Second Annual Downtown Denver National Night Out

Save the Date – August 6, 2024 from 4:30-7:30PM at Skyline Park 1!

UpDoNA has again partnered with LoDoNA to host another National Night Out.  It’s a fun celebration intended to honor Denver Police and all first responders.  Last year we had fire trucks, mounted police, music, games and Bernie from the Colorado Avalanche.  Mayor Johnston spoke with us.  We gave away free hot dogs, soda and other treats.  We’re intending to make this one even better!  Come and join the fun!

What is Upper Downtown?

Formerly known as the “Central Business District”, we’re now Upper Downtown and we encompass a large section of the downtown area bordered by Lawrence Street, 20th Street, North Broadway, West Colfax and Speer Boulevard.

Our community includes over twenty residential buildings with a mix of condominiums, lofts and apartment rentals.  We’re also home to hundreds of businesses (large and small), as well as multiple parks, dining and entertainment venues of all types.
