• Well, That’s Embarassing…

    Yesterday I posted that the Green Route Festival was happening TODAY. When I went down to 25th and Arapaho, rather than a bustling festival, I met one farmer who hadn’t heard of it. I took out my Pad and Googled it, finding several entries, including:

    The Alliance link said Green Route:

    The 2012 Green Route Festival brings thousands of people to Denver’s Five Points District to celebrate local food, art, culture and live music featuring some of.

    But the link took me to:

    3rd Annual Green Spaces Full Moon Harvest Festival
    Which happens on September 29th.

    And this was the Twitter link:

    To investigate further, I drove down the street and walked into Green Spaces, occupied by one man at a desk who wondered who I was looking for. I asked about the Green Route Festival. He said it was Saturday the 27th. Of August? I wondered. No, he said, of September.

    I felt as if I’d been punked, but there the entries were…all giving the same info. The farmer I had spoken with saw them as well, and said, “Huh! Well, that’s weird!”

    Weirder still, I was the only person, apparently, who’d shown up for it, or who was confused by the wide variety of information.

    I wonder what happened to Green Route? Has it been transformed into the upcoming Harvest Moon event?

    I’ll find out from Jenny…
