Volunteers needed for fun September events!

by Jessica Vargas on September 6, 2019

Summer may be almost officially over but there are still plenty of fun outdoor events coming your way! Join WalkDenver and our partners at events around the city celebrating cultural heritage, street art, and people-friendly streets. 

September 13: Mid-Autumn Festival with the Friends of Little Saigon

The Friends of Little Saigon and the Far East Center will be celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival on Friday, September 13, at S Federal and Alameda. Our second Asian-style night market event will feature street food from all over the world, a variety of vendors, live entertainment, and a children’s activity area. We need help with: loading supplies at the WalkDenver storage unit on the morning of the event; set-up, staffing, and tear-down during the day of the event; and unloading supplies from the truck back into the storage unit the day after the event.

September 20: PARK(ing) Day with the Denver Streets Partnership

PARK(ing) Day is an annual event that repurposes curbside parking spaces into spaces for people, known as parklets. This year, the Denver Streets Partnership is collaborating with SPIN, the Better Block Foundation, the Downtown Denver Partnership, and Denver Public Works to celebrate National PARK(ing) Day in Denver on Friday, September 20. The DSP will be hosting our own parklet at the Dairy Block on Wazee St and 18th St, complete with seating, hammocks, games, and greenery! We’ll need help with: loading supplies at the WalkDenver storage unit the day before the event; setting up, monitoring, and tearing down the parklet at the Dairy Block on the day of the event; and unloading supplies from the truck back into the storage unit the day after the event.

September 28: Intersection Mural Painting with the Denver Community Active Living Coalition

This fall, the Park Hill neighborhood is working with Denver CALC and the Community Streets Program to install two intersection murals on Saturday, September 28, at Park Hill & Stedman Elementary Schools in time to celebrate Walk to School Day on October 2. Two additional murals at Hallett and Smith Elementary schools are planned for next spring. This event will be looking for volunteers to paint, help chalk the murals, and set-up/tear down. Two-hour shifts will be available between 8am and 2pm. For more information, contact Kayla Gilbert at the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment via email at Kayla.Gilbert@denvergov.org.
