DENVER — Sunday night’s watch party at Tivoli Quad for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final has been canceled.
The Auraria Higher Education Center (AHEC) cites a number of factors in its decision to cancel the event in a release, including the Pride celebration, protests over the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and expected addition weather.
Friday night, Colorado Avalanche fans knocked down the fencing to access Tivoli Quad during the Game 5 watch party there, causing the event to go over capacity.

But AHEC said there were no “concerning incidents” at the event, and that everyone left the quad in a “safe and orderly fashion.”
The watch party at Ball Arena will be expanded. The entire arena will be open for the event, rather than just the first two levels. You can find more information here.
