“Denver Arts & Venues is pleased to announce that applications are now open for Five Points Jazz Festival vendors.
Applications are being accepted for food trucks, food tents, nonprofit booths, corporate booths, artisans, sponsorships and premium vendor spaces.
“We are really excited that this year we are incorporating a zero waste goal,” said festival organizer Brooke Dilling, Denver Arts & Venues. “We are asking that all vendors provide only compostable or recyclable packaging, utensils, plates and cups, and through our waste program, we will be providing trash sorting, recycling and composting.”
This year’s Five Points Jazz Festival will take place May 18, 11 a.m.-midnight, with vendors on site until 8 p.m. when outdoor programming ends. The 2018 festival featured more than 40 bands on 10 stages. Despite inclement weather, more than 30,000 people attended the event in 2018.
