Looking for things to do in Denver this weekend? The RedPeak staff has your back. Here’s a list of our top event picks for January 24-26!

Friday

The Big Read Kickoff Party Festivities at McNichols Civic Center Building will kick off this National Endowment for the Arts program, which encourages people to read for pleasure and enlightenment. Guests will have the chance to hear a dramatic reading, sign up for book discussions and writing workshops, and view the art in the building. 

Saturday

Winter Park Carnival This two-day event has something for just about everybody: live music, a snow sculpture contest, a silent auction, fireworks, and a parade. Plus, there’s a new event– the Stagecoach Classic, a 30km/15km cross country ski race and tour from Devil’s Thumb Ranch through the old Idlewild Ski Area to Hideaway Park in Winter Park. 

Alex Metric. Destructo Electronic music fans, head to Beta tonight. British DJ Alex Metric and DJ Gary Richards aka Destructo (they guy responsible for responsible for events like RaveAmerica at Knotts Berry Farm and HARD Red Rocks) are teaming up for a one-night show with special guest Kal Halax. Tickets are just $12! Buy them here

Sunday

Icebreaker 5 See the work of 41 artists (31 of whom are from Colorado) under one roof. The show –which has no specific theme or medium– is on view at Ice Cube Gallery through February 2, but today at 11 a.m. you can attend a talk with its juror, Dean Sobel, a 20th century art specialist and director of the Clyfford Still Museum.

Evita If you loved the movie (and even if you didn’t), check out this Tony award-winning musical at The Buell Theatre– but stifle the urge to sing along to “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, okay? It’s the show’s final performance of its 11-day run, so don’t miss it.
