Slow Food Denver is sponsoring the 3rd annual Locarama Diorama contest at the County Fair. Contestants will create dioramas that display their favorite farm, restaurant, market or garden that represents Denver’s local food scene. Anyone can apply their creativity and imagination!
When: Friday August 9 – Sunday August 11
Where: National Western Complex, 4655 Humboldt St., Denver, CO 80216. We’ll be in the farm and garden pavilion.
How can you get involved?
1. Stop by and see us at fair. While you are checking out all of the interesting booths and entries at the fair, find us and say hello or spend some time creating a local food masterpiece.
2. Volunteer. Help us staff the booth to share information about Slow Food Denver, help contestants with their dioramas and help keep the tables organized. Shifts are available from Friday 8/9-Sunday 8/11. All volunteers receive free admission to the Denver County Fair. If you are interested, you may sign up for a shift here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409044FACAA22A31-denver
3. Donate stuff. Can’t make it to the fair but want to help? We need materials donations – tacky glue, markers, tape, small artificial fruits/veg/plants (you must have a lot of these around, no?), seed catalogs, toothpicks, etc. Anything that would make for good shoebox art!
