delicious choices such as locally prepared burritos, salads, homemade pasta, Thai dishes, BBQ, fresh fruit sno-cones, ice cream and 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
