Developed by Mayor Michael B. Hancock in 2013, Denver Days has been an annual program that has previously consisted of block parties, picnics and community events designed to help bring neighbors together.
This year’s events will look a little different. Proudly supported by Denver7, Denver Days 2020 will stage mini-parades – walking celebrations of community – through each of the eleven Denver City Council districts from Aug. 1-9.
Each event will be led by local second line style band Brothers of Brass and will feature “Love This City” artist Pat Milbery painting live on a flatbed truck.
Giveaways created by local artist Santiago Jaramillo will be awarded to randomly selected residents who post on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #DenverDays. In addition, community representatives will be featured in the celebration.
“During these extremely challenging times we have reimagined Denver Days to provide inspiration for our residents and enhance the idea of community coming together.
We encourage all of Denver’s residents to get out on their front yards or balconies in a safe and socially distant way to join in the celebration as we pass through your neighborhood,” Mayor Hancock said.
Parade routes and event schedules are posted here.
Parades will be held in one district each night at 6:00 p.m., weather permitting, and on both Sundays there will be a one parade at noon and another at 2:00 p.m.
