The F. Cosmo Harris Gospel Stage is a popular Festival venue that allows the audience to witness the tradition and art of gospel music. The festival theme “Rock Steady” is truly exemplified on this stage where self-interpretation is the expected in African American gospel music. Saturday’s stage will feature a tribute to Denver's media legend, F. Cosmo Harris, for whom the Gospel Stage is named, musical education on gospel music through history, and a Gospel Theatre presentation.
