Laney Jones to Headline Wind River Mountain Festival in Pinedale July 22-24

Now boasting over 50 event sponsors including a who’s-who’s of outdoor product companies (Patagonia, North Face, et al.), The Wind River Mountain Festival held in Pinedale, WY July 22-24 will feature everything from live music and gear demos to kids events and a craft beer festival. All events will be held at American Legion Park and are free! Headlining the music portion of the event on Saturday July 23 will be Florida’s Laney Jones and the Spirits. Recently named by as a 2016 artist to watch, Jones is “the kind of Americana artist who can work equally well on the indie stage of a bluegrass festival as in an iTunes commercial.” Jones will take the stage at 7pm. Indie-folk-rock trio The Jason Burton Band will open at 5:30 pm. Admission to the show is free! Home to over 140 miles of the Continental Divide Trail (CDT), the Wind River Range in Western Wyoming will be celebrated in style as Pinedale becomes the Cowboy State’s first Continental Divide Gateway Community. In February, Pinedale was officially accepted as Wyoming’s first CDT Community – a designation reserved for communities in close proximity to the Trail that apply through the CDT Coalition and promise to promote good stewardship and, among other things, plan a corresponding event which quickly blossomed into the full-fledged 3-day outdoor event. Brendan Leonard, purveyor of the popular outdoor blog, will be the festival’s opening night keynote speaker on Friday July 22. Leonard’s address will kick off three days of outdoor adventure-inspired presentations, music and activities for all ages. For a full schedule of WRMF events visit #sponsored #county10 #buckrail #news
