All cities have festivals; even small cities often have some kind of festival either in the summer or the fall.
- I live in a tiny Florida town, and every June they have the watermelon festival.
However, no one does festivals quite like Denver, Colorado. The Mile High City has festivals galore all year long. The pride festival takes place each summer in Denver. Denver politics are notoriously liberal, what with cannabis being legal, and one of the biggest pride parades, but even if you have a more conservative bent, there are plenty of festivals for you, too. There is a street art festival in Larimer Square where a hundred or more chalk artists converge and create their own unique image on the street itself. RiNo wakes up the weekend with the Friday night Bazaar festival where you can find food vendors, wine or craft beer, and music to suit any taste. If you like performance art, you can try out the Denver Fringe Festival that takes place in June. Progressive artistry abounds, which suits the progressive politics and laws of Denver. You can have a freewheelin time with legal cannabis, micro-breweries, or festivals like the fringe that showcase a more liberal art scene. If you enjoy the latest in fashion and want to be a tourist in Denver, you might want to come during fashion week. You can discover national brands or local boutique finds. Fashion forward Denver rocks the fashion festival. August brings FamilyFest, and it is a great way to spend time together with the kids and have an old fashioned wholesome time.
