Expanding the People’s Fair
The People’s Fair is a long standing Denver community event (46 years to be exact!) and whether you venture down each year to taste the food or to scope out new local bands, the People’s Fair has played a vital part in celebrating the community of Denver and kicking off summer. When CHUN could no longer produce the event, TPP was thrilled to take on the People’s Fair and welcomed the existing People’s Fair Event Director to the team. With her years of expertise and our fresh perspective, the event will continue to celebrate Denver’s art, music and culture for years to come.
Getting a Facelift
First things first, the event needed fresh look. Hey, you try turning 46 and fabulous without getting a little work done. After really marinating in what the People’s Fair collectively stood for, we gave a tweak to the logo, keeping the iconic Capitol Building, and sent it strutting into 2017 with a fresh new website.
Not only is Team Player excited to honor the roots of this tradition, but to bring the focus back to Capitol Hill the neighborhoods beyond. What makes Denver an exciting and ever-growing city is all that the unique pockets have to offer – and we want to celebrate just that! Neighborhood breweries, restaurants down the street, local artisans, your buddy’s band – you name it, each area has got something special and we want to highlight that at the People’s Fair.
People’s Fair is known for having a diverse selection of vendors and food options. New this year, we’re doing away with pesky food/drink tickets to make the event more accessible for people. We’ll continue to have dozens of non-profits represented along with crafters, restaurants, food trucks and businesses.
Of course, the event is well known for showcasing music. That component will continue and be expanded with a national act to headline on Saturday as well as dozens of local bands throughout the weekend. Who doesn’t want to plant your butt in the grass for hours of great music? Thought so – see you there.
