The Grateful Garcia Gathering is now in its 10th year!
Jerry Garcia fans come from all around to dance and see some of the best jambands in the midwest at the 3G’s tribute festival honoring and paying tribute to the Jerry Garcia Band/Grateful Dead’s guitarist Jerry Garcia. It also marks the celebration of Jerry Garcia’s 71st Birthday, and it is the 18th Anniversary of Jerry Garcia’s untimely passing. It’s also a time when many fans pay tribute to remember other Grateful Dead members like Ron “”Pigpen”” McKernan, Keith Godchaux, Brent Mydland, and Vince Welnick.
Surviving Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart are still touring and bringing fans enjoyment with their music!
We have leased the campground venue for Jerry Garcia’s birthday on August 1-4, 2013 – at Camp NCN Black River Falls, Wisconsin for our 10th annual 3G’s festival.
