Capitol Hill People’s Fair: June 4 & 5

Events, Food, Things to Do, What's New — By Jess Steinitz on April 30, 2011 at 10:25 pm

The Capitol Hill People’s Fair exists as a celebration of the diverse Denver urban community and its residents. On June 4th and 5th, artists from all over the U.S. and Canada will come to Denver to exhibit their original works — only handcrafted items are allowed in this juried exhibition. You will find one-of-a-kind paintings, unique hand-crafted jewelry, homemade baked goods, and all manner of arts and crafts to delight your aesthetic and culinary palate. Plus, there is a full program of events, activities, and entertainment for the entire family.

Back for another exciting year at the People’s Fair, the Wine Pavilion allows fairgoers the opportunity to relax in the shade, sip a quality glass of wine, and enjoy the sights and sounds from the Bandstand, which features jazz, big band, swing, and salsa music.

With over 250,000 fair-goers and numerous exhibitors, vendors, and volunteers, Civic Center becomes Colorado’s third largest city over the weekend. For two days, the streets are closed and filled with juggling clowns, face painters, arts and crafts, delicious food, and smiles as the people of Denver celebrate the Rite of Summer.

The fair will be open on Saturday, June 4 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Sunday, June 5 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The full lineup of entertainment and a list of participating artists is available online.
