About - SINCE 2010
The Westwood Chile Fest is a one-day annual event, free and
open to the public that celebrates Hispanic culture, with a
strong focus on authentic food and the arts. Year after year, the
Westwood Chile Fest brings diverse communities together to
celebrate this up and coming southwest Denver neighborhood.
Free and open to the public, this celebratory event takes place along the Morrison Road Corridor, an area rich with makers, entrepreneurs, and artisans.
With diverse cultures and partners working together to cultivate this community event along with views of downtown and the Rocky Mountains on Morrison Road, it is no surprise that this event has become a unique community celebration in Denver and a Westwood favorite.
Westwood Chile Fest is produced by BuCu West, a non profit organization focusing on creating economic opportunities for local families. The event benefits the businesses, organizations, and neighborhood participants by celebrating culture, demonstrating a walkable built environment, and providing space for community gathering. The Westwood neighborhood has focused on preserving diversity in cultures through the creation of a linear marketplace along Morrison Road that celebrates culture, local businesses and is pedestrian-friendly. By closing Morrison Road to vehicles and combining a uniquely Westwood mix of vendors and entertainers all of Denver can share in this local vision.
celebrating "Business & Culture"
The Westwood Chile Fest is an annual event celebrating this southwest Denver neighborhood’s Hispanic culture and showcasing the best of what Westwood has to offer.
This year’s Westwood Chile Fest’s theme is Business & Culture.
The Morrison Road Corridor has a rich collection of businesses --
entrepreneurs, artists, chefs and bakers, stylists, and mechanics -- that pride themselves on their craftsmanship and services. Highlighting these businesses is another step towards putting Westwood on the map and establishing this neighborhood’s unique identity.
Likewise, it has always been important that the Westwood Chile Fest be inclusive and accommodating to families and especially children. While activities in prior years catered to younger audiences, this year’s activities will be inclusive for the whole family.
