Faces in the Crowd: Behind the Scenes

With a month until the Dolores River Festival, Elaine Chick is burning the midnight oil trying to put on the best festival ever. Elaine, director of the festival, puts forth heart, soul and years of experience in planning big events. She also manages the Sophia Peace Center, and still makes time to stop and smell the flowers in Dolores.


A feature of The Dolores Star that matches faces with names of the people who make up the town of Dolores and keep it going.

Gareth Martins has been the music director for the Dolores River Festival for as long as anyone remembers. The music line-up just gets better each year with Gareth behind the wheel. No grass grows under Gareth's feet as he also works full-time at Osprey, takes his daughter on local adventures, and is quite the jazz musician. Just another Dolorian with many hidden talents.
