The CU Denver Block Party is a free and public annual back-to-school event connecting the campus community with city partners. This year’s event will be held on August 24, 2022 from 12 p.m.-3 p.m. on Lawrence Street between Speer Blvd. and 14th St., in what is referred to as the university’s “Education Corridor”.
Now entering its 10th year, and anticipating more than 3,500 participants, the CU Denver Block Party has rapidly become a must-attend event for anyone who lives, works or studies downtown. The Block Party showcases the endless opportunities that CU Denver has to offer in business, arts and media, public affairs, architecture, and education. Some of Denver’s most popular food trucks will be serving up delicious options for lunch. The entertainment line-up is still being determined, but previous years have featured up-and-coming Denver acts such as The Burroughs, Wildermiss, Air Dubai, Petals of Spain, Bop Skizzum and My Body Sings Electric. The ever-popular DJ Chonz (a CU Denver alum) will once again be spinning in between sets and acting as emcee.
CU Denver benefits from strong partnerships with local businesses. In turn, local companies also benefit from their relationships with the university. To continue to offer this free, high-quality event to the public, we need support from sponsors. Sponsorship provides the opportunity to not only promote your business, but also truly support an excellent community event and CU Denver.
