How To Navigate Your Weekend

We have quite a few events running all weekend long so stack activities as you please. Here is the perfect weekend:

The annual and most popular Boulder Creek Festival is returning this Friday. Music from a stellar lineup of local artists at multiple stages, all types of eats from street food favorites to food trucks, and local vendors filling up the Makers Market. This event is stacked full of activities you do not want to miss. Follow the Eventbrite link to RSVP and arrive early to ensure you find parking. If street fests are not your still, head to Larimer Records Cafe for a special Lofi night featuring Downtempo, Trip Hop, and Acid Jazz. This groovy atmosphere is one of our favorite ways to set the mood of the weekend.

Saturday holds space for a very special event to make a Denver appearance, the Denver Water Lantern Festival. Voted #1 Best Cultural Festival by USA TODAY! Water Lantern Festival is a floating lantern event that is all about connections. Magical nights in cities across the U.S. include food, games, activities, vendors, music and the beauty of thousands of lanterns adorned with letters of love, hope and dreams reflected upon the water. As the sun begins to set on the evening sky, the Water Lantern Festival begins to shine with the launch of the lanterns onto the water as we Light The Water together. Watch your unique lantern drift out into the water as it joins other lanterns carrying hope, love, happiness, healing, peace, and connection. It’s a night that you will never forget. Summer Sizzle is our second Saturday option. Featuring live music, a 90s costume contest and a free TUF Volleyball tournament that gives you all a chance to take down our TUF team on the court. Do not let the nonprofit status fool you...we do not play to lose! No cover, arrive early and party for a good cause.

Celebrate the dog days of summer and providing a little “hair of the dog” this Sunday at EastFax Tap. Spend the heat of the summer on the massive patio Sunday jammin to bluegrass.
