As south Denver residents eagerly emerge from their winter hibernation and spring temperatures begin their halting uphill climb toward summer, thoughts turn to an appropriate celebration
to welcome back the blessed season of warmth and rebirth.
THE 32ND OLD SOUTH GAYLORD STREET MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND FESTIVAL welcomes holiday celebrants with three days of food, games and live entertainment for the entire family. Headliners this year include Hazel Miller, Frogs Gone Fishing, Nelson Rangell and other great bands.
What better way to reconnect with friends and neighbors than the annual Old South Gaylord Street Memorial Day Weekend Festival, set for Sat.-Mon., May 28-30, in the 1000 block of Old South Gaylord.
This year’s 32nd annual festival promises a fresh look, some new treats and a strong slate of live music throughout the weekend. Festival coordinator Laura Douglas told The Profile that to make the festival easier to negotiate, craft and clothing booths will be moved from the center of the street to the curbline, and food courts will be set up at both ends of the block. The main stage, which had previously been located mid-block, will be moved to the north end, near Tennessee Ave. The children’s festival will shift to the south along Mississippi Ave., and will feature additional inflatables to help the little ones burn off some steam.
While the entertainment line-up was still in flux at press time, confirmed acts include Hazel Miller, Laura Newman & AOA, the Johnny O Band, Frogs Gone Fishing, Raven & The Writing Desk, Leftover Salmon’s Bill McKay, and Nelson Rangell.
