Affordable Family Fun at the People’s Fair! This weekend

This weekend marks the 41st anniversary of the CHUN Capitol Hill People’s Fair, and as always, much planning has been done to ensure that families have ample opportunity to enjoy the festival at an affordable price!

Within the Kids and Family area located in TWO locations (in the interior of Civic Center Park and a Colfax and Broadway), there will be opportunities for free and low-cost family fun!  Along with the traditional bubble tower, there will be free crafts projects courtesy of KOSI 101, Home Depot Home Services, the US Mint, Wings over the Rockies Museum and the Girl Scouts on the interior of the park near the Seal Pond.   The People’s Fair non-profit showcase is nearby featuring exhibits from roughly 80 area nonprofit organizations, including several animal welfare groups.  The Denver Dumb Friends League returns to the People’s Fair this year with their Mobile Adoption Vehicle (located on 14th Avenue near Bannock Street).

Our People’s Fair carnival returns with inflatable bounce houses, obstacle courses, slides and other attractions as well as the highly popular quad bungee trampolines and a rock climbing wall.  Carnival attractions are located in both Kids and Family area locations.  People’s Fair tickets are available at the four main intersections of the park, as well as mid-Bannock, Mid-Broadway, and in the middle of the park.  The tickets are good for food at the food courts, beverages at booths throughout the fairgrounds, and the carnival attractions, pony rides, zoo, and hamster balls.
