Old Town Arvada, Colorado

The Duke Street Kings' 18th annual Blues & BBQ for Better Housing Block Party is coming up! On July 12, 2015 folks from all over the Denver Metro area will be heading for Olde Town Arvada again for the best little Blues Festival west of the Mississippi. Over the last 17 years this festival has donated over $130,000 dollars towards building homes for families in need. Last year we raised $27,500. In 2013 we were a Silver Sponsor for the Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter Build. We got to build houses with Jimmy, Rosalyn and Garth Brooks! We need your help to make it even better this year. Bring your awesome arts and crafts, or your tasty vittles and help keep our 5000+ blues enthusiasts happy and satiated. Or push the volunteer link and sign up to be a volunteer. Or Just put it on the calendar and come out and have a great time!
