June 1: Greeley Unexpected Campaign Kick-off Event at Friday Fest

300x250-GU Kickoff-1

Join us for another huge party at Friday Fest to kick-off the summer and launch the sixth year of the Greeley Unexpected campaign.

This free event on June 1 includes an outdoor concert, giveaways, and children’s activities. The kick-off event is part of Friday Fest on Greeley’s downtown 9th Street Plaza starting at 6 p.m. with the free concert beginning at 6:30 p.m. The entertainment includes music, fire spinners, face painters, balloon artists, and more.

The band is Pink Hawks, an Afrobeat / Chicano Hip-hop orchestra from Denver that will exceed your expectation for live, high-energy, and entertaining dance music.

This is also the first opportunity to see the stories and images chosen to represent Greeley for the 2018 campaign. Greeley Unexpected tells the city’s story with events, amenities and more that exemplify what is surprising and exciting about the city.

This is the first Friday Fest of the summer and a Go-Cup event. Adults are allowed to purchase and enjoy an alcoholic beverage at any of the establishments in the Go-Cup district and take that beverage on the plaza for concerts and other activities. The Friday Fest/Go-Cup concert series organized by Greeley’s Downtown Development Authority runs every Friday, June through September.  For more information regarding Friday Fests, visit
