Totally Tennyson Saturday, April 29


While most attendees just come for the fun; to relive their memories of the 70’s or to imbibe amidst 80’s-inspired costumes, Totally Tennyson was started as one of the noblest fundraisers in town, disguised as the best annual adult party in Denver.

You don’t have to be a parent to come party at NW Denver’s 7th annual Totally Tennyson, presented by Nostalgic Homes, on Tennyson Street, April 29, from 4 to 10 p.m. Raising funds for 18 participating NW Denver Public Schools, this event has donated more than $250,000 in the past and hoping to raise another $60,000 this year! Who knew dressing up like Mr. T or rubbing elbows with Richard Simmons and Madonna helped expand our Denver kids’ minds?!

Limited tickets now available for this April 29th street party — featuring destinations from bars, restaurants, shops, live music and more. Enjoy live music, a variety of cool destinations and activities, this street crawl on Tennyson runs from W. 35th to 46th Avenues. Tickets to this unique experience begin at $35 with ticket proceeds going directly to participating schools. After the main event, your ticket also allows you to enjoy a lively concert by 6 Million Dollar Band. Get your tickets  NOW!

Eventbrite - Totally Tennyson 2017 - presented by Nostalgic Homes

Totally Tennyson is a 70s-80s-90s-themed street crawl event style fundraiser celebrating all things from those decades. Enjoy food, drink, and music supplied by the generous Tennyson Street businesses. A cash costume contest and a performance by the Ultimate 80s Experience and 6 Million Dollar Band culminate the evening at the Oriental Theater.

Four volunteers needed

Volunteers work day-of, receive free admission, and if Brown has more than four volunteers, Brown gets a bonus! Sign up to volunteer here
