Attendees of the 3rd Anniversary Celebration who plan on staying overnight should book their reservations as soon as possible. Visit the Local Accommodations page for more information on reserving lodging. We encourage all our guests at the Anniversary Celebration to visit the Monument and surrounding communities for the entire weekend surrounding the event. With the help of our Trip Finder, members and supporters of Friends gather to guide themselves through hikes, bikes, paddles, and other “Monumental Experiences” in the area.

If you or an organization you are part of are interested in supporting the event on the host or sponsorship committee, please reach out to us.

Thanks to our sponsors!
