Elevation Festival returns to Kremmling this weekend
An anonymous gift two years ago was intended to bring Grand County’s churches together. Now, the gift is about to do it again.
“It was such a success, we’re going to make it an annual thing as long as we can,” said Kelsey Hargadine, one of the event coordinators for this weekend’s family friendly Elevation Festival in Kremmling.
Three days before the two-day festival returns for its second run, Hargadine is big on a lineup highlighted by live music, numerous family activities and seven different inflatables. Beyond the bouncers, Elevation is also bringing Stunt Dudes to Grand County for a Saturday performance.
“It’s an action-sport outreach kind of deal,” Hargadine said of the group.
The festival came about last summer after a generous gift from an anonymous donor, Hargadine explained. Bringing local churches together in celebration and worship was the idea, and the donor wanted the faith-based festival to be entirely free, she continued.
“His hope was really to bring hope to the community and show the goodness of God in Grand County,” Hargadine said.
Going into its second year, Elevation runs from 2-10 p.m. Saturday outside West Grand High School in Kremmling before returning Sunday morning with worship, a featured speaker and a barbecue.
The free festival will happen rain or shine. Because Saturday’s free meal tickets won’t be available until 4 p.m., festival-goers who arrive earlier are encouraged to bring their own snacks.
