Community Event: Artini
Join the Space Foundation Discovery Center for this 21+ offsite event.
The 2019 Artini, the official kickoff for this year's Arts month campaign, will take place on Friday, September 27th from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Mining Exchange Hotel (and the adjacent Gold Room). Hosted annually by the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, the Artini is a FREE, community celebration with live entertainment on multiple stages, lots of mixing and mingling, and the opportunity to sample signature martini's created by some of the area's top mixologists. Art + Martini = Artini!
The Cultural Office is excited to announce that BJ Estares & Route 61 will be the headlining musical act at the 2019 Artini! BJ Estares and Route 61 are a local band that has been entertaining fans with blues, classic rock and original music in the Pikes Peak Region since 2005, and they have worked consistently as a house band at Bronco Billy’s Casino in Cripple Creek for the last five years. During the Artini, BJ and his band will play three sets in the Gold Room from 5:30-8:30PM.
In addition, the 2019 Artini will feature a variety of other live performances, a DJ with dancing, a fashion show, aerialists, body painting, food trucks, tarot card readings, a photo booth station, hands-on art activities, and more! Throughout the evening, local mixologists from the 365 Grand Club properties will be creating their signature martini drinks, and competing to earn the title of “Best Artini Martini 2019.” Free tastings will be available, and voting by Artini attendees will determine this year’s winner. Multiple cash bars will be open throughout the hotel, and food will be available for purchase from the hotel and/or from a group of food trucks parked along Nevada Avenue.
A reminder that all attendees at the Artini must be 21 or older, and photo IDs will be required to enter the party.
