The kids are already back in school. Am I getting old? When I was in school we didn’t have to go back until after Labor Day. Anyhew…the fun doesn’t have to stop. Here is the list of free, fun stuff to do in Denver this weekend. It looks like all the free fun to be had occurs this Saturday.
2nd Annual Antique Row Summer Fest
Saturday, August 13th
1200 to 1800 S. Broadway
I guess last year’s fest was so successful, despite the recession, that they are doing it again. The Antique Row Summer Fest combines “Antiquing” with music, food, sidewalk sales and raffles. Antique Row is located on South Broadway between Evans and Alameda. It is sprinkled with various antique stores ranging from kitschy to sleek Scandinavian. Like looking but not interested in buying? There is a large ARC Thrift store and the Halloween popular Flossie McGrew’s along the stretch. You’ll find their prices slightly more agreeable for your budget.
Enter in the raffle for a $1000 shopping spree, peruse the sidewalks (some stores are offering up to 50% off) and listen to live music. From 1:30 to 3:30, Stanley Milton’s Mean Streak will be playing in the parking lot in front of Turn of the Century Antiques (1475 S. Broadway). World Class Accordian Player Ron Tomocik will be visiting several stores along the row as well. Check out the vintage Scooter Display at Spencer House Antiques (1420 S. Broadway). Bring your old tchotchkes to Finders Keepers at 1451 S. Broadway for a complimentary evaluation between 1pm and 3pm.
Street parking is plentiful and free. For more information, click here:

The AIDS Walk Colorado raises funds for the Colorado AIDS Project and more than 20 other outstanding AIDS service organizations. The largest and most successful in the Rocky Mountain Region, the AIDS Walk Colorado draws more than 8000 Coloradans from all corners of the state. It is a time to remember those we lost and comfort and fellowship for those who are affected by HIV/AIDS. Be sure to view the AIDS Memorial Quilt on display.
The Celebration of Life Festival is accompanied by live music, food and beverages. The AIDS Walk Colorado Volleyball Tournament is being held in conjunction with the Colorado Gay Volleyball Association this year. Don’t miss the Diva Dash Stiletto Fun Run at 11:30am, it’s a laughable, crowd pleasing good time.
