Food drive for the Gathering Place – M.I.A. stage at the People’s Fair!

Musicians In Action-CO will be hosting a stage at the 45th annual People’s Fair on June 4th and 5th, where we will be collecting nonperishable food items for the Gathering Place (Denver day shelter for women and children experiencing homelessness and poverty).  Please dig into your cupboard and bring a can of food for this worthy cause.

This is also the 45th anniversary for the Capitol Hill People’s Fair.  Apart from music, food and a variety of vendors, the fair offers lots of family attractions as well: bungee trampolines, bounce houses, rock climbing, carnival games, a bubble tower and even a train.  The Street Side Mural Project is a live art competition that will also be accompanied by art classes this year (Art in the Park).  And there will be something like 25 affordable brews…please join us!
