FREE for all ages! Jovial Concepts invites you to join us September 20th on the 16th Street Mall for the observance of the UN International Day of Peace. We are shutting down Glenarm St in the Denver Pavilions to bring you an action packed stage with great speakers and live music. We will have over 25 vendor and nonprofit booths filling the street and parts of the 16th St Mall. We will have a special craft beer in our garden hosted by the 5280 Burger Bar! Come on down and check out some great art, music, food, fun and find out how you can make Peace on Sept. 20th!
This is a day of non-violence and international cease fire recognized by the U.N. and allows much needed humanitarian aid into areas that are normally unreachable due to conflict. Though celebrated in many countries and other states, this will be one of the largest celebrations and awareness raising events for Peace Day on Sept. 20th in Denver!
