To celebrate the iconic street festival’s 20th Anniversary, Taste of Randolph has teamed up with VISIT DENVER, The Convention & Visitors Bureau in Denver, CO to construct the Denver Live on the Rocks stage – a scale replica of the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater, itself celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year. The stage will feature national headliners who originated in Colorado as well as daily chances for festival attendees to win an all-expense paid trip to Denver, including tickets to a concert at Red Rocks. On Sunday, June 19, four local Chicago bands – Zaramela, Akasha, Bailiff, The Ivorys – will play the WXRT “Road to Red Rocks” show, on the Denver Live on the Rocks Stage, to win a chance to perform at the real Red Rocks Amphitheater in July. The two wings of the scale reproduction will each stand some 70 feet long and 30 feet high, and will be hand-sculpted andhand-painted to mimic the venue’s iconic monoliths and red sandstone striations.
