Passport to Wheat Ridge cover

Plans for the 2019 City of Wheat RIdge 50th Anniversary are underway. Stay tuned to our Facebook Group @Celebrate WR 50 and the website to learn more, and if you want to get involved in the planning contact Laura McAvoy at Lmcavoy@ci.wheatridge.co.us or 303-235-2819

The first exciting project for 2019 is the Passport to Wheat Ridge. This is your very own passport to dozens of Wheat Ridge businesses and events! This passport includes discount offers and coupons from businesses across the City, along with information about signature special events that build relationships within our community.

The 2019 Passport to Wheat Ridge is a limited edition tour around the City, as there will only be 500 printed and they will only be available for the 2019 year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the City of Wheat Ridge. 

The proceeds from the 2019 Passport to Wheat Ridge are funding the restoration of the Wheat Ridge Police Department’s first patrol car, Unit 1, and will support other programs hosted by WRPD such as Operation Blue Santa, National Night Out and the Child Safety Fair. Unit 1 will be making appearances at events throughout 2019 once the restoration is complete.

To order your Passport at a special discount, attend the 2018 Holiday Celebration (December 1) or stop by City Hall.  Preordered Passports to Wheat Ridge are $20.00 and will be available for pick up on Monday, Dec. 17, 2018. Beginning Jan. 1, 2019, the Passport to Wheat Ridge will be $25.00 and available for purchase online or at City Hall.
