On June 26, 2016, get together with others from the Northside to talk about local changes, share some food, and check out all kinds of wheeled vehicles. The Stompin Ground Games event runs noon to 3pm, and all are invited to be a part of the day and help with envisioning the future of Denver.
The event is more than a cookout or a car show; it’s about discussing local issues and the cultural path of Denver neighborhoods. Organized by Warm Cookies of the Revolution, a Civic Health organization, this informal gathering is co-sponsored by Guerilla Garden and We Are North Denver, with support from Imagine 2020.
Come to the La Raza Park, located at 1501 W 38th Avenue, Denver CO, for this community event. Bring family and friends, bring your own grill, and be sure to bring your own hot wheels — vintage cars, low-riders, bikes, skateboards, strollers, segways, etc.
At noon, check out the Monster Truck, Saints and Sinners Car Club, Sons of Italy motorcycles, Soap Box Derby, Roller Girls, visual art pieces, and cookies.
Cookies? Yes, there’s always cookies when Warm Cookies of the Revolution brings people together.
Plan to fire up your grill at 2pm. The organizers will provide conversation about public space like La Raza Park and changes going on in Denver neighborhoods.
Stompin’ Ground Games events are designed to engage people on civic issues with a little fun added to keep things light and interesting. This month is at La Raza Park — fitting with its mixed history of community gathering and civil unrest. It won’t feel like civics class, but getting together can help to get things done and help to make the Northside what its residents want it to be. It’s all about revolution. According to their website:
The Civic Health Club creates cultural programs that engage regular folks in civic life in meaningful, yet fun and exciting ways. We work with existing community organizations to produce events that combine the fun, light, and engaging aspects of community culture with topics and issues of civic importance.
We know that vital issues of Good Governance, Environment, Justice, Life-Long Learning, Family, and Work/Life Balance can be accessible and fun, and that the more we participate in these issues, the more power we have over decisions that affect our lives.
Spanish Interpretation available during the event. (Interpretación disponibles.)
Let the organizers know you’re coming to the Stompin’ Ground Games on June 26 — RSVP online. All are welcome, whether La Raza Park is near your old stompin’ grounds, your new digs, or just a place you care about.
