All raffle and festival proceeds go to support the work that the Lions Club does in the community throughout the year. Due to public health concerns, there will be NO kiddie rides or bouncy castles this year, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of fun.

Parking near the festival is extremely limited. The 8th, 9th and 10th Street neighborhood will be closed to through traffic and festival parking. Plan to park downtown in the public garages on Jackson Street, at the public lot at 311 10th Street, or ride your bike down.

Remember that all fireworks are ILLEGAL in the city limits of Golden, so leave the fireworks to the professionals. You can view the fireworks show from anywhere along the creek path, near Lions Park, and the Golden History Park.
