Default Question about Denver Octoberfest

Hey, did anybody worked at Denver Octoberfest? How do we get in? I contacted the organisers on facebook but they never replied, so I wonder - can we crash it or you have to be on performers list etc? What is the situation in Denver nowadays - do we need a permit?

I'd not crash it, if you're making the trip from New Orleans. You could very easily be run of... Also, you're gambling it being unworkably cold in late September/early Oct. You're better off trying mid summer.

It also depends on your show. If you're a circle act, Boulder is far better. If you're a small semi circle, Denver will be just fine. I have no opinion of Ft Collins, but it's sounding pretty nice.

I've never worked Denver for October Fest but have worked many October fest in Boulder .That's the first week in October.It's always a good get the heck out of Colorado week end before wenter hits. That puts you in NOLA for about the 2nd. week end of Ocober when the crouds are good and the weather is just cooling off nicely .If you crash the festivals in Denver and happen to get caught you can work just off there site on the 16th. st. mall area.

Thanks! I do not really like crashing festivals - does anybody know how I can get in touch with organisers? I do face-painting, so i do not mind being a street artist and paying something for the space - I just can't figure out who is running it? I also want to get year-round street performers permit for Denver - where do we get these and do they issue them to face-painters? Is there a waiting period or you can get it right away?

This # gets you into automated messaging system - let's see if they call me back...I will also mail them a promo. Have anybody worked there and have a contact for street performers coordinator? Thanks!
