Thank you southeast Denver for another great South by Southeast community festival!

7,000 people came throughout the day to enjoy the Denver Municipal Band, Lila Bloom, MLIMA, Irreverent Kings, Jimbo Darville & the Truckadours, the Colorado Symphony Brass Quintet, Wit's End Brewing, Strange Craft Brewing, Denver Beer Co., Comrade Brewing, Renegade Brewing, Colorado Cider CO., Perico's Tacos, Smokestack 70, Repicci's Italian Ice & Gelato and Hot Dogs by Henry. 

Kids kicked off the event with a bike parade and had fun playing with musical instruments, the giant bubble machine, Streetscape's kids' play area and yard games. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you to our 100 volunteers who worked incredibly hard to make this day run smoothly! We couldn't have done it without you. You are the best!

History of  South by Southeast (SxSE) 

South by Southeast (SxSE) was developed after an extensive visioning series to find out what southeast Denver residents wanted to see in the district. Community members expressed a strong desire for improved restaurants and retail, walkability and bikeability, and a community gathering place. While we continue to work to create this grand vision for the area, planning and development can take a very long time. So, we put together a one-day community festival to showcase all the possibilities and opportunities available in southeast Denver. We enlisted the help of our working groups to plan the first annual SxSE that was held on August 19, 2017 in Bible Park. We couldn't have done it without our great volunteers and working group members! Thank you!
