Summer is finally kicking off, and so are many events in the Boulder and Denver area. We’re in the season of weekend festivals, summer concerts, and farmers’ markets, so get out and enjoy the weather. Well, maybe after the rain stops. S
Start your weekend bright and early with the Boulder Farmers’ Market where you can browse a selection of locally grown, organic, fruits, vegetables, flowers, plants, cheeses and wines in addition to tasting samples from local eateries. It’s a great way to support the local economy.
Come down to the Boulder Airport for a World War II Era 1940s Ball, for a USO style show with Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Charlie Chaplin, Walt Disney and more. Attendees can enjoy dancing to traditional big bands amongst WWII planes, impersonators, and Vegas-style roulette.
Or go to the opening weekend of the Colorado Renaissance Festival in Larkspur. Dress up (or not) and walk around the village, tasting food, and watching performances by jousters and jugglers.
The 3rd Annual Erie Brewfest is taking place this weekend in Historic Downtown Erie on Briggs Street. Attendees can sample beer and food from over 25 Colorado breweries and food trucks, and a live performance by the SoHo Band.
