Hungry Farmer Bands’ Annual Thanksgiving Reunion

Join Stargazers for a very special tradition, The Hungry Farmer Bands’ Annual Thanksgiving Reunion.

Musicians never stop playing…they just change venues.

If you were in a local band in the 70’s and 80’s the place to play was The Hungry Farmer, a popular restaurant on Garden of the Gods Road known for its generous servings, country atmosphere and live music.

In 1979 the manager decided to have a big Thanksgiving Day meal on Thanksgiving Eve for all the musicians who did not have anywhere to go or any money to spend on the holiday. Those same musicians requested a post-meal jam session since they never got to play together and a holiday tradition was born.

The 38th Annual Hungry Farmer Bands’ Thanksgiving Reunion includes about 10 musicians from the Pikes Peak region and as far away as Iowa who get together to jam. The one prerequisite? Musicians must have played at The Hungry Farmer.

Friends and family gather together each year to watch the former members of long ago bands, including Fall River Road, Buffalo Dreams, Radford Lewis Band, Range Rockets, and Phantom Hooters.


Admission is 2 non-perishable food items or a small cash donation for Care & Share
