What is Wintergrass?
Wintergrass is a nonprofit, family-friendly Bluegrass music festival, with concerts and dances at 4 different stages. There are also music education programs for kids and adults, workshops, impromptu jams, and a chance to see and hear some great music. (Being a nonprofit, even if you don't need to pay a membership, they would appreciate a contribution, no matter how small).
While you can buy a ticket, we found there was plenty to see, hear and sketch in the lobby area, which is free. There were many impromptu jam sessions all over the hotel lobbies as well as vendors with instruments and other interesting items.

While you can park at the hotel, it easier and free to park in the Lincoln Square Mall just across the street to the south.
Meet in the "Winter Garden" (3 story atrium near Hyatt Regency hotel lobby) at 1000. We'll sketch until 12:30 and meet back in the lobby.
If anyone wants to then go for lunch after, there are many places within the Hyatt/Bellevue Place._______________________________________________________________________________
