DENVER – It’s claimed to be the city’s most original urban festival and for a third straight year, TheBigWonderful will roll into Denver this weekend.
Here’s what you need to know about the festival that celebrates Colorado’s eclectic culture:
1. TheBigWonderful has a new location
This weekend’s event is taking place in a vacant field just east of the old Denver Post newspaper printing facility -- at 4400 Fox Street -- where I-25 and I-70 meet.
2. Beer Fest, Bands and Bazaar
TheBigWonderful is hosting five different bazars throughout the weekend, as well as more than a dozen bands and a beer fest all day Saturday.
3. More than 130 pop-up tents from local businesses
TheBigWonderful activates otherwise vacant urban lots into thriving arts and a small business community, and they’ll do it again this year to help local business grow.
This year, TheBigWonderful has partnered with Re:Vision as a nonprofit partner.
A portion of the proceeds from the BeerFest will go toward developing local leaders, growing community food systems and building locally-owned economy.
5. Kentucky Derby Party
This year, you’ll be able to watch the 2017 Kentucky Debery on the big screen at TheBigWonderful.
