The jam band, Phish, announced yesterday that due to an ongoing issue with plague in prairie dog colonies reported at the the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge this summer, they will be cancelling overnight camping for the Labor Day concerts and restrict all parking to asphalt lots, out of a abundance of caution.

All camping tickets and RV tickets (and associated service charges) will be automatically refunded within the next few days.

Fortunately, the Tri-County Health Department has advised that Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (DSGP) is safe to host Phish’s concerts over Labor Day weekend.

While DSGP has significant asphalt parking on site, off-site parking will need to be utilized to accommodate all concertgoers. Free off-site parking and free shuttles at nearby locations will be provided, and details will be sent out once they are finalized over the next week.

Also, please note that due to these restrictions, vending will not be permitted on site as the area traditionally set aside for vending is no longer useable.
