Jam band to headline concert at AVMA Convention 2018

If you haven’t already decided to join us in Denver for AVMA Convention 2018, here’s some news to help you make up your mind: The popular jam band O.A.R. will headline a concert exclusively for convention attendees at Denver’s beautiful Sculpture Park.

O.A.R. (... Of a Revolution) has been making music for more than 20 years, filling arenas and amphitheaters with fans eager for their fun, relatable music and themes of celebration and affirmation. They're best known for hits like "Crazy Game of Poker," "Shattered" and "Love and Memories," and we couldn’t be more excited to have them as the headliner for the concert on Sunday, July 15, at 6:30 p.m.

The concert, sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim, also will feature party band Sweet Diezel Jenkins as the opening act – plus eats from the tastiest food trucks in the business. A portion of all food truck purchases will go to help veterinarians care for animals with the support of the American Veterinary Medical Foundation.

Bring the whole family! Tickets are just $10 for adults, and children 18 and under are free.
