Denver Station 4 Block Party
On August 12th, 2023 Denver Fire Department held a block party at Station 4, 1890 Lawrence St. celebrating the reveal of the completed mural and historic markers to commemorate Denver’s Historic Chinatown hosted by CAPU – Colorado Asian Pacific United. A fun event for the whole family with food trucks, games and fun activities. In the late 1800’s there was a thriving Chinatown located in LoDo. After Denver’s 1880 Anti-Chinese Race Riot, discriminatory legislation, and a xenophobic society, there was little to no evidence of its existence. CAPU has been working on raising awareness to celebrate their very own Chinatown story.
