Hard to believe this is the last weekend in January, but it's true — so let's make this one memorable. There are almost too many laughs to be had, social movements to join and, of course, beer to drink. Check the Westword calendar for even more fun.
Music, food and art to benefit the homeless, at the Capitol today.
Denver Homeless Out Loud Facebook
Right to Rest Fest 2017 Colorado State Capitol
2 p.m. Friday, free
Support those whose rights are infringed upon every day. For the folks whose voices are not heard, we have organizations like Denver Homeless Out Loud fighting to get a proper bill of rights drafted for the less fortunate. To celebrate the cause, there will be live bands, food, art and presentations about the group's mission. Let's get our community together in harmony for all.
Fire Arts Festival The Riverwalk Center
5 p.m. Friday-Sunday, free
Fire is just plain badass. The color, the heat, the danger, the beauty — it's a powerful force to be reckoned with, and some folks have mastered how to harvest it. Take a trip up the hill sometime this weekend for statues ablaze, dancers aglow, music to match, and projects to take home with you.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE...
Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
