Durango Grit Gatherings in Downtown
4:00pm / 9th and 10th Street
9th and 10th Streets from Main to Narrow Gauge will be blocked off to traffic and parking to create an area for people to safely gather in Downtown. Tables, chairs, heaters and lighting will be brought in to create a space to enjoy take out from a local restaurant and listen to live entertainment. QR codes will be at every table that link you to Downtown restaurants to place your order. Pick up your food and then enjoy a meal in Downtown! BID also encourages you to also stroll around Downtown to do some shopping, and will have lists at the tables with information on stores that are open and any specials they might be offering.   Masks are required when you are in Downtown, and are thus required in the Durango Grit Gathering spaces, except when you are actively eating. Tables will be socially distanced and a limited number of people are allowed inside the areas at one time to help ensure everyone's safety. Please bring your mask and listen to the volunteers that are working the entrances.   BID thanks the City of Durango and our friends at Local First for making this happen! We hope to see you in Downtown this Friday, or any of the next three Fridays!
