Join us at two community festivals this weekend!

Join us this weekend for two festival events celebrating community, culture, and placemaking! Both events will feature food, games, and other family-friendly activities, including interactive displays showcasing how to make our streets and public spaces more people-friendly!

Little Saigon Night Market

Friday, June 21, 5pm – 10pm

Drawing upon community input from our placemaking survey, we are hosting the Little Saigon Night Market! This one-day demonstration project will use low-cost materials to test out designs that could be installed more permanently in the future, including wider sidewalks, pedestrian lighting, and landscaping. You’re invited to this FREE community event at the Asia Center on South Federal between Tennessee Ave and Mississippi Ave to enjoy food from local restaurants, live music, family activities, and more!

303 ArtWay Community Festival

Saturday, June 22, 10am – 3pm

The 303 ArtWay Community Festival is an opportunity for advocates, artists, community residents, and city leaders use quick, on-the-ground improvements to set a vision for longer-term safety changes that align with the Vision Zero goal of zero traffic fatalities and serious injuries. The proposed 303 ArtWay Heritage Trail is a 4-mile pedestrian and bike route connecting the 40th and Colorado Transit Station to Holly Square and the Dahlia Campus for Health and Well Being in Northeast Park Hill. The vision of the project is to create a people-friendly path that encourages walking or bicycling activity, increases safety and celebrates the rich cultural history of the Northeast Park Hill community.

Slow City: One Day in Denver was a collaborative project led by our partners at Walk2Connect. On April 26, 2014, 27 people walked 13.5 miles across the city of Denver in search of experiences that fuel the yearning for a slow city. A slow city where people get out of their cars and connect with the delightful and gritty nuances that make Denver home. And, where people travel at a speed where they can connect with their environment and one another.

Our project was part of the larger One Day in Denver city-wide, participatory media event. The resulting media will be showcased in an interactive geo-tagged archive and a TV series on the future of the American city.
