The event roundup for the upcoming week boasts a selection of choices that embody the eclectic and exciting spirit of Denver and the surrounding area. Come out to laugh with the roster of stacked talent at the Crom West Comedy Festival, or polish up your armor for the Colorado Medieval Festival (or leave it be…no one trusts a Knight in clean armor). If you’re in the mood for music (who isn’t?) stop by the 45th Annual People’s Fair, or snag yourself a ticket to see the breathtaking Celtic Women at the Buell Theatre. Whichever artistic affair tickles your fancy, this week is sure to leave no Coloradans wanting for more.
