This year, we ask Denver Days hosts to register their event AFTER receiving proper permits from different city agencies. In our updated registration form, we will ask for permit numbers.
If you are planning an event in a park, when applying for a permit, make sure to specify clearly that your event is a Denver Days event.
Only once you submit your registration form will you be eligible to receive Denver Days benefits such as waived park permit fees and free street barricades for residential block parties.
Additionally, this year we will be placing a cap on the number of barricades provided so completing your registration form is crucial as barricades will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
Park picnic: August 1, 2017

Mayor Michael B. Hancock envisioned a city where neighbors not only knew their neighbors but as a result felt safer and more connected to the communities they call home.
Five years ago the Mayor turned that vision into reality by creating Denver Days, a program during the first week of August that encourages neighbors to get to know their neighbors by hosting block parties, picnics, and service projects with the focus on small, organic gatherings.
To be considered a Denver Days event, events must fit any to all of the below criteria:
