The Past is Present (and Future!): How Local Heritage Fosters Integration @ Greeley City Hall Community Room, Lower Level
Mar 6 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am

Learn more about Local Heritage and Integration!

A local study has shown a unique way that local history can bring cultures together. Dr. Mike Kimball is Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Northern Colorado. He shares what he learned from a 3-year research collaboration in Greeley.

The project was a joint effort between UNC,  Centennial Village Museum, Greeley high schools, the Immigrant and Refugee Center of Northern Colorado, and families from local immigrant and refugee communities. This project found that through education and history, we can find commonalities and make deep connections. Greeley’s turn of the 20th-century immigrant past can help 21st-century newcomers build a sense of place and social capital in their new home.

The City of Greeley Communications & Engagement Office is offering free training opportunities. These classes promote diversity and inclusion in our Greeley community. The classes are free.  Please RSVP before the day of the class.

Greeley Blues Jam @ Island Grove Park, Arena
Jun 9 @ 11:00 am – 11:00 pm

Greeley Blues Jam: “It ain’t nothin’ but a party”

The Greeley Blues Jam is a family-oriented atmosphere.  It’s an event where everyone can expect a wonderful Blues experience. Great food and drink, merchandise vendors, ample free parking, plus camping & RV sites available just outside the Island Grove Arena.

Expect lots of food vendors on site or pack a picnic lunch, leave it in your car, and you can come and go from the arena and enjoy the park. Ticket holders will be stamped and allowed to re-enter at any time. Don’t forget to bring your picture I.D.

Plan on visiting the intimate “Blues 101 Stage” sponsored by the Colorado Blues Society. Here kids of all ages have the opportunity to learn about the music which is part of our national heritage and the foundation for most of our popular music. See and meet some of the most talented young blues performers from Colorado and around the country. Get here early (gates open 10:30 a.m.) and the Party continues until 10:30 pm. There are two stages inside the arena enabling continuous music for over 11 hours.

It all adds up to two amazing days of non-stop Blues… always remember our goal and our motto: “It ain’t nothin’ but a party.”

More information and other ticket locations are available on the website .greeleybluesjam.com.

Greeley Garden Tour

Save the date for the Greeley Garden Tour!

The Greeley Garden Tour is on Saturday, June 23.  Tickets go on sale in mid-May.

The self-guided tour stops at some of the best gardens in the area. Tour volunteers and property owners are at each stop to guide visitors through each incredible garden. Guides provide additional information on plants and landscape. Come and get some new ideas for your yard.

This year we are trying something new. In the past, gardens were located in various areas across Greeley. The 2018 gardens are in the same general area to avoid excessive driving for our guests.

The cost of a ticket is only $15. The Tour supports the Poudre Learning Center.  The Poudre Learning Center is an outdoor education facility offering students, old and young, the opportunity to discover the great outdoors of what is Greeley and Northern Colorado.

Contact us if you would like to be a Greeley Garden Tour sponsor in 2018. Sponsors get an ad in the Greeley Garden Tour Ticket booklets. The price range is $75 to $400 dollars to sponsor the event. Each sponsor gets an ad in the tour booklet.

The City of Greeley Water Conservation Program is a co-sponsor of this event.
