More than a Music Festival, ARISE provides a wealth of inspirational programming, round-house discussions addressing locally relevant environmental and social justice issues, and an emphasis on quality yoga classes which are offered all day in a stunning panoramic setting, overlooking the 100 acre festival grounds.  All included in one ticket price.

A known favorite of the summer festivals for families, children 12 and under are free at ARISE. This year’s Children’s Village will feature more great activities for kids of all ages including the addition of The Living Folklore puppet and stilt-walking group to the celebrated daily parade. Known for their work with the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and High Sierra Music Festival, The Living Folklore bring quality, fun entertainment and festive costuming for the joy of kids and adults alike.

A unique, full-body festival experience in the Colorado Front Range music scene, this fast-growing 3-day camping festival plays host to dozens of healthy life style oriented vendors including fine crafts, delicious food, local brews, and organic and natural products.

Keeping its commitment as a “leave-no-trace” eco-conscious event, festival fans at ARISE can feel good about their ticket purchase knowing that ARISE will plant one tree with every ticket sold in conjunction with Fort Collins’ based non-profit, Trees, Water & People.  Now through Earth Day on April 22nd, ARISE Music Festival will plant 3 trees for every ticket sold, tripling the impact on “global cooling.”  Other aspects of the ARISE sustainability mission include solar powered and biodiesel generators, “Zero Hero” recycling and compost stations, free solar powered cell phone charging stations, upcycled site decor and a policy to not sell water in single-use plastic bottles.  Attendees are asked bring their own reusable water bottles as drinking water is supplied for free.
