Oat­meal Fes­ti­val cel­e­brates 20 years

The Denver Post - - LIFE & CULTURE -

Oats aren’t ex­actly the most show­stop­ping in­gre­di­ent around, but this week­end Lafayette shows how to build a com­mu­nity event around them with the 20th an­nual Lafayette Quaker Oat­meal Fes­ti­val. The fest is, un­sur­pris­ingly, shot through health themes, in­clud­ing the Step Up to Well­ness health fair and the Quicker Quaker 5K Walk/Run. A free shut­tle runs from Flatirons Com­mu­nity Church to Pioneer El­e­men­tary, where the fest kicks off Jan. 9 with 200 gal­lons of oat­meal, 4,000 oat­maeal pan­cakes and 1,200 muffins. Adults $8, kids 3-12 and se­niors $6, kids un­der 2 are free. Call 303-666-9555 or visit lafayet­te­col­orado.com.
