Denver, CO Area
When & Where:
THE PLANNED VENUE HAS CANCELLED BECAUSE OF BANKRUPTCY
We will post the new venue as soon as possible
Colorado Motor Sports Park
2050 Peoria Rd, Byers, CO 80103
EVENT DAY INFO:
We were notified that they are going through bankruptcy proceedings and will not allow the event to happen as it may jeopardize their status in bankruptcy court. This was the first time we have heard anything about this and we’re shocked as to why they withheld this information and induced us to hold our event on their venue in the first place.
Here is what you all need to know as it stands right now:
1 - As a company, we will be pursuing legal action against the ownership group for breach of contract.
2 - We as a company will do what is right by all of our Denver participants, meaning we will either find a substitute venue in the next 45 days to announce or we will issue all the refunds. You will not need to wait until we settle the issue in court with the ownership group of the venue. We will be responsible for refunds IF we are unable to find another suitable venue in the area.
3 – With deep regret, we have to formally announce that as we are unable to use the venue, the event will not be happening.
Please keep a close eye over the next few days for emails from us as we will have an open channel of communication and be transparent with any updates or news on this.
Thanks everyone, we are working hard to make the best of this difficult situation for everyone.
THINGS TO REMEMBER:
- Bring chairs, and blankets as there will be some sitting while listening to the music provided.
- Please note that we do not allow outside food or drink at The Lights fest. Don't worry though, we make sure our events are packed with a variety of food trucks.
- Please bring warm clothing. We will sell merchandise that includes blankets and sweatshirts, but encourage you to bring warm clothing we know it will get colder and the night goes on.
