Have you checked out what is happening along East Colfax lately? Along the revitalized Colfax corridor from Josephine to Colorado, new restaurants and coffee shops abound. Check out three hot events this weekend including:
Colorado Black Arts Festival - colbaf.org
July 13-15, 2012, 10 am - 8 pm
Denver City Park West
The theme for this year is Art Reflects Nature, chosen to demonstrate Nature's role in African American Arts and Culture. Talents from the African American Visual and Performing Artists will take these ingredients and present a program that reflects our natural environment, through music, dance, the visual arts, crafts, cultural traditions and history. Two stages, 30+ performing artists and over 75 additional art & food vendors = something for everyone.
Second Saturday - mycolfax.org
Saturday, July 14, 2012, 7 - 10 pm
