PHOTOS: Sundown Colorado lights up the Tivoli Quad
The state's first music festival for the sober-curious took place on the Auraria Campus this year.
Sundown Colorado, the state’s first “detox” music festival, returned this year on Saturday, Sept. 24 on the Auraria Campus’s Tivoli Quad. The alcohol-free event focuses on wellness, connection and dancing.
Amber Handby, a 2012 graduate of Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Marketing program and one of the Alumni Association’s Top 10 Under 10 award winners, along with her husband, Mike Handby, organized the event.
The festival has been described as an event for the “sober-curious,” a movement that encourages a sober lifestyle and, said Amber Handby, redefines what it means to be alive.
“I’m doing what I love, and I want to see more people doing what they love,” she said. “So when you’re sober-curious, I think you’re waking up to your infinite potential.”
