No summer is complete without going to a few outdoor concert series events. There’s just something about sitting outside with friends and family while listening to good music that really gets you into the summertime mood. Fortunately for us, there are tons of FREE, fun, and family-friendly concert series in the Denver area every summer, most of which are starting this upcoming weekend! So if you haven’t already made plans as to what concert you will be attending first this summer, here’s a breakdown of the best upcoming events for Denver.
Mark your calendar for July 3rd, because you will not want to miss out on the Independence Eve Free Concert Event in Civic Center Park! This concert event is Denver’s most highly anticipated annual happening that promises to be fun for the whole family. Brought to you by Anadarko, this sensory overload event will feature live music from the Colorado Symphony, as well as an amazing light show. To top it off, the event ends with one of the most spectacular fireworks displays in the state. People come from all over the Front Range for this event, so be sure to get there super early! www.civiccenterconservancy.org
The Coors Light South Platte River Festival will be held at confluence Park on June 23rd to June 24th. This jam packed two day event is one of the newest summer concert series to come to Denver. Brought to you by REI and Coors Light, there will be free live music from both local and national bands, free paddle board lessons, and a Colorado original, Coors beer garden. www.southplatteriverfest.com
Jazz in the Park will be hosted in the Pavilion at Denver’s City Park running every Sunday starting June 2nd. This classic Denver summer event is always fun and features some of Colorado’s best jazz musicians including Hazel Miller, The Kenny Walker Sextet and Henry Butler. A little bit more low key than some of the other above mention events, this regularly occurring concert is the perfect way unwind after a busy weekend or the perfect place to bring a date! www.cityparkjazz.org
The Louisville Street Faire is another regular summer concert that happens every Friday from June 14th to to August 16th. This event features some the hottest old school bands like Firefall and The Samples. The restaurants around town enjoy a huge rush of people and then the party moves to the pavilion where everyone is packed into their lawn chairs with beers in hand. A great family atmosphere, the Louisville Street Faire is definitely one worth making the journey out of Denver for! http://www.downtownlouisvilleco.com/street-faire/
