Wheat Ridge Scavenger Hunt

In August, Localworks coordinated the 2020 Wheat Ridge Scavenger Hunt. To complete this photo scavenger hunt, participants explored Wheat Ridge and found some really neat stuff, including public art, murals, urban farms, great local businesses and more! A big thank you to all of the participants. If you want to explore the submitted photos, follow the link below.

RidgeFest Deconstructed was a blast! A huge thank you to everyone who joined us, to our amazing volunteers, to the artists who shared their talents, to the bands who shared their amazing music, and to all of the local organizations and businesses (see below) that helped make this event possible.
