Just share a picture at the festival with #coorslightsprf and your vote for: Cleaning the River, Education Programs, or Building River Parks and Trails. One voter will win beer for a year!

The Coors Light South Platte RiverFest is taking place in Confluence Park — 2250 15th Street, Denver CO — and along Little Raven Street in Denver.

Come for Saturday, Sunday, or both — June 25-26, 2016. Saturday hours are 10am to 8pm, and Sunday hours are 10am to 6pm. Celebrate this riparian treasure with your friends and community members through a wide array of activities.

In 2015, over 20,000 people from Metro Denver and beyond attended the Coors Light South Platte RiverFest. The event benefits The Greenway Foundation. For the past 40 years, The Greenway Foundation has worked to reclaim, restore, and revitalize the South Platte River and its tributaries in Denver. These efforts have led to the construction of over 100 acres of riverside parks, over 100 miles of interconnected greenway trails, and the elimination of over 250 sources of direct pollution into our urban waterways.
