2013 FESTIVAL 38

Our 3rd Annual Festival 38 took place on SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 2013,  and was shping up to be our biggest event yet, until a large storm cancelled to fun early.  While we were disappointed with the weather, we had a blast celebrating culture and community with our north Denver neighbors. We had a stellar entertainment lineup including, the Denver North High School Cheerleaders, Mariachi El Rey, Zumba Fitness, Emilio Emilio and the Tennyson's Tap All-Stars, Dotsero, and Hot Lunch. Check out all the pictures from the event on Facebook here!

2012 FESTIVAL 38
We were blessed with the most fabulous weather for our 2nd Annual Festival 38 held on Saturday, August 4th, 2012!  Attendance was estimated to be over 4,000 people!  Our carnival rides were a big hit with the kiddies, our craft booths and vendor booths made visitors aware of cool new artisans and service providers, and our music lineup rocked the night away!  Our mini-farmers market was provided courtesy of Chlorophyll, Inc., which promotes hydroponic gardening and supporting local growth of healthy fruits and vegetables.  The Navajo Street Arts District provided painting opportunities for children, and local artists displayed and sold their beautiful artworks.  Zumba Colorado got the crowd jumping and dancing to latin beats!  Our musical groups included Mood Express, Doc Brown's Blues Band, Hot Lunch, Tony Exum Jr., and the Moses Jones Band, who closed out the festivities with a bang!  Make sure your calendar is marked for the 2013 Festival 38, coming up soon!
