Don’t fleak-out but Denver Flea, an urban market extravaganza/party, officially returns for 2015 and it’s promising to be more fleatastic than ever. This year there will not be one or two Fleas but four markets throughout the year including Spring Flea on April 17-18, Summer Flea on June 27- 28, Fall Flea on September 12-13, and Winter Flea on December 5-6. Spring will be hosted at the hip RiNo warehouse, Bindery on Blake where as the locations for the other three are TBA.

303 Magazine is particularly stoked for this rad event since it gives visitors the chance to meet and shop goods from Colorado’s most creative and cool artisans while chowing down on great food and booze.
