Anschutz Block Party 2016, from above

With 20 popular food vendors, a ropes course for adventurers and a baby T-Rex for aspiring paleontologists, the Fourth Annual CU Anschutz Block Party turned into a smashing success.

On a cool fall day, the rain held off long enough for some 3,500 faculty, staff, students and community members to enjoy the weather, the music and the company.

Highlighting the big stage was Pandas and People, an alternative folk band that has been a recent headliner at concert venues across the area. MIX, CU Denver’s premier a cappella group and winner of the 2015 Macy’s All-School A Cappella Challenge, also provided entertainment.

Nearly 100 booths representing CU Anschutz organizations, departments and programs as well as community businesses and organizations offered everyone the opportunity to meet colleagues and learn more CU Anschutz and Aurora.
