Through the Cool Colorado Rain — The High-Country Legacy of the Grateful Dead

For decades, generations of Deadheads gathered to connect with the Grateful Dead in Colorado.

The Grateful Dead’s storied history in Colorado began at Denver’s Family Dog and a “Human Be-In” in City Park in 1967. They would go on to play the state’s legendary venues, including stadiums and Red Rocks Amphitheatre, which the band considered a sacred place for their music. The group performed regularly in Colorado until guitarist Jerry Garcia’s death in 1995.
