Wildfest to include tours of Hunter S. Thompson’s Owl Farm

Tours of Thompson's home and writing quarters to be held on separate day from festival

Wilderness Workshop’s fourth annual Wildfest music festival and fundraiser is scheduled for July 1 at Owl Farm.

The music lineup for the festival, scheduled to run from 5 to 10 p.m., includes three bands: World’s Finest from Portland, Oregon; the Railsplitters out of Boulder; and Pearly & Wood from Carbondale.

The festival also will feature food and drink, a communal mural project, educational offerings and a kid zone with children’s activities.

Tickets for the 50-year-old conservation watchdog’s Wildfest are $45 for general admission and $150 for the “Gonzo Ticket.” General admission tickets and volunteer sign-up available at http://www.wildernessworkshop.org.

For an additional fee of $50 a ticket, buyers can get a guided tour of Hunter S. Thompson’s home and writing quarters at Owl Farm in Woody Creek. The tour will be led by his wife, Anita, and retired Pitkin County Sheriff Bob Braudis. The tours of Thompson’s farm will be held the weekend of July 8, separate from Wildfest. Only 40 tours were available and are already sold out.
