Poet Laureate for the State of Colorado joins this year’s Five Points Jazz Festival 2020 on Saturday, May 16!

Bobby LeFebre is an award-winning writer, performer, and cultural worker from Denver, Colorado. He is a two-time Grand Slam Champion, a National Poetry Slam Finalist, an Individual World Poetry Slam Finalist, and a two-time TEDx speaker.  LeFebre has performed at hundreds of cultural events, social actions, detention centers, conferences, and colleges and universities across the United States and abroad.

Many of us know LeFebre for his play Northside! Su Teatro’s Executive Director, Anthony Garcia, says “I think Bobby has only scratched the surface of what he’s capable of doing.”

Denver Arts & Venues presents a partnership with Rocky Mountain Public Media (Rocky Mountain PBS, KUVO JAZZ and THE DROP) to present the five Points Jazz festival virtually this year! Tune in to Rocky Mountain PBS at 6pm, KUVO JAZZ at 8pm, and on all of our digital platforms – in its place of the annual day-long event in Denver’s historic five Points neighborhood. Let’s party together … in the comfort of our homes.
