Live Music

Great music sounds better outdoors and at high altitude and will lift your spirits, where the strums of guitars and the sound of voices fill the evening sky.  The farm has two distinctive beautiful music venues: The Mountain View Stage and the Historic Barn. The setting of Zenzen Gardens is picturesque with unique art sculptures in lovely flower gardens, wide open fields with pink flowers of sweet peas or large round bales of hay ready to be picked up from the fields. The farm is set below the majestic mountains of the beautiful North Fork Valley, between two little towns Paonia and Hotchkiss, Colorado. This year, 2022, is the fourth year of amazing music on the farm.

The Mountain View Stage...

...was purposely set amongst the majestic view of the West Elks Mountain Range and the calming serenity pond. The stage is beautifully designed with its mighty tapered columns and open dormered roof covered in Dragon Armored rusty metal, simply stunning!  Built in 2021, the stage has held some incredible acts including Sheverb, a punk surf band from Texas, and a Gypsy Jazz Band, La Pompe, from Denver, and many other acts.  Take off your shoes and put your toes in the lush white clover lawn, throw down a blanket, relax, decompress and enjoy the sounds emanating from the stage. Dancing is highly encouraged! The night sky is magnificent too, where you can lay back and look at the beauty of the Milky Way and the constellations. Food, Beer, Wine and CBD infused mocktails are available for purchase.

...enjoy life…

The Barn...

...Red and Big, the barn is just cool! The colors of sunset and twilight sneak through the wooden slats of this 130 plus year old classic barn with its 50 foot vaulted ceiling strung with bare bulbs that creates a beautiful glow.  The barn is the highlight of the property and people love it! The barn has hosted acts such as Pete Kartsounes from Big Bend Oregon; Tim Veazey, who has played for Princess Margaret, Ted Turner and played with the Almond Brothers; to Paonia’s own story teller Jo Morley the new album releases of Sarah Off and Jeanine Renee. The old grainery in the barn was transformed to be the drinking outpost where food, beer, wine and CBD mocktails are sold.


...the place to be…
