First Chair Festival

The Enthusiast Network will descend on Denver this October with two (2) unique high-action winter sports events at Sculpture Park October 7th and October 14th including live music, high definition film premieres, mind-blowing gear deals, and a one-of-a-kind rail jam which will play host to both snowboarders and skiers over 2-weekends. Snowboard on the Block returns to October 14th for the fifth year celebration in the Mile High City along with a new all skiing-related twin event aptly named First Chair Festival on October 7th.
