      Denver Mod

      Mid-century modern fans, it’s that time year again! Now in its 13th year, the Denver Modernism Show is streamlining its name to Denver Mod, with a new logo and a beefed up entertainment schedule. Hosted by Dana Cain Events, and sponsored by Adrian Kinney, Denver Mod is held at the National Western Complex (4655 Humboldt St, Denver, CO 80216) August 23-24-25. The popular event celebrates furnishings, home decor, fashion, art and electronics from the 50s, 60s and 70s.
      Friday night’s Preview Party starts at 5:00 pm with the exclusive VIP hour for those who want first dibs on the shopping before the public is allowed in at 6:00. The Tiki Bar and Atomic Glow-in-the-Dark radioactive lounge will be open all night. Art Awards for the Denver Mod Art Gallery will be presented Friday night at 6:30 pm, followed at 7:00 by the popular Miss Modernism Pageant. Gracie G’Night and the Go-Go Delights will take the stage to round out the party, which closes at 10:00 pm.
      Vintage camper/trailer tours are again, a staple of the Friday and Saturday show lineup, hosted by Friendly Average Campers of Colorado. Several Atomic Age related lectures and slideshows will be presented over the weekend plus Mid-Mod neighborhood tours will be presented by Denver Modernism Week (denvermodernismweek.com).
      Saturday kicks off with the Retro Food Spectacle, a delicious taste of vintage dishes served up along with prizes for the crowd favorites. Saturday’s “Bombshell” fashion show, with a bikini finale (a nod to to the Bikini Atoll atomic bomb test), will be another Main Stage highlight. Saturday winds down with Happy Hour events and drink discounts in the Tiki Lounge from 3:00 – 5:00 when the show closes.
      On Sunday, SACK (Sunday Afternoon Car Klub) will host the annual Motorama Car Show featuring a plethora of category prizes and ribbons, leading up to the $200 cash prize and trophy for Best in Show. The show features the best of mid-century auto design, from big fins to muscle cars and more. Sunday also offers up atomic era home ads and “Do’s and Don’t’s for Renovating Your Mid-Mod Home” from show sponsor and Denver Realtor and preservationist Adrian Kinney. Kinney will also have a visitor lounge on the show floor. Visit his website at www.comidmodhomes.com.
