Fab Fridays in July


Join the Durango Business Improvement District (BID) in a celebration of our Downtown businesses during our Fab Fridays in July. Fab Fridays are one part of a larger plan to get customers into your businesses after the slow start to summer due to 416 fire.

Each week BID will be hosting a celebration for a two or three block section in Downtown Durango. Think of it as a two or three block party, without closing any streets. The event will give businesses the opportunity to showcase their business to visitors and locals alike. BID asks you to show off some of the unique and distinctive parts of your business, or just offer something fun for the public.

When? Events will occur on three Fridays in July. Time: 5-8pm.

What do you need to do to participate?  Participants need to offer something fun and interactive for the public. This can be in the form of a demonstration, a class, games or more. We encourage you to do something unique for your business, however if you can’t find something that will fit, you can offer live music or food for your customers.
