FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What is Totally Tennyson?
Totally Tennyson started out as an '80s-themed pub crawl style street party celebrating all things '80s. After four years, we decided to broaden our horizons and incorporate the decades of the 1970s and 1990s. There will be hubs of activity all along the street where Crocket and Tubbs can enjoy food, drink, and music supplied by the generous Tennyson Street businesses while rubbing elbows with Richard Simmons and Madonna. A cash costume contest and an evening performance by the Ultimate '80s Experience, 6 Million Dollar Band culminates at the Oriental Theater.

This event takes place at businesses along the Tennyson Street corridor between W 35th Ave and W 46th Ave, from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 25th, 2015.

All schools were sent an informational letter inviting them to be a part of Totally Tennyson.

A portion (75%) of ticket proceeds with NONE selected for school affiliation go to our non-profit partner Invest Together and our participating schools are eligible to write grants for those funds. If you are not affiliated with a school, pick one! The school with the lowest cumulative sales to date, will be listed at the top of the list. Go ahead and pay it forward and pick them and give them your direct donation.
