City Spirit Barbeque

 

 

The City Spirit Barbeque takes place once a year to honor and thank Denver’s hard-working city employees by providing them with a great time and lunch. Come show your spirit and have some fun with your co-workers!

Please note that the City Spirit events are only open to City and County of Denver employees; these are not public events. You'll need to show your employee ID to pick up your lunch.
