Date of third annual Edge Fest officially announced

For the third year, a free outdoor music festival will be held in Cheyenne’s West Edge District by a group of West Edge passionate volunteers, who are set to put on another groovy concert on Aug. 27. Last year the event featured Grace Askew, the folk duo Midas Whale, and opening act, Luna Rae. This year's line-up is expected to be announced soon. Edge Fest 2016 will feature great music using the outdoor scenery of the West Edge as a backdrop. The event will be held at the Cheyenne City Municipal Parking Lot at the corner of Bent Avenue and West 21st Street. The parking lot is slated to become the future home of Cheyenne’s West Edge Civic Center Commons park. Dave Teubner and Dean Dexter, co-owners of Warehouse Twenty One, will be the hosting sponsor of this year’s event. Teubner said, “The private sector partners, including myself, are hopeful that the park will be a future location for music in the West Edge for years to come.” Last year was the second year for Edge Fest and the event drew hundreds of people to come down, explore and celebrate the future of Cheyenne’s next great neighborhood—West Edge. The first year’s success spurred energy from volunteers to continue the event as an annual outdoor musical festival. The event is set to announce the headliner, supporting bands and sponsors in the next couple weeks. Music fans are encouraged to put this event on their calendar, and follow Edge Fest on Facebook. Edge Fest will be on Aug. 27 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and is open to the public. Along with great music, attendees will find amazing food from local food trucks, thirst quenching beverages and other great local entertainment. #shortgo #news
