Fun on Federal started as a small effort to showcase a few new and existing restaurants along Federal Boulevard and the emerging W. 25th Avenue area of businesses, and has expanded to a family fun-filled event with musicians, jumpy castle, children spanish dancers, a face painter, and more.
Existing Federal staples as well as new emerging restaurants are participating in the event including Jack N Grill, Federal Bar and Grill, Sartos, Chili Verde, Corner House, 2914 Coffee, and more. Adams Murder Mystery Playhouse’s Coffin Bar will be open and for $5 at 7:45 you can participate in a 45 minute murder mystery! Tickets are only $10 and 25% of proceeds are being contributed to a local nonprofit, Colorado Youth for a Change.
Tickets are available for sale beginning at 5:30 at W. 25th and Eliot (one block east of Federal), and the event runs to 8:30 PM. Email us or call 720.364.8860 for more info. Hope to see you there!
