In an effort to keep Denver residents safe, the city will not be facilitating public gatherings for Denver Days. Now in its seventh year, Denver Days encourages neighbors to spend time together in community service projects and get-togethers.
Dozens of events will take place across the metro area from August 3 to 11. Nearly all are FREE and provide a way to give back to the Mile High City, as well as get to know the folks who live around you. Here are some of the events we found for 2019. If you know of any, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to add to the list.
