What is Denver Days?
Mayor Michael B. Hancock envisioned a city where neighbors not only knew their neighbors but as a result felt safer and more connected to the communities they call home.
Four years ago the Mayor turned that vision into reality by creating Denver Days, a program during the first week of August that encourages neighbors to get to know their neighbors by hosting block parties, picnics, and service projects with the focus on small, organic gatherings.
Denver Days Event Criteria:
To be considered a Denver Days event, events must fit any to all of the below criteria:
~ Neighbor to neighbor focus
~ Service projects with neighborhood improvement focus
~ Cultural showcase events
~ Residential street events
~ Neighborhood focused at neighborhood (smaller) parks
~ Small business discounts/convenings for community members
Denver Days Benefits:
During Denver Days, the City offers waived park permit fees for Denver Days events. In addition, the City provides free street barricades for block parties.
