I know, I’ve Been Neglecting You…but here is your First Friday & Awesome Free Events Line-up for September 4-6!

Dearest Fabulous Readers,

I know I’ve been neglecting you of late, and for that I apologize. The main reason is I just returned from that big crazy arts festival in the desert where we burn things, otherwise known as Burning Man. I brought my Black Rock Portrait Project out there once again, and the prep work for that and for the trip itself was hugely time-consuming, among other things. But I’m back! And here with your September First Friday line-up and awesome Free stuff to do this weekend…

My Favorite Pic for the Weekend…Saturday’s TOUR DE FAT Free Freaky Adult Fun in the Park (City Park that is) with live music, games, and bikes bikes bikes. Bike ride registration is at 10am, the fun in the park rolls all day long. See the full schedule HERE.

Saturday is the monthly Free Day at the Denver Art Museum

I know it’s not technically on the weekend, but Monday is a Free Day at the Museum of Nature & Science.

September is a BIG First Friday night in Denver! The Arts Districts will be in full swing tonight. The weather is cool, so break out your favorite Fall sweater and boots and go see some art tonight. Here is the First Friday line-up courtesy of Denverarts.org…

It’s a June First Friday! All Sorts of Delights this Weekend…

asld

 

It’s a great First Friday in Denver! The weather will be cooler, a nice time to be outside…

My TOP PICK for this weekend is the Art Student’s League exhibit. I go every year. FREE to attend, and pick up some new art from Denver’s up-and-comers. It’s always a good time! http://asld.org

This weekend is also the People’s Fair downtown: http://peoplesfair.com FREE admission

And if the People’s Fair is too big for you, try the smaller and charming Highland’s Street Fair  http://highlands-square.com/StreetFair, also FREE of course.

FREE First Saturday at the Denver Art Museum too!

 

My idea of a perfect weekend? FRIDAY: First Friday on Santa Fe Drive, cocktails at Interstate. SATURDAY: Art Students League festival, Brunch at Lucille’s  SUNDAY: Highland’s Street Festival.

Here is the line-up of great art openings this weekend, courtesy of DenverArts.org:
