Art-i-fax: Generations | Colfax Ave. Street Party

  • Colfax & Park Ave Denver, CO (map)

Admission is FREE, so RSVP via our website to get a free drink too!

Meet us at the intersection of Park Ave and Colfax for the third annual free Art-i-fax street party and celebrate Colfax! Once again we’ll fill a pop-up public plaza with live music, local food, fun activities, interactive entertainment, and incredible art.

RSVP on our website to receive a complimentary drink courtesy of Argonaut Wine & Liquor! Claim your FREE drink at the “tickets” link above or visit 

Enjoy food from various Colfax eateries, including Smith & Canon Ice Cream, The Goods and Spices Cafe. Your favorite folks from X BAR will be pouring drinks at the bar. And, don’t miss the Colfax Cake Walk, featuring delectable desserts from Voodoo Doughnut! 

30 Miles of Crazy Comics' Karl Christian Krumpholz and handmade cards from The Gathering Place will make a return appearance, while Historic Denver will give mini history tours. Kids can enjoy story time with some well-read drag queens, plus a special visit from Denver Public Library's Wheelie the Book Bike. Pets are welcome too; visit the Peaceful Touch Pet Salon and Massage paw painting station to make art out of your dog’s paw prints.

We’ll offer live music from country darlings Chella & The Charm and dope Denver lyricist Connor Ray, plus a fashion show from Studio Colfax. You can even get your workout in with Green Door Fitness!

The party is part celebration, part demonstration. For the second year in a row, we'll be temporarily closing Park Ave from Colfax to Humboldt. Come to Art-i-fax and let us know what kind of future programming you’d like to see in a space like this. We'll also be honoring a couple of very special community members with the 2018 "Characters of Colfax" awards. 

In addition to the amazing friends above, we're thankful to our other sponsors for their support. Folks like Aponte & Busam Public AffairsArtHouse DesignFirstBank, Front Range Services, Illegal Pete's/Illegal Pete's ColfaxKentro Group, St. Charles Town Company, UMB Bank, and Wayne New, Denver City Councilman District #10, among other community partners, businesses, and local artists, all make this possible.

Interested in volunteering at Art-i-fax? In exchange for your time, you'll get an Art-i-fax t-shirt, Colfax swag, drink tickets for the event, and (perhaps most importantly) doughnuts! Email Michelle at to sign up.
