This Week in Arts & Culture: Fall Festivals and a Reason to Get Creative

Riot Fest 2013

If the likes of old school hip-hop group Public Enemy, pop punk boy band blink-182, indie darlings Best Coast or the legendary Iggy Pop are on your radar this weekend, you must have tickets to Denver’s long-anticipated Riot Fest. Rock on!

 Boulder International Fringe Festival

Can’t make it to Riot Fest this weekend? Have no fear! Head up to Boulder for the International Fringe Festival for independent art, theatre, live performance, films, and workshops. 5280 breaks down the top Fringe events this year for Fringe newbs.

Check the Boulder Fringe official calendar for all events, including daily donation-based morning yoga classes at the Boulder Agora.  Proceeds benefit Boulder Flood Relief.
