Celebrate the Spirit of the Mile High City
with Denver Days Events and Service Projects
Mayor Michael B. Hancock
envisioned a city where residents are more connected to the
communities they call home. Five years ago, he turned that vision
into reality by creating Denver Days, a program during the first week of August
that encourages neighbors to get to know each other through
picnics, block parties and service projects.
This year's Denver Days
events will be from August 3-11. Events that have a
"neighbor-to-neighbor" focus and service projects that
have a neighborhood-improvement focus will receive planning
support, waived park permit fees (for picnics), free street
barricades (for block parties) and free advertising on the Denver
Days website and Facebook page.
