Party Tent Hours: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Please note the new location of the Blues Alumni Tent at Edele Mertz Hardware 1822 South Broadway (see map) for this Saturday's February 18 Bud Light Grand Parade.

The new location is on the east side of the Parade route and one block off the route. We have setup a Blues Alumni Tent Grand Parade Viewing Area on the route at Geyer and Seventh only 340 feet from the Blues Alumni Tent.The Parade Viewing Area will feature an open bar and front row viewing of the Grand Parade.

We will be showing the 1:00 p.m. Blues v. Avalanche game on a 7' tall x 12' wide screen in the Blues Alumni Tent and the always popular NSFW Story Time with the Alumni will take place at approximately 12:30 p.m. right before the game. As always we highly recommend you arrive before 9:00 a.m. when streets and access to the area begin to close. The tent opens at 9:00 a.m.

We do not have parking available, and recommend you use ride share or take a taxi as your mode of transportation to the Blues Alumni Tent (1822 South Broadway).

Tent Admission: $145
