COUNTDOWN TO MELTDOWN
BLUEGRASS IN THE SCHOOLS
For 25 years, Durango Bluegrass Meltdown has brought quality bluegrass music to schools in La Plata County. The Bluegrass in the Schools program started small with only one band performing bluegrass music at Durango High School. It has since expanded to about a dozen schools in Durango and neighboring communities.
The Durango Bluegrass Meltdown is a 100% volunteer-run festival. We couldn’t do it without our loyal sponsors! Special thanks to all the folks who support us.
On Friday, March 13, Colorado Governor Jared Polis directed all events hosting over 250 people to cancel due to growing concerns with COVID-19. It is with great sadness that the Board of Directors must follow this directive and cancel the 2020 Durango Bluegrass Meltdown, slated for April 17, 18, and 19. Although we are all heartbroken, we support this directive as the most prudent and responsible way to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
As a nonprofit organization, the Meltdown has always run on a tight budget, and we are asking our loyal Meltdown supporters and community for your help. The costs incurred leading up to the 2020 Meltdown are significant, and we ask for your help in alleviating this financial burden by choosing to convert your purchased ticket into a 100% tax-deductible donation to the Meltdown. We know these are trying times for everyone, and want to provide current ticket holders with the following options.
- Roll your ticket over to the 2021 Durango Bluegrass Meltdown, happening April 16, 17, 18 of next year.
- Convert your ticket to a tax-deductible donation, and we will provide you with a letter for tax purposes. The Durango Bluegrass Meltdown is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation.
- Opt for a full refund. We will begin issuing full refunds starting 3/31/2020. Please allow 14 days for processing.
We respectfully request your decision by 3/31/2020.
The best way to contact the Meltdown is through email: firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will do our best to respond as quickly as possible.
The Meltdown Board of Directors asks for your patience while working through these details. The Meltdown will work to celebrate its 26th year in 2021 with your support. We sincerely thank you for your understanding and are wishing you to remain in good health.
