Unity BBQ

  • 4890 Argonne St Denver, CO, 80249 United States (map)

On August 9th, 2015, the Green Valley Ranch CAB, Montbello Barbershop, LLC andShop Talk Live will partner to host the third annual Unity Celebration on the grounds of the Green Valley Ranch Rec Center from 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM. The purpose of the Unity Celebration is to take one day out the year to have fun, connect to our neighbors and local businesses, enjoy a free meal and celebrate our communities. Local businesses are encouraged to use this event to demo new products, sale products and services and say thank you to all the customers who have supported you throughout the year.


This event started in 2013. Montbello Barbers and Shop Talk Live sponsored a picnic that feed over 300 people for free. That event was hosted on the school grounds of Montbello High School. “While enjoying the day someone said, we should do this with Green Valley Ranch.”

In 2014 Shop Talk Live and Montbello Barbers partnered with the Green Valley Ranch CAB to host the event and witnessed the event grow more than 200%. See the highlights below.
