Catfish on August 20th, for a “Weird” Reason.

Greetings, Fellow Catfish Enthusiasts,

We at 2016 Denver Catfish Festival Headquarters are getting as excited as ducks upon junebugs about the upcoming marriage of Cornmeal and Catfish, and are sure that you, the esteemed Festivalgoers, are giddy as well!

This will be the latest DCF in our storied history; the original date was to be August 6th, but forces beyond our control intervened and pushed us out a couple of weeks.

Back in March, your Dear Chairman’s youngest princess made a request.

“Dear Chairman, if my all-time favorite performer ever graces a stage in the Denver area, will you accompany me?”

“Of course, my little tadpole.  Anything for you.”

Imagine my surprise when, several months later and after we’d decided on August 6th for our date, an announcement was made that would change the trajectory of the 2016 Denver Catfish Festival:

I received an alert that my girl’s Sinatra, her John, Paul, George, and Ringo, her Leif Garret and Shaun Cassidy and Backstreet Gentlemen all rolled into one, would be performing in Littleton on August 6th.

I checked once, checked twice, and yes, it was in fact true, one of the greatest musicians of our time, “Weird” Al Yankovic, was performing on the original date of the Denver Catfish Festival.

There are few things more important to the Chairman of The Denver Catfish Festival than The Denver Catfish Festival, but this schedule snafu was one of those things.  True to my word, the whole Chairman family will be taking in the Weird Al show, postponing the Denver Catfish Festival.

So, there you have it.  We’re set for Saturday, August 20th, when the first filet will hit oil at 1:12 PM MDT.  

Note: An excellent way to work through the emotional stress caused by rescheduled events is to voice one’s tender emotional condition through Haiku.  And remember, Fabulous Prizes await those who answer the call and write a winning Catfish-inspired verse!
