FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The board of directors of the Trinidaddio Blues Fest, Inc., a Colorado Non-Profit Charitable Organization, has voted to move forward with plans for a 2016 edition of the Trinidaddio Blues Fest, the popular music festival, formerly held annually at Central Park in Trinidad for over a decade before being suspended in 2012.
The Trinidaddio Blues Fest, funded through generous business and patron sponsorships, grants and ticket sales, has drawn as many as 6,000 enthusiasts to Trinidad’s Central Park, and has generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax revenues for the city.The festival traditionally has bee held on the weekend before Labor Day, and thus the date for the 2016 Fest will be Saturday, August 27, 2016.
In announcing plans for the 2016 Blues Fest, Jerry Campbell, board chairman, said “The non-profit decided to move forward following indications of strong support from numerous fans, city government and local businesses.” “Hundreds of volunteers are needed to put on this event,” Campbell said, “and many previous volunteers have already indicated their commitment for the proposed event.”
In addition to providing spectacular shows of local, regional and world-class blues performers, the Trinidaddio Blues Fest also has donated thousands of dollars to other local nonprofits, including Noah’s Ark Animal Welfare Assn. (a No Kill animal shelter), the Trinidad Area Arts Council, the Fireman’s Toy Drive and Trinidad Cancer Alliance, among numerous others.
Dates and times for public meetings regarding the 2016 Trinidaddio Blues Fest will be announced this fall, with new sponsors and volunteers welcomed, along with valued participants of past events.
