Special events, concert and festival schedules, seasonal activities and more for the Denver Metro area and across the State of Colorado!

 

Colorado is a breathtakingly and uniquely beautiful state. The mountains, crystal waters, snow, forests, and plant life is nature's masterpiece.

But, when you add the colors, music, fun, and adventures that are added during the spring and summer festival season, It takes beauty to a heavenly (or should we say Mile-High) level. 

Here are a few favorite festivals from our friends at ZocDoc and Denver.org...who want you to have a great time AND stay healthy in Colorado this Summer!

DÍA DEL NIÑO

Translated as “Day of the child” this is a free weekend-long festival, beginning April 29th at Denver Art Museum. Entry is free, and there are tons of activities, artmaking projects, and entertainment for the entire family. The activities will include…

GO GREEN AT COLORADO EARTH DAY CELEBRATIONS

Saturday. Get a head start on Earth Day, Sunday, April 22, with a celebration only Colorado can throw. From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the State Capitol, 200 E. Colfax Ave., celebrate the planet with yoga, live music and more. The family-friendly event will kick off with a good stretch and a little centering (that means yoga), an opening ceremony and featured speakers from athletes to politicians. Music will played throughout the day by The Broadcast, Meadow Mountain and Other Black because what better way is there to honor Mother Earth than with a little booty shaking? There’s also a beer garden (because it IS Colorado), and a special kids’ zone to tire out the little ones before heading home. This event is hosted…

Let's go for a bike ride!

The weather in Denver is about as bike-friendly as it can get it, and luckily we have several bike-share programs that can help you grab a bike to ride as you traverse the city.

Let’s survey the options.

Denver B-Cycle

An oldie but goodie for bike sharing, especially in the downtown area, is the Denver B-Cycle program.

To utilize this ride-share program, stop by one of the dock stations, pay for a bike rental via credit card, and then return it to another B-Cycle dock station when you’re finished.

FOR YOU: Try Denver's B-Cycle for less than $5 this month

This bike is going to cost you $9 for the first 30 minutes and then $5 for every half hour afterwards.

B-Cycle is a nonprofit program subsidized by the…

April

4/20 Eve On The Rocks (311 and Method Man & Redman with Collie Buddz, PROF, Long Beach Dub Allstars, Chali 2na); hip-hop. April 19. $55-$150.

Opiuo and Sunsquabi with Flamingosis and Anomalie; EDM. April 21. $30-$75.

Vulfpeck with Kamasi Washington and Knower; funk and jazz. April 27. $45-$75. Vulfpeck returns to Red Rocks for its first headlining show after opening for Trey Anastasio Band there last year and for The Motet in 2016. The band has earned it: Its mix of self-aware goofs and virtuosic funking around will put a smile on your face and, if you’re anything like the band, a weird costume on your body. The sweetener here is Kamasi Washington, who’s quietly become the leader of a new generation of political and hard-to-parse jazz…

As Denver’s size and cost of living continue to grow, free days at area cultural institutions have become more important for budget-strapped residents, especially parents.

And, as with recent years, the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District — the seven-county metro area’s tax district that funds hundreds of arts and culture nonprofits — offers a handy interactive calendar at scfd.org that lists the free days by month.

But we figured we’d save you some clicking and tapping with this curated list of the most notable free days of 2018 from The Know at the Denver Post.
