Mayor Hancock Announces the Return of Denver Days in 2021

Published on June 07, 2021

Mayor Michael B. Hancock today announced that applications are now open for the 9th annual Denver Days celebration beginning July 31 and running through Aug. 8.

“After the past year of a pandemic and social distancing, the spirit of Denver Days is more important than ever,” Mayor Hancock said. “Providing our residents that opportunity to help re-build community spirit following a period of not being able to gather together is another step in our recovery, and I encourage everyone to get out and celebrate their neighborhood, community and city.”

After a re-imagined 2020 Denver Days – featuring walking celebrations of community-hosted parades in each of Denver’s 11 council districts – Denver Days 2021 is returning to its traditional roots of “neighbors meeting neighbors.”

Annual participation in Denver Days celebration features hundreds of neighborhood block parties, social events and community service projects during the nine days from Saturday, July 31 through Sunday, Aug. 8. Any Denver resident who would like to host a Denver Days event can go to for additional information and permit processing.

The 9th annual Denver Days celebration is made possible by the generous support of community partners including Comcast, Denver Health and Xcel, and the city’s Office of Special Events, Department of Transportation & Infrastructure, Department of Parks & Recreation, and Agency for Human Rights and Community Partnerships.

Denver Days was developed in 2013 by Mayor Hancock to align his vision of promoting neighbors meeting neighbors through neighborhood celebrations and encouraging participation in community service-oriented projects. The overall goal of Denver Days was to create a spirit among residents that they take an active role in making their city a great place to live and work.
