Denver Events

Whether it's 16th St. Mall, the Ballpark neighborhood or the Plaza at Union Station, Denver's downtown is brimming with events. Our monthly downtown Denver newsletter is designed to inform Mile High City employees and families about the awesome events we host in our own front yard in Civic Center Park, Skyline Park and across Downtown. And we'll have some fun info on commercial film production in Denver too!

Rockies baseball fans and lovers of a good Denver party alike will crowd the streets of LoDo on April 6, 2018 for the kick-off to the 2018 baseball season here in Denver!

April 6, marks the first home game for the Rockies at Coors Field, and a wonderful excuse to join a few thousand of your friends in the LoDo neighborhood to celebrate our home team.

The game will begin at 2:10 PM. Blake Street will be closed from 20th to 22nd, large crowds and increased traffic are anticipated, so please plan accordingly. Tickets to the game and additional details can be found here

Denver's New Music Festival Has a Name and a Killer Line Up!!!

Grandoozy Hits Denver this Fall!

After much anticipation, the major music
festival coming to Denver's Overland neighborhood September 14-16, 2018 announced their name! And it's a real DOOZY. 

The festival, produced by the creators of Outside Lands and Bonaroo, to name a few, will be called Gandoozy. While we aren't entirely sure what this crazy name means, we are excited that Denver will be home to this exciting new event. 

Details, including the music lineup, ticket information and more can be found here.

That's s Wrap...Top Chef Season 15 Comes to a Close

Thank you Top Chef for visiting Denver and congratulations to the season winner (we can't tell you who it was, you have to catch the reruns!)
