About Jamming on the Jetty
On Saturday, September 17 from 2-7PM, the 6th annual “Jamming on the Jetty” music festival will take place at the Sloan’s Lake Boat House and Jetty on the north side of the park (Byron Place & Utica). This year’s jam-fest is more than just a kick-up your-heels and hang-out-to-music event, but instead, it is a community fundraiser hosted by the Sloan’s Lake Park Foundation whose mission is to help save Sloan’s Lake. Glenn Witman, Board Member and founder of the event said, “We believe in bringing our neighbors and community together to create positive change and know that music has the power to do so.”
Jamming on the Jetty is the Sloan’s Lake signature live music event! We believe in bringing our neighbors and community together to create positive change and know that music has the power to do so. #Savesloanslake
Since 2016, we have hosted four Jamming on the Jetty events with great turnouts and the community is hungry for more. The event hosts approximately 1,500 attendees from the Sloan’s Lake, Highlands and Edgewater communities and offers many enjoyable activities including free live music, beer stands, food trucks and local vendors. It’s a great time for all ages!
All proceeds go to the Sloan’s Lake Park Foundation, a non-profit committed to bettering the future of Sloan’s Lake through funding efforts to promote clean water and sustainability, create safe welcoming spaces, and provide program activities for all.
About Sloan’s Lake Park Foundation
Sloan’s Lake Park Foundation (SLPF), a non-profit 501(c)3 organization was incorporated in 2019. It is dedicated to improving the environmental health, sustainability, and beauty of one of Denver’s top urban natural assets. Board member, Dennis Ryerson, reflected, “Old Thomas Sloan didn’t know what he was doing when in 1861 he dug a hole for a well, tapping an underground spring that was the beginning of a 200-acre body of water that is a huge part of our neighborhood. The lake has seen an amusement park, a gun club, and multi-level cruise boats come and go. Sadly, in not too many generations the lake itself will go, as well, if steps aren’t taken now to rescue our local treasure.”
Community businesses and concerned neighbors have already helped raise $40K towards the costly, long-term remedies that are necessary, and hope to double that during the event.
A huge thank you goes to key sponsors Nostalgic Homes Group/Compass Real Estate, Hibler Group, Edgewater Public Market, Work Shop Colorado, Little Man Ice Cream, Commerece Bank and Lending, Exact Title, Hatch Realty, Team KC New American, milehimodern Realty, mhmlending, Joyride Brewing, Truckster app.
What’s happening now to #Save Sloan’s Lake?
Throughout the pandemic, Sloan’s Lake Park has offered refuge to thousands of North Denver, Edgewater, Wheat Ridge and Lakewood citizens escaping their homes. Ironically, the lake has had its own version of Covid in the last two years from massive fish kills to algae bloom that is equally as deadly to fish and pets. Rising heat, shallow depth – an average of a little more than three feet — poor hydraulics resulting in an inability of the lake to flush itself clean, all have combined for the illness affecting the body of water in Northwest Denver. The community is demanding change and wants to save this precious resource.
The Sloans Lake Park Foundation has been working with Denver Parks and Recreation to identify issues and solutions from forebays to dredging. This summer Denver Parks & Rec have started taking action with water quality testing, lake-depth studies, the installation of a test water aerator, and a survey of lake users to determine their level of awareness of the lake issues, their usage patterns, and their home cities.
The Sloan’s Lake Park Foundation is seeking donations, volunteers, and support. Be part of the move to save Our lake by contacting the foundation at www.sloanslakeparkfoundation.org or email email@example.com. Volunteers are needed for the event. Please consider donating an hour of Power to this important cause. Volunteers can sign up here.
