Join the Colfax Ave Business Improvement District on Saturday, August 12th for the 2nd Annual Art-i-fax Street Party! Meet us at the intersection of Colfax and Park Ave for a day of live music, a variety of street and performing arts, local food from Spices Cafe, 3 Guys Pies, and Denver Fresh Mex, beer from Great Divide Brewing Co., and community engagement to celebrate Colfax.
Art-i-fax will feature live music from FaceMan, Foxxes, Gun Street Ghost, and Electric Thinking Machine. Stop by and watch local artist Mythica create a live chalk art masterpiece. Local comic artist, illustrator, and author of 30 Miles of Crazy, Karl Christian Krumpholz, will be there showcasing his true-ish tales about the denizens, bars, and characters of the city.
Art-i-fax has something for everyone, from fitness activities with Green Door Fitness and JumpBunch Denver - Sports and Fitness for Kids to games and crafts for kids with Denver Public Library. Scraps' compost bike will also be on site for all of your composting needs!
This year's theme is "Reflections" - the idea is to pay homage to the people and events that helped shape Colfax, while also reflecting upon what kind of community we want to foster in the future. The party is part celebration, part demonstration. We'll be shutting down Park Ave from Colfax to Humboldt so attendees can experience the space as a public plaza and let us know what kind of programming they'd like to see in a space like this on Colfax.
We'll also be honoring a couple of very special community members with the inaugural "Characters of Colfax" awards! Did we mention admission is FREE? See you there!
