This show, at the Denver Mart, ends tomorrow.

All Jacked Up ’13: 5th Annual Denver Lumberjack Party Grab a flannel shirt and head to The Tavern Downtown for (probably) the biggest lumberjack party in the world. Last year, more than 750 people attended! Drink specials, including a free Bud or Bud Light for those dressed in lumberjack attire, and raffle prizes are among the festivities. Suggested donations of $3 to $5 will be taken at the door, and proceeds go to Environmental Learning for Kids, a Denver-based non-profit that offers science education and outdoor experiences to underserved urban youths.

Sunday

Denver International Wine Festival Today is your last chance to check out this festival showcasing more than 400 international wines from 18 countries. If you’re feeling fancy, attend the Julia Child Tribute Champagne Luncheon featuring dishes from the famous chef’s All-American menu paired with selections from some of the top champagne houses in the world. The fest is donating a portion of ticket sales, and 100% of the proceeds of all silent and live auctions, to Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America.
