Chive Fest Could Set the Tone for Future Events in Denver Parks

Chive Fest will bring two stages and eight bands to City Park this weekend. It's one of the first conventional music festivals to use the space, although other concert promoters have tried and failed in the past. In this week's music feature, now posted on the Backbeat blog, Gina Tron explains how Denver's policy on ticketed events in its parks has evolved and how Chive Fest managed to get the permits it needed.
