About Summer Jam
In 2017, Castle Rock Summer Jam was started by local Castle Rock musicians, Bill Clarke and John Saunders. They were looking to provide an event that allowed the community to enjoy an all-day music festival close to home, complete with local food and beer vendors, all while making a positive impact in the community.
Each year Summer Jam proceeds support an organization in the local community. In previous years they have been able to support the Douglas Elbert County Task Force (now named Hope & Help Center) and the Foundation for Douglas County Schools.
Summer Jam has also been able to award numerous scholarships to local high school students who participate in music programs. In 2019, 18 students received a scholarship!
