Visiting the Denver Metro Area

Enjoying sun-filled days and cool, comfortable evenings all summer long, the people of Denver and surrounding communities like Aurora, Boulder, and Castle Rock head outdoors to enjoy an array activities. Big-league sports, family-friendly festivals, cultural events, and more – this summer, the Denver Metro Area has it all.

The weather’s right for a day at Coors Field enjoying America’s Pastime with the Colorado Rockies. Key home-field matchups this season include a four-game series against the San Francisco Giants, September 3rd through 6th. Check the schedule during your Mile-High City visit to catch Major League Baseball action.

Just southeast of downtown Denver, the Cherry Creek North Business Improvement District is the place to be to experience some of the best culinary, visual, and performing arts in the region, July 3rd through 5th. The 2015 Cherry Creek Arts Festival promises all that and more and, best of all, the three-day event is free.

For a something a little different, check out the 2015 Colorado Dragon Boat Festival on July 18th and 19th. In addition to two days of exciting dragon boat races, the festivities at Sloan’s Lake Park will showcase live entertainment, the creations of local arts and crafts makers, and there will be plenty of food and drink options.

The Denver area is home to some of the world’s most famous breweries, and there are several ways to celebrate the suds this summer. The 2015 Summer Brew Fest is July 24th and 25th, bringing craft beers, local food offerings, and live music to Mile High Station. Then, September 18th through 26th, the 2015 Denver Beer Fest is made up of countless events at bars and breweries all throughout town. In the mean time, head west to Golden and take a tour of the Coors Brewery – the biggest brewery in the world.

Lakewood visitors enjoy especially easy access to one of Golden’s biggest annual events. The Denver suburb's historic downtown area hosts the 2015 Golden Fine Arts Festival on August 16th and 17th, featuring the works of over 140 artists. Browse paintings, ceramic arts, jewelry, sculptures, and more – the free event begins at 10 a.m. both days.

Foodies flock to Englewood, just south of Denver between Lakewood and Greenwood Village, for the 2015 Colorado ChileFest on September 12th and 13th. It’s free, multi-cultural fun for all ages, with live entertainment, salsa and chili cook-offs, and more held at Centennial Park.
