Arvada Marketplace Family-Friendly Grand Reopening Event @ Arvada Marketplace
Oct 21 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

 In celebration of the shopping center’s recent revitalization, redevelopment, and to welcome its many new retailers, Arvada Marketplace is set to host a free family-friendly Grand Reopening event this Saturday, October 21, from 11am-2pm. Located on the southeast corner of Wadsworth and 52nd Avenue in Arvada, Arvada Marketplace features retailers like Sam’s Club, Bennett’s BBQ, HuHot Mongolian Grill, Red Robin, and is now welcoming Menchie’s, Costa Vida, First Watch Daytime Café, Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, Yellowbelly Natural Chicken, Newk’s Eatery, Michael’s and Ulta Beauty to the mix. Most of these tenants will be open for business for the Grand Reopening. Others are expected to be open by the end of the year.

The Grand Reopening celebration begins at 11am with a ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring Arvada Mayor Marc Williams after which guests can enjoy live music from local band the Bird Dawgs and check out free samples, giveaways, and promotions from the shopping center’s many retailers exhibiting at the event. Other activities will include: a climbing wall, inflatable slide, balloon artist, face-painting, and touch-a-truck for the kid who loves big vehicles, courtesy of Arvada’s emergency services.
