River Access and Festival Walking Route

River Access and Festival Safety Notices

As the 2016 Folk's Festival approaches, the Town wants to remind Festivarians and locals of river access and exit points, the walking route from Bohn Park to Planet Bluegrass, and other safety measures to observe throughout the weekend.
Enjoy the festival!!

All river access and recreation is at users’ own risk!
The river icons noted on the map are access and/or exit points of the river, to
avoid trespassing on private property, fragile restoration areas, and dangerous
construction zones. Please access and exit the river at those points.

The creek banks are in the process of revegetation, as part of the St. Vrain Creek
Restoration Project, resulting from the 2013 flood. These plants and trees are
crucial for stream restoration and healthy aquatic habitats. Please stay off areas
with plantlings present.

Two (2)-hour parking for patrons only will be enforced on Main Street. A parking map can be found on
