Do Not Miss the Antique Row Block Party!

bp2By Rachel Hoffman
   One of my favorite events of the summer is the annual Antique Row Block Party. This year the event is slated for Saturday, August 12th from 10AM-5PM. It is a chance to get out and explore some of Denver’s unique shopping and dining opportunities.

   My mothership is Turn of the Century Antiques which is located on 1475 South Broadway. We have been in our current location for 28 years, and one of the things I love most about our shop is that it looks like a giant pink cupcake from the street. Have you been inside? There are many stores like mine who have been faithful local merchants on Antique Row for more than 30 years, but with that, Antique Row has been expanding. Within the last year, we have welcomed several new shops including bookstores, a fantastic flower shop, new restaurants, and a hip clothing store. These local businesses are on the 1100-1800 blocks of South Broadway. One of the most important ways you can serve your community is supporting local businesses and artisans.

The whole stretch of Antique Row will be alive with energy, sales, and entertainment. Named the top place for antiquing, Denver’s Antique Row is a cultural destination that serves everyone’s interests. From shopping opportunities in every niche of collecting to the hip (and delicious) restaurant and bar scene, Antique Row is a hidden gem in Colorado. The block parties have evolved over the years, and the 2017 block party is gearing up to be an event you do not want to miss. Activities will include a live rockabilly band, face painting for the kids, vintage car show, restaurant food and drink specials, cute girls serving free hot dogs, and open houses of all the antique and vintage shops.
