Reflection Garden on Tap: Beer & Chalk Art Festival 2023

Join the 7/20 Memorial Foundation on Saturday, July 22, from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm for the 7th Annual Reflection Garden On Tap: Beer & Chalk Art Festival. All proceeds from event ticket sales will go directly to the 7/20 Memorial Foundation, allowing the 7/20 Memorial Foundation to continue its mission to be a healing resource for communities after mass tragedy.

Enjoy unlimited beer tastings from local breweries, chalk art exhibits, food trucks, wellness and healing booths, and live music featuring Brushfire and Harlotts in the Aurora Water Wise Reflection Garden located at 15151 E. Alameda Pkwy - NW corner of Alameda & Chambers, Aurora, CO 80012. This all-ages event is free, but a wristband for beer tasting is required for those 21 and over. You can purchase wristbands online here.

The design theme for the 22 chalk artists this year of BE THE LIGHT, is to mark the passage of 11 years since the Aurora theater tragedy. Each creation will inspire attendees to spread hope, love, and positivity in their lives and communities.

Why is the festival starting so early, you ask? Happening at 8:00 am is the 2nd Annual: The Hero’s Journey 5k Run/Walk. Afterward, participants can walk to the garden and check out the chalk artists; then buy something from the food trucks (who will have brunch options), listen to music, and be the first to start sampling the beer (ever tried a beer-mosa?).
