Y'All's Fair -- This Weekend in Denver

Fresh City Life is taking a break from making events for you at the Central Library -- and taking the show on the road for a weekend. Get your spurs on, cowboys and cowgirls, and giddyup to the Denver County Fair.

Our craft queen, Trish Tilly, has been hunched over yards of fabric, a sewing machine, hot glue guns, pots of paint and tubs of prizes for a couple weeks. We both decided that if we were going to represent Fresh City Life with a fair booth, it was going to be so flashy, over-the-top and just plain wrong, that it was oh-so-right. The only missing ingredient is you.

And here's a tease of what you'll find at the Fresh City Life booth in the Kitchen Pavilion: Look for our carnival tented booth of fat orange and white stripes -- full of visiting food vendors arranged by our friends at Whole Foods Market! These local food artisans will be holding court on one side of our booth. On the other side, we've got an old-fashioned carny game for you -- take a turn in exchange for signing up for the FCL and WFM newsletter (we never share email addresses, so you won't end up on a carousel of junk mail). You'll then have a chance to play our carnival game with great prizes, cool swag and even hilarious booby prizes. At the same time, you'll be registered to win one of five $50 gift cards to shop at Whole Foods Market! Yes, five lucky names will be chosen for this generous prize -- thanks WFM!

That's not all: Trish, when she wasn't putting our blue-ribbon booth together, was dreaming up a retro, carnival-inspired button-making craft. And you can make yourself a fresh button or magnet for free! Just step right up. Really, we'll have everything in our booth -- with the exception of livestock. Check out the schedule of local food vendors in the last photo. And come see us at the Denver County Fair.
