Results of the Astor House Beer Museum Study

The Jefferson County Fair starts today at the Fairgrounds (map). The 4H horse shows will be going from 8:30-5. This evening, they’ll be celebrating “Jeffco Homecoming.” You’re encouraged to dress for your favorite era–zoot suits, poodle skirts, neon, grunge… The Opening Ceremonies will start on the main stage at 5:30. Afterwards, they’ll have a magician, a science show, a reptile adventure show, and an eighties tribute band. They’ll also have mutton bustin’, pony rides, a petting farm, an outdoor adventure zone, and much more! The Fair runs through Sunday.

Head to City Hall at 5:30 to help City Council & staff celebrate Golden’s commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement. They’ll have ice cream!

The City Council meeting will start at 6:30. After the business meeting, they’ll have a study session. The History Museum has submitted the results of the study about whether to turn the Astor House into a beer museum. The study concluded that a beer museum would be a big attraction, but the Astor House is too small to house it. City staff does not think the Astor House should be re-opened as a museum–in fact, it can’t be, since the contents of the Astor House Museum have been sold.  So for the present, the future of the Astor House is unknown.  For more information, refer to the meeting packet.
