The Rocky Mountain Literary Festival is an annual gathering of authors, readers, and books to celebrate the importance of literature in our culture and education.
A passion for reading, the love of literature, and a sense of community inspired a group of mountain-area residents to launch this endeavor in 2015. Evergreen has long supported artists in many different categories such as fine art, music, and theatre; the founding of this event, added the art of the written word to that auspicious list.
In addition to celebrating the art of literature in our community, the Festival supports the mission of Bootstraps, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, which has been providing scholarships and interest-free loans for continuing education to mountain-area students with financial need since 1945.
Since the inception of the Rocky Mountain Literary Festival, proceeds from the event have funded close to $50,000 in scholarships. When you support the Festival, you support the love of literature and the future of the mountain community.
