Days are getting longer and calendars are filling fast as Summer quickly approaches. Make sure to keep Saturday June 4th open and join us on Gregory Plaza for the inaugural Black Hawk Founders' Day Festival.

This will be the "official" grand opening of the Black Hawk HARD district and the newly opened shops including basin + bend, Mountain Poppy Boutique & Gift, and The Woodbury Collective. JKQ BBQ will also be celebrating their newly opened bar & restaurant just opposite Gregory Plaza in the historic Crook's Palace.
