Michael Franti will Rock Winter Park’s Springtopia

April will be rocking at Winter Park Resort with a full lineup of live shows throughout its month-long Springtopia celebration, concluding with the much anticipated FREE concert on April 22, featuring the funky, reggae beats of headliner Michael Franti & Spearhead.

As springtime hits the Rocky Mountains, Winter Park is set to host one of this season’s most anticipated events, the Springtopia finale concert, which kicks off at 12:30 p.m. with local favorite Hunker Down, followed by Denver’s own The Rick Lewis Project. Then Winter Park will “Say Hey” to Colorado’s beloved Michael Franti & Spearhead as they take the stage to conclude the fun-filled afternoon. Then on April 23,  Winter Park Resort will bid farewell to the 2016-17 season with Monster Energy® Spring Splash®, the 49th annual pond skim, the oldest such event in Colorado.
