Saturday

ARTCRANK Denver This show, which takes place at TAXI in the River North Arts District, features handmade, bike-inspired posters created by Denver and Boulder artists. It’s the fifth ARTCRANK held in the Mile High City, and includes works from show veterans as well as new talents.

Dave Matthews Band It’s hard to believe the Dave Matthews Band played Red Rocks for the first time 20 years ago. This time around they’re playing a two-day gig at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

Sunday

Denver Poets Day This free event at Skyline Park will feature educational  booths, an open mic, music, slam-poetry, and storytelling with Ed Ward. Denver Poets Day launched in 1976 as a tribute to Neal Cassady, who inspired the Dean Moriarty character in Jack Kerouac’s novel “On The Road.”

2013 USA Pro Challenge This annual multi-day professional road cycling stage race first took place in Colorado in 2011. It is distinguished by incredibly high altitudes and Colorado Rocky Mountain scenery. Check out today’s Denver finish, which includes a circuit course that takes riders in multiple loops through the city.
