“Berkeley Latino CultureFest” 2015
Co-Sponsored by Westcloud Consulting www.westcloudconsultingllc.com ph. 720-938-0233 & Jazz del Barrio www.reverbnation.com/jazzdelbarrio ph. 720-299-3440 with support from community group “We Are North Denver”, North Denver/Berkeley-area citizens and businesses
The underlying philosophy is to highlight and celebrate the history of North Denver and to provide a platform for locally-owned business, especially those that may not be known to the newer residents. This begins with consideration toward the following cultures: Italians, Native Americans, Mexicans and Chicanos, with others.
Family event, going from 7pm-1am, for ages, with presence of underage individuals permitted, according to liquor licensing rules.
Evening Concert at the Oriental Theater on 44th and Tennyson, featuring the Latin Grammy nominated Albuquerque, NM-based Cumbia artist Micky Cruz as headliner. The cover charge at the door is $15 for adults 18 and older and $5 for 5-17 year olds. Pre-event tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for young people.
Possible additional elements: A mural contest, for North Denver high school students compete for a trophy, bragging rights and their art being the basis for the proposal for a mural or hanging at some location in the neighborhood. Voter registration and other activities will inform and empower.
