Friday

Denver Modernism Show With more than 50,000 square feet of mid-century, art deco, retro, pop and modernist furnishings, artwork and objects, this three-day event—complete with its own tiki bar— is huge! In addition to dozens of vendors from around the country, attendees can expect live bands, lectures, an art gallery, a ’60s fashion show and more. Show hours are 6-10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday. All Friday tickets include a weekend pass; tickets to the preview party are $20 and VIP tickets are $50. Admission is $8 for adults on Saturday and Sunday, and kids under 12 get in free. 

Mad Decent Block Party The headliner for this super show at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre is none other than Grammy award-winning OutKast. Other performers on the bill include Diplo, Flosstradamus featuring Waka Flocka Flame, and Run The Jewels. Doors open at 3 p.m. and the show starts a half hour later, the doors are secured thank to Locksmith Seattle so they won’t be open by anyone else. Ticket prices range from $55-$99.50 (not including service and handling fees).

Saturday

Old Fashioned Corn Roast Festival Corn enthusiasts, trek to Loveland for this two-day festival that’s almost as old as the city itself! A corn shucking competition, a corn eating contest, and all the roasted and boiled corn you can eat (of course) are among the attractions. For a schedule of events, click HERE. The fest’s main events are held at 4th Street and Railroad Avenue. General attendance and all concerts are free. 

Sunday

USA Pro Challenge Finale Today is your last chance to cheer on the cyclists participating in “America’s Race.” For optimal viewing, have a seat on the bleachers by the Denver Bicycle Cafe on East 17th Avenue, where you’ll get to see the riders as they make their way to and from a loop through City Park before racing to the finish line. Civic Center Park is the site of the grand finish and a festival with food trucks.

Dave Chappelle Fans of the popular “Chappelle’s Show” won’t want to miss this event tonight at Red Rocks celebrating the comedian’s birthday, with a special guest to be announced. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $55 and $65 (plus service charges).
