Wind Rider 2017

In addition to groovy performances from the top jam bands, funk acts and bluegrass groups, Wind Rider Mountain Festival will also hold a sanctioned Kansas City Barbeque Society Master Series meaning the best grillers, smokers and barbeque fanatics will converge on the Sierra Blanca for an all out battle for the title of best barbeque. Festivalgoers who purchase weekend passes, whether standard or VIP, will be treated to free tastings.

To complete the festival experience, Wind Rider Mountain Festival will feature camping just to the right of the Lower Moonshine Trail for $25 and RV camping for $35. Wind Rider Mountain Festival also marks the kickoff of Ski Apache’s summer operations and festivalgoers can take advantage of all the amenities Ski Apace offers over the summer including mountain biking, hiking, disc golf, gondola rides and the longest zip line in the continental United States.

Three-day passes for Wind Rider Mountain Festival start at $85 with VIP packages starting at $140. Stay tuned to the Wind Rider Mountain Festival Facebook page for more updates and the next batch of artist announcements.
