LOCATION, since 2018 :
Home of Marc & Joan Buie & family

Longmont, CO 80503
Between Lyons and Longmont, just north of Hwy 66.
We suggest carooling when possible.
We also encourage camping onsite. There is plenty of room for tents.
RETURNING FEATURES THIS YEAR:
- New, local craft beers will be offered, after an extensive selection process
- This year we will forego live music due to logistical concerns. But there will
still be plenty of music.
We will provide all of the food, drink, & music!
Included will be bratwurst, kraut, roast corn, cheesecake,
potato salad, beer, and other goodies.
We will also have commemorative T-shirts for sale.
You are invited, along with family and friends (kids
welcome --- bring outdoor toys, games, or activities
to share with other kids).
It is not a pot-luck or BYOB -- there is no need to
bring any food/drink.
Cash donations are not required, but gladly accepted (Please help!)
We encourage you to become an Elite Bratfest Sponsor (EBS)
at the level of $30 or more per family (or individual).
Erika will be there to collect your donations again.
Please bring cash or check made out to her.
Please note that we have not raised the suggested amount for sponsorship
in the entire 16-year history. Prices of everything are rising, so we
hope you can help us out with additional donations.
Sustaining memberships also available (ask us about them).
Invited will include folks from SwRI, CU APS/LASP (including
students), Ball, NCAR, Lockheed, SSI, PSI, and others.
(not required, but REALLY, REALLY useful to plan):
To help in the planning, it is important that we
make a reasonable estimate of attendance.
PLEASE send info on whether you will attend,
number of people (if you can't decide on being
a sponsor, please send back the number attending anyway)
Please RSVP as soon as possible to:
If you can't/don't RSVP, you have no choice but to show up anyway.
