The flannel extravaganza is a must-see event, featuring live local music acts, an art show, flavor-filled food trucks, a beer garden sponsored by New Belgium Brewing Co., lawn games, a photo booth, the New Year piñata drop, and midnight toast.
This year, Flannel Ball keeps alive the local artist tradition of adaptive reuse. Strings of lights illuminate an art-activated street nestled among historic houses, new structures, public art spaces, creative studios, bars and boutiques. Chain link fences transform into art gallery walls. Backyards are reimagined as live music venues. Dirt lots are reinvented as community gardens complete with urban chicken coops.
