Denver Weekend Rundown: Dec. 13-15

Looking for things to do in Denver this weekend? The RedPeak staff has your back. Here’s a list of our top picks for December 13-15. 


Hammond’s Candies Candy Cane Festival This 13th annual festival has lots of activities for the whole family: cookie decorating, carnival games, face painting, trolley rides, and a tour of the Hammond’s Candies factory. Plus, Santa Claus will be on hand for photos. (And in our opinion, no one’s too old for a pic with St. Nick.)

MATTER’s 14th Annual Print Sale and Party For more than a dozen years, this print and web-based graphic design firm has sold new prints, paintings and books, as well as works in its back catalog, to friends, family and the public during the holiday season. Type lovers, in particular, will appreciate the event’s letterpress and laser demos.


#FirstWorldSanta Denver’s Dangerous Theatre presents this original holiday comedy about how Santa hates his life. Being St. Nick just ain’t what it used to be. The elves have unionized, PETA is on him about the reindeer, and he’s been diagnosed with Celiac Disease. (Which means no more Christmas cookies.) Warning: Show contains adult language and situations, as well as bad dance sequences. 

12 Bars of Denver What’s better than a pub crawl that benefits not one, but four local charities?! For five hours starting at 8 p.m., a shuttle loops around the registration hub (The Viewhouse) and the 11 other participating bars. You choose which bars to attend and who you want to crawl with. Teams can include as many people as you want. Seven dollars from each ticket sale is donated directly to one of the charities, and each attendee gets a shuttle pass and official 12 Bars of Denver swag: a sweatshirt and a mug.


Paws & Claus Attention dog moms and dads: Santa will be stopping by Dog Savvy’s patio to take free pictures with pups. Think your dog is pawsitively adorable? (Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves.) Then enter the Paws & Claus photo contest onLarimer Square’s Facebook page for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to Dog Savvy!
