What is Denver Days?
Mayor Michael B. Hancock envisioned a city where neighbors not only knew their neighbors but as a result felt safer and more connected to the communities they call home. Five years ago the Mayor turned that vision into reality by creating Denver Days, a program during the first week of August that encourages neighbors to get to know their neighbors by hosting block parties, picnics, and service projects with the focus on small, organic gatherings.
Denver Days Event Criteria
To be considered a Denver Days event, events must fit any to all of the below criteria:
- Neighbor to neighbor focus
