2015 Capitol Hill People’s Fair

Saturday, June 6, 2015 – 10AM to 8PM
Sunday, June 7, 2015 – 10AM to 7PM
@Civic Center Park – Denver, CO

GREAT ENTERTAINMENT:  If you’ve been in Capitol Hill you know the great diversity and originality of its buildings and residents. We feature the same kind of great diversity and originality in our entertainment. Whether it’s pop, gospel or country, rock or blues, we’ve got it all. Through our application process the genres are scored separately to assure a wide range of entertainment for the entire family.  You name it, we’ve got it. 

The application process begins with an online application that will be reviewed by our selection panel consisting of members of the Entertainment Committee, Fair Management, and members of the local entertainment community.  Entertainers will then be invited to our live auditions, the UMX (Ultimate Music Xperience).  The UMX takes place at the end of March and is open to the public, who will also have the opportunity to vote for their favorite bands.

If you are in a band or solo artist, or are in a dance or cultural group and would like to apply to perform at the 2014 People’s Fair, please fill out our ONLINE APPLICATION (downloadable application and stage plot) or call the CHUN office at 303-830-1651 to be added to our entertainment email list.

**It was a difficult decision, but this year the People’s Fair will only have 3-4 entertainment stages.  Along with this reduction in performers, we will no longer have a cultural performance stage.  Unfortunately, we will not be taking applications for dance groups, buskers, drama groups, choir groups and cultural groups.  If the opportunity arises at a later date this year, we will contact you.  To be added to our entertainment email list, please call the CHUN office at 303-830-1651.

The Ultimate Music Xperience (UMX)
