In case you haven’t heard, MCA Denver is turning 25 this year, so we decided to talk to human 25-year-olds about what it feels like to have a quarter of a century under their belts. We learned that being 25 is a complex time filled with uncertainty, excitement, confusion, and hope. It means noticing changes within yourself and unearthing who you are. Being 25 means having so much growth to look back on and just as much to look forward to in the years to come. In many ways, we as a museum feel the same.

The Second Annual Parade for the People celebrates the rich tapestry of Denver’s creative community. The parade is a human-powered parade (no-motorized vehicles) that celebrates the city of Denver and the many artists who call it their home. The Riverfront Park Neighborhood forms the backdrop for the parade, passing through Commons Park. The parade concludes at MCA Denver with food trucks, performances, and free admission to the museum. This event is free and open to the public.

The Parade for the People brings together artists, performers, dancers, musicians, and neighbors to parade through the  Riverfront Park Neighborhood in a glorious celebration of human expression.

The Parade begins at the City of Cuernavaca Park, passes by the Denver Skate Park on 19th Street, by Commons Park on Little Raven, and continues down 15th Street to end on 15th and Delgany at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The Parade is from 1–3PM and it is going to be maybe even too much fun!

Falcone Director Nora Burnett Abrams and leading blockchain researcher Amy Whitaker address these questions and more.
