A proposal for a potential outdoor music festival at Overland Golf Course has been brought to the city. Discussions are still in the preliminary stages. Denver is one of two cities currently exploring the opportunity. The city has been evaluating the potential music event by first reviewing it with local residents in the Overland Park, Athmar Park and Ruby Hill community, as well as with the golf course community. Decisions regarding the possible music festival will be made in the spring of 2017.

When: Tuesday, March 14 @ 6:00PM
