Focusing on the area around the Bluebird Theater, this part pub crawl, part block party has encouraged shops and restaurants along East Colfax Avenue from York Street to Colorado Boulevard to bring their business out to the sidewalk. A ticket to the shindig gets visitors tastings from sixteen eateries, including Tommy’s Thai, Bastien’s, Fat Sully’s and more, plus a chance to peruse local wares while enjoying live music and street art.
“The vision of Tasty Colfax is to bring awareness to the community of these unique retail businesses. This strip of Colfax has a lot of mom-and-pop shops, Colorado start-ups and restaurants that are unique to the area,” says spokeswoman Kate Stephenson.
The fun begins at 5:30 p.m.; two outdoor stages will host music from artists like Orange Peel Moses, Dead End Drivers and the Wild Riders while mural painters and chalk artists decorate the blocks where businesses will be strutting their stuff. An after-party will follow at Park House, 1515 Madison Street, starting at 8 p.m. Tickets to Tasty Colfax are $25 to $30; get yours, along with more information and a list of participating businesses, at tastycolfax.com.
