“Women Who Play With Dolls” Art Opening and Sale

Commonwheel Artists Gallery Opening Reception on Friday, June 15, from 5 – 8 pm Featuring the art of Caron O’Neil, Belinda Chambers and Kathy Brega PART OF 3rd FRIDAY IN MANITOU SPRINGS June 15 – July 16 Dolls serve many purposes: they teach, befriend, comfort, and share. Dolls have been a part of society forever. They are a way to bond with other people, act out real life situations, and just to have fun! Dolls come in many different forms and media, breaking the language barrier and bringing people to the same level. Sometimes playing with dolls as an adult creates more joy now than ever as a child. Since many of the dolls are crafted out of found objects, organic and plastic, old discarded materials are made to smile again. Other dolls have been turned from children’s dolls into adult dolls with a slightly twisted, yet fun sense of humor that will surely make you laugh and want to play with them. The otherness of these dolls will surely inspire flights of imaginative play.

Rocky Mountain Inventors Association - Pikes Peak

Speaker: Nathan Fisk Topic: The Transition From Product to Company A normal inventor-centric quandary is transitioning from creating a product to creating a company. Whether you are creating a company around one product or whether you need a platform to organize and build a series of ongoing products that you sell and license to others, the fact remains that 50% of businesses fail within the first five years. Many of those failures are tied directly to the fact that some of the best inventors in the world are not always good entrepreneurs and business people. From financial considerations to staff, and from revenue generation to controlling expenses, creating a solid foundation will enable you to do what you do best and be profitable, even if you're not an entrepreneur. Nathan has been a consultant and business partner in multiple ventures over the last 15 years and is currently the Chief Growth Officer for Saligent, Inc., a local start-up that has more than tripled in size over the last 12 months. One of Nathan's previous clients started off with zero in sales and a product that wasn't ready for market to a multi-million dollar venture that doubled sales every year for more than five years while introducing new products to the market every year.

Donkey Derby Days

Now in its 81st year, Donkey Derby Days tops the list of favorite Cripple Creek events. People from all over the world descend on downtown, drawn by a chance to watch a race inspired by the town’s resident donkey herd, believed to be distant relatives of the original donkeys from the town’s Gold Rush days. Enjoy games, live entertainment, heritage competitions and other fun family activities that will make your visit one to remember! The origins of this popular Colorado donkey festival date back to the 1930s, when local businessman Charley Lehew thought a Cripple Creek festival would attract people in the summer months. It wasn’t long before he and two business partners settled on donkey racing. Together, they built a race track, solicited advertising and arranged concessions and entertainment in time for the first-ever Donkey Derby Days festival. Today, this two-day jamboree is one of the most popular of all the Cripple Creek events held throughout the year, and admission to this exciting Cripple Creek festival is 100% FREE! The donkey races aren’t the only things going on this weekend, however. Visit our street vendors, enjoy our live entertainment and participate in a host of other family activities such as our heritage competitions or our activities for the children - guaranteed to make this weekend the best Donkey Derby Days ever. Don't forget Fido - we have a dog show where your best friend can compete for prizes! And of course, you just can't miss our traditional hearty Steak Dinner. Sponsored by the Wildwood Casino, the steak dinner will be served on Saturday night in the Wildwood Casino's outdoor parking lot. Grab a steak off the grill, enjoy live entertainment, and get fueled for an evening of fun!
