Today is Saturday, April 7th and coincidentally today I am sharing my personal selection of 7 special events for Colorado 4/20 weekend 2018. While it was insanely hard to narrow it down to just 7 events, I feel this mix truly has something 4/everyone! STONERS B WARNED. 420 has now GONE FULL WEEKEND in CO and scanning the horizon it appears it could turn full “bongathon”. =)
My “party mom” advice: take it easy breezy this 4/20 and remember slow and steady wins the golden green turtle race. Plan now to designate a driver for any events you are going to consume ANY sort of substance at. Make sure if you partake you take part in making sure you make it home safe.
And now for a little flashback to my first year living and blogging in Colorado.
Why? Because… “The seeds of the future can be found in the soil of the past.”
I remember the day I met Chris Anderson & The “Sunsquabi Boys” in Boulder, CO, the year was 2012 and I was a freshman in College. A mutual friend I met at JWU Denver campus that had gone to high school with Chris introduced me to the group. She invited me to an STS9 show that they were all going too at the chilly tail end of December at The Fillmore in Denver. I remember rocking the night away at numerous totally EPIC SunSquabi jam “after parties” on The Hill that year.
Though time has challenged all of us to grow and change to better fill the shoes of our larger SOUL PURPOSES, it was on that day 12/30/12, that the “Sunsquabi Boys” became part of my musical SOUL FAMILY and STS9 became one of my SOUL FAMILIES favorite bands.
I had no clue then that time would do such a diligent job at watering the lovingly planted SunSquabi seed, shifting and transforming the band for the better. The house parties I grew to love quickly were quickly traded for shows at some of Colorado’s best venues.
How beautiful it has been to witness some of my favorite musicians BLOOM under the spotlight of venues like Red Rocks. How special it has been to watch the band that I once attended CU house parties with EXPAND and start to sell out larger and larger spaces like The Fillmore. For all of these reasons and so many more, my #1 event for 4/20 weekend in Colorado is OPIUO + Syzygy Orchestra/ SunSquabi at Red Rocks, on Saturday, April 21st, 2018!
The rest of the events on this list are in RANDOM ORDER and are simply my personal favorite picks for 420 events in Colorado this year. While there are TONS of other events happening all over the state for 4/20 week in CO I have hand selected those on this list to appeal to a variety of different types of art and music lovers.
The list includes a “Target Audience” that I have pre-determined based on years of experience marketing different events in the Colorado scene.
The list showcases a wide range of locations and ticket price points that should allow most Colorado 4/20 goers to find at least one event that matches both their personal style and budget.
HERE ARE MANIFESTATION MEDIA’S TOP 7 EVENT PICKS FOR 420 2018 IN COLORADO!
This year has been healing and powerful. Like a phoenix from the ashes, we have arisen from the yuck that was the year 2016. We looked that damn horse that bucked us off straight in the eyes, got back up, “got that dirt off our shoulders”, and proved ourselves this year. Not because the world was watching and it was the “chic” or “fashionable” thing to do, but because our health and survival depended on it. 2017 WENT BY FAST because most of us have been focused on the correction of some part of our lives we find inadequate.
Our search for “the good life” & “true love” has brought about some BIG CHANGES that, at times, have threatened to throw us out of balance with the true rhythm of our hearts. Yet the more we search for THE TRUTH the more we realize that the goal has been and always will be the same…
Healing of The Earth. Unity. Oneness. Serenity. PEACE & LOVE FOR ALL. THIS YEAR, NEXT YEAR, FOREVER.
The spiritual family I come from recognizes dance as a form of prayer. Dancing in the new year is a tradition as old as time. A celebration of transition into 2018 is clearly in order, but with so many choices you might be considering giving up a magical night out and making it a magical night in instead. With all of the craziness going on in the world right now, who could blame you?
Regardless of whether you go to one of the shows on this list or elect to do something different this year, my prayer for each of you is the same. As one of my favorite songs of all time goes,“I hope you dance”. My hope for each of you in the new year is that you never lose your sense of wonder. Take a deep breath, let love in, let the year 2017 slip away, and DANCE IN THE YEAR 2018.

Happy First Friday in May to all my magical mermaids and manifestors near and far! I am very excited to share with you this week’s #ARTISTofTHEWEEK – DEREK CARPENTER aka ART OF ONE! Derek and I met years ago when we were both just starting our careers in the Colorado festival/art scene. I remember the day we met at Boulder Vapor House (BVH) like it was yesterday. At the time I was working as a Social Media Strategist & Event Production Assistant for BVH. I helped coordinate live painters for the very first “Hill Block Party” and he was one of them (see pic below). It is truly amazing to think about how much we both have advanced in our professional careers since the day we met. I feel we are both living testament to what a little hard work and focus can bring to your career. I am so proud to call him one of my friends for life. He has supported my vision for my Manifestation Media class series by attending my recent class at Bodywork Bistro on Instagram Management. Today I return the community love by showcasing a few of his latest works below and offering my fans a discount code for 20% OFF ALL ORDERS FOR THE NEXT MONTH on his new website store: www.artofone.org.

<<< FEATURED ARTIST >>> Lumonics Light & Sound Gallery “Mind Spa” By Dorothy Tanner
“It takes a few moments to begin seeing the colorful lighting around you as your eyes adjust. It takes a few moments more to grasp the beauty that surrounds you. Leave everything that you carry with you at the door; your uncertainty, your day of working that 9 to 5 job, because you have now entered into the serenity and positive light that is the artwork of a true legend.”

I had the pleasure of meeting this week’s #ARTISTofTHEWEEK in person at an amazing local Denver yoga studio and boutique – The Sol Shine! The oh so colorful Lexis Krieg and I enjoyed meeting as if by magic at The Sol Shine holiday party on Dec 10th. It was a delightful evening of music, fashion, and local art. After meeting the creative force and boss lady of The Sol Shine – Dannie Huggs, a few weeks before at the ARISE holiday soirée, I was inspired to make it a top priority to check The Sol Shine studio!
Stepping into the store I was immediately overcome by the wonderful smell of incense, a sensory bliss mix between herbal bath products, palo santo, nag champa, and LOVE. The size of the space and variety of products from around the world in the gallery really impressed me. I allowed my intuitive shopper skills to guide me to what really felt like it was mine. I ended up with a beautiful Lovestitch scarf that reads, “BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER” and a greet mala bracelet with opalite made by hand locally.
Meeting this week’s artist in person was awesome. I selected her for the feature because I immediately loved her colorful Colorado style. Her work is so affordable she makes it possible to buy her originals. You can see her collection in person now at The Sol Shine or check her out online via the links below.
Wishing each of a fabulous holiday season! I encourage you to support the growing local Colorado artist community by giving the gift of amazing art this season.
