Friday

Denver County Fair Though this event is just three years old, it honors many of the fine traditions of America’s county fairs. With 16 interlocking indoor pavilions featuring their own exhibitors, vendors, makers, stage demonstrations, entertainment and open competitions, there’s something for just about everyone. The fair is being held at National Western Complex from noon-9 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Sunday.

Internet Cat Video Festival This 75-minute film was curated, compiled and edited by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, which hosted an Internet Cat Video Festival last year. The flick is a romp through some of the finest online cat videos around. Watch it at Sie Film Center at either 7:30 p.m. Friday or 2 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Saturday

Sesh Fest Dozens of breweries will be paying homage to the session beer during this fest at Sculpture Park from 3-7 p.m. The fest’s organizers define session beers as any beer under 5% ABV with a balance of flavor between hops and malt and a clean, crisp finish. Essentially, session beers allow drinkers to have multiple brews without being overwhelmed by the effects of alcohol. To see a list of the breweries participating in Sesh Fest, click HERE.

Colorado Brazil Fest To experience some of Colorado’s finest Brazilian music, dance performers and teachers, and Brazilian food vendors, get to this fest, which spans several local theaters and entertainment venues around Boulder. The event specifically showcases samba, choro, forro, and Afro-Brazilian styles of music and dance. A complete schedule for the event, can be found HERE.

Sunday

Vans Warped Tour The Denver leg of this tour takes place at Sports Authority Field at Mile High and has performances by more than 90 bands, including Air Dubai, Falling In Reverse, Of Mice and Men, and The Ghost Inside. Once a skate-punk fest, this 20-year-old tour now features artists from a variety of genres. Doors open at 11 a.m. To buy your ticket online, click HERE.
