HUGO, Colo. (CBS4) — The Colorado Prairie Music Festival will go ahead on Aug. 8 at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds in Hugo — but people who attend will have to sign a coronavirus waiver.
“By attending the event you absolve the Colorado Prairie Music Arts and Music Council, its board, volunteers and staff of any liability should you contract COVID-19,” the website states.
Organizers say all attendees are encouraged to wear a mask, practice “proper hand hygiene,” and practice social distancing. The website says Lincoln County has had just four confirmed cases of coronavirus.
Singer/songwriter Aaron Watson is headlining the festival.
Tickets are on sale now. General admission is $30 for adults and $5 for kids.
“Join us in Hugo, Colorado – deep in cattle country for an authentic western experience at the Lincoln County Fair! Come out to our free events for a day at a small-town county fair and stay for a night full of county music under a night sky, with stars untainted by the city lights,” the website states.
The free activities during the day include a CPRA Rodeo – “boasting some of the best cowboys and cowgirls in Colorado competing in events like Bareback Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding, Team Roping, Barrel Racing, and Bullriding!”
