The evening’s festivities will be held on all three levels of the McNichols Building, with access to Civic Center Park, where guests can gather together, taste the global fair from Comal Heritage Food Incubator, dance to the eclectic and energetic vibes of two of Colorado’s most exciting artists, and explore the three special exhibits.

In addition, several local artists will present artworks in the Cultural Intersections Artists’ Marketplace, an art fair curated by the Denver Conference Planning Committee. Cash or check may be required for purchase.

Comal Heritage Food Incubator is a lunch restaurant + training program started by Focus Points Family Resource Center, a non-profit that serves families in the Globeville and Elyria-Swansea neighborhoods. Its goal is to provide skills in culinary arts and business as a platform for economic development to aspiring women – many originating from Mexico, El Salvador, Syria, Iraq, and Ethiopia – to maintain and celebrate their traditions through entrepreneurial ventures.
