DevouGrass is a family-friendly Music and Arts Festival held at the Bandshell in Devou Park in Covington, KY in the Fall. The date for 2015 is September 26. Created as a means for Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky to share its mission with the community, Thanks to our generous community, DevouGrass donated $10,000 to CHNK’s substance abuse disorder treatment program for teens in its inaugural 2014 year. In 2015, DGP is collaborating with the Devou Park Backcountry Trails Collective and Children, Inc. (as part of the Covington Project) to bring a children’s biathlon to DevouGrass. All proceeds will again go to CHNK. Attendance in 2014 was around 1000 people strong and we expec our community impact to increase in 2015.

DGP is collaborating with the Behringer-Crawford Museum in Covington, KY to build a Nature Playscape in its backyard. NaturePlay@BCM brings the Museum’s themes and educational opportunities outside into an environment where kids can truly experience History in Motion. NaturePlay@BCM is built on ADA compliant pathways and all major play features are inclusive, creating a truly unique space for all children to play, explore, and discover together. DGP is taking the lead in all facets of this project—from the initial design and construction to developing a continuing education plan. A plan for annual maintenance is also in the works.
