South Dakota Brings Mount Rushmore "Rock" Stars to Denver Day of Rock

Posted by

This Memorial Day Weekend, Denver locals can jam out for free with America’s favorite “rock” stars of Mount Rushmore (George, Tom, Teddy and Abe) at the Denver Day of Rock, a yearly festival uniting the community through music and family friendly entertainment while also raising funds to help Amp the Cause. As a sponsor of the event and to kickoff the unofficial start of summer, the South Dakota Department of Tourism will be bringing a massive replica of the iconic Mount Rushmore (aka the state’s most famous rock), along with tasty treats like Thomas Jefferson’s original vanilla ice cream recipe and a mini stage for patriotic performances. This legendary Mount Rushmore supergroup thrives in front of an all-ages crowd, making them a natural fit for Denver Day of Rock.
