Following a 20-month transformative construction project, Brighton Boulevard, in the heart of the RiNo Art District, will celebrate its grand opening on Thursday, June 21 — between 29th St. and 38th St. An official ceremony and ribbon cutting with Mayor Michael Hancock, Council President Albus Brooks and RiNo General Improvement District Chair Anne Hayes will be followed by a street party at businesses up and down the corridor.
The formal ribbon cutting will begin at 2:30 p.m. at the intersection of 35th Street and Brighton Blvd., with the street party starting immediately afterward from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Various activities are planned at:
City Gate — 2890 Brighton Blvd.

Guests who make it to at least eight party stops along Brighton can return their passport to the RiNo Made store for entry in a drawing to win one of several prizes, including new bicycles, a night stay at The Source Hotel, food & beverage gift certificates and more.
Party guests can also search for 100 commemorative ceramic medallions, made by RiNo artist Jonathan Kaplan of Plinth Gallery. The medallions will be hidden along Brighton Boulevard and, if found, become a keepsake.
