Final Friday Music Walk & Urban Bazaar May 29

Final Friday Music Walk & Urban Bazaar kicks off it’s fourth year of community collaborations with a district-wide event in the up-and-coming RiNo Art District on May 29th 4pm – 10pm outdoor, 10pm+ indoor.


Final Friday is a conscious collaboration of community resources that occurs on the last Friday of the month(s); May through August. Participating businesses, community arenas, and a variety of venues open their doors to musicians, bands, and performers to emphasize the real love of Denver – MUSIC and COMMUNITY. On Final Friday the River North Art District is transformed into an open sourced marketplace atmosphere offering local food, goods, and live music. This free-flowing format allows community members to create a raw level of exchange, and allows consumers to interact directly with the local resources of entertainment, goods and services.

This music and arts festival provides attendees with an intimate opportunity to enjoy activations starting around North Walnut and Blake streets and throughout the River North Art District, Denver Colorado. Each Final Friday hosts up to 25 bands on three main outdoor stages, and includes dozens of participating neighborhood venues, who individually host performances within their own establishments – all in one evening of programming. Each venue/stage will boast exciting and relevant local talent with genres ranging from Alternative, Punk and Rock to Hip Hop, Electronic and many fusion sounds. These venues are amongst the neighborhood’s existing art galleries, bars, design shops, retail, restaurants and offices.
