“If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine, and my tunes were played on the harp unstrung. Would you hear my voice, come through the music? Would you hold it near, as it were your own?”
The Grateful Garcia Gathering will be in its 11th year for 2014! We will have up dates though out the Fall and Winter months so stay tuned! Last up date 11/13/13.
Enjoy Grateful Dead – 6-26-94 – “So Many Roads” http://youtu.be/gfGD94CchJU
Jerry Garcia fans come from all around to dance and see some of the best jambands in the midwest at the 3G’s tribute, honoring and paying tribute to the Grateful Dead’s guitarist Jerry Garcia. It also marks the celebration of Jerry Garcia’s 72nd Birthday, and it is the 19th anniversary of Jerry Garcia’s untimely passing. It’s also a time when many fans pay tribute to remember other Grateful Dead members like Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, Keith Godchaux, Brent Mydland, and Vince Welnick.
“IMPORTANT 3G’s ANNOUNCEMENT”
We’re thrilled to announce a new venue for the Grateful Garcia Gathering 2014 at Kickapoo Stump Dodger Campground in beautiful Gays Mills Wisconsin! The 3G’s will be “all ages” like it once was back in 2007. This means if you are 18 and under, you MUST have a natural parent (Mom or Dad) with you at the 3G’s. We will not allow guardians, like the 18 year old friend next door. Heres a link to show you around the village! We know you’ll support the village during your stay! http://www.gaysmills.org/
Come out for the time of your life and share some fun times with Jerry smiling down on you!
