Not sure I like working so hard to read it and while the color helps the design, it doesn't further the meaning - however the layout and the photo keep me coming back to it.

For the larger, one-day events, (basically happening monthly) I like the idea of having a similar event flier design with slightly different features based on the neighborhood, time of year, etc. http://isaurefouquet.com/
Really enjoy the use of the geometric shape, text and photo. very simple and very bold
Interesting placement of graphics over photo. Strange but it works!
