About this Event
The Ambassador of Americana Returns to Denver!
With his unbridled enthusiasm and eagle eye for oddball detail, Charles shares the stories and glories of his escapades and adventures in search of local landmarks, roadside wonders, regional foods, classic cars, retro futurism, unsung attractions, undiscovered treasures and time warps. Be prepared for your mid-century lovin’ spirit to soar like never before.
Mid-century pop culture expert Charles Phoenix is a performer, author, explorer and collector celebrating classic and kitschy American life and style. He is known for his spirited live “slide show” performances, classic car JOYRIDE videos, colorful coffee table books, “Test kitchen” creations and fun “field trip” tours. The New York Times says: “Call him the King of Retro.”
