This concert, as part of Music Makes a Difference, is in support of Heroes on the Water. Be sure to visit their table when you come to the concert. Heroes on the Water helps veterans from all branches of the United States military unwind using the therapeutic qualities of fishing from kayaks. What looks like a day trip of paddling and fishing is in fact something much deeper and long-lasting.

In the event of inclement weather, outdoor events will be canceled or rescheduled. A determination of weather-altered plans will be made by 3 p.m. on the day of the concert. Check Watters Creek’s Facebook page for updates the day of the concert. Watters Creek Guest Services can be reached at 970.747.8000.
