Celebrate Wheat Ridge and its one of a kind charm at RidgeFest. This full day of fun will be held Saturday, September 8 from 3-9 p.m., in the heart of the Ridge at 38 district. Localworks’ RidgeFest is a free event highlighting the unique character and culture of Wheat Ridge. The event will take place on the Green on Ridge at 38 (7101 W 38th Avenue).
The event will have fun for the whole family and will feature four bluegrass bands, a classic car show, cottage foods, vendors, food trucks, local beer and wine, lots of kids’ activities and more. This year’s headliner, Oakhurst, will take the stage at 7:15 p.m.
Back by popular demand is the Chalk Art Fest. Wheat Ridge resident, Olivia McLeod has a passion for chalk art, and last year, she and her family organized the Chalk Art Fest with the support of the Wheat Ridge Cultural Commission. Again this year, the artists will work all morning and afternoon to create works of art. Between 3-6 p.m., RidgeFest attendees will witness the artists finishing their pieces. After 6 p.m., attendees can view the finished work.
Those interested in showing off their classic car or their winning recipe can learn more at Ridgeat38.com. Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are also still available. Contact Carolyn Doran at CDoran@WeAreLocalworks.org for more information.
