Bookcliffs BBQ to feature music, food, fun

Sara Gallagher
Bookcliffs Arts Center

Summer is here, and its a damp one to begin with. While the rain is great, the Bookcliffs Arts Center unfortunately had to cancel its first evening of the Hilltop Concert Series due to the weather.

Fortunately, the BAC’s Inaugural Community BBQ on the Hill had room to add the musical guest to the bill, so you still have an opportunity to listen and dance to the music from Painters Stage and the Smuggler Mountain Boys June 26.

Completing the music for the BBQ will be Parachute’s own Gonzales. Gonzales is a delightful woman who spent the past many years making a well-rounded performance and events career in Los Angeles. Feeling a pull to return to her roots, she is here to grace us with her presence once again, along with all the wonderful knowledge gathered while working and studying in Los Angeles.

And music is just one aspect. There will be food catered from a local kitchen (TBD). Hamburgers and hot dogs will be served with a side salad donated by New Castle’s Osage Gardens, along with root beer floats and popcorn provided by the Lion’s Club and a variety of beverages provided by Rocky Mountain Liquors. A whole crew of our community is coming together for with this one.

Painted and photographic works will be on display by local artists Jennifer Sellers, Bill Schoenecker, Dave Schroeder, Sara Gallagher, George Cutting III and Ricky Lively.

The BBQ will run from 5-8 p.m. June 26, on the Bookcliff’s grounds.

Food will be cooked; music will be played; art will be viewed. The sweet sound of children and elders chuckling will be potent in the air, so come on out, neighbors.
