in 90 Days of Denver Summer

Green Spaces Colorado and Westword are teaming up to bring Denver a festival that celebrates LOCAL food, misic and culture in a sustainable way at the Green Route Festival.  Saturday, August 28th from 2-9 PM on 26th St. between Blake and Larmier – Denver’s RiNo Art District (River North).  Advance tickets are being sold now for $12/adult ($20 at the door) and kiddos under 12 are free. There will be Live painting, kid’s chalk area, fire dancing at dusk and Live Colorado music.

Sustainable food vendors include the vegetable oil/solar power run, Steuben’s Truck, the Steamin’ Daemon, City O’ City and Watercourse Foods’ brand new food cart.  Oh, how I love Denver food carts!  The food alone is reason enough to go to the Green Route Festival.  But let’s talk about the music with a little Rock by The Rouge – Denver’s next band going big time.  SOULAJU presents a mash up of progressive hip hop and Neo-Soul with world music influences.  The day also features Air Dubai with a Hip Hop base that is merged with some drums, bass guitar and trumpet completing a eccentric sound that is uniquely their own.

Denver’s RiNo District has slowly progressed with lofts, shops and music/event venues. The Green Route Festival adds much to the zest of the RiNo neighborhood, an art district coming alive.

Loving Denver Life,

Vali Hooker
