State of the Union 2020 Watch Party
February 4 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm MSTFree
President Donald Trump is scheduled to deliver the 2020 State of the Union address before Congress at 7 p.m. MST on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020. Join us at the historic Denver Press Club to watch the address. We’ll provide some light snacks with a cash bar, but feel free to order and bring in your own food. We’ll have the address going on the big screen upstairs while also broadcasting on televisions downstairs.
Although there are no plans so far to delay the address because of impeachment proceedings, should that occur, we will adjust accordingly.
About the Denver Press Club
The historic Denver Press Club is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to build engaged communities by supporting the pursuit of ethical journalism. It held its first organizational meeting in 1867 — nine years before Colorado became a state — making it the nation’s oldest press club. Since 1925, its headquarters has been at 1330 Glenarm Place, a building that in 2017 was added to the National Register of History Places. Its more than 450 members includes journalists, public relations professionals, communications experts, politicians and other supporters of press freedom and the First Amendment. We further our mission by nurturing the growth of aspiring journalists through our annual scholarship program, facilitating conversations about the issues of the day, providing professional development to journalists and students and helping the public understand the world around them.
Each year since 1994, the Club has held its annual Damon Runyon Award banquet — its largest fundraiser — to recognize a journalist who embodies the storytelling prowess of Damon Runyon, an early Club member and Colorado newspaper writer who went on to fame in New York and whose stories were eventually compiled into Guys & Dolls, the famed Broadway Musical. The Club also annually inducts a class of accomplished Colorado journalists into its Hall of Fame.
You can become a supporter of the Club regardless of whether you a member of the news media. To join our cause, sign up denverpressclub.org/membership.
