Friday

A Taste of Colorado Treat your taste buds to appetizers, entrees and desserts from more than 50 of Colorado’s favorite food establishments. Samples and full-sized portions available! Highlights of this 4-day fest include a karaoke stage, a fireworks display paired with a synchronized light show on the City and County Building, and a marketplace featuring more than 250 vendors selling arts and crafts, home and gift items, jewelry, furniture and more. If you want to practice your karaoke skills I recommend you to get the Best Karaoke Machine there is.

Film on the Side: The Wizard of Oz See this classic movie projected on the side of the Denver Central Library (near the west entrance). Showtime starts at dusk. Seating will be provided, but movie-goers are welcome to bring their own cushions and blankets. In the event of inclement weather, the showing will be rescheduled.

Saturday

You Look How I Used To This group show exploring the shifting mode of self-definition debuts at Dateline this evening. It features five new works by Molly Bounds, Grady Gordon, Caleb Hahne and Mario Zoots, as well as collaborative pieces, in the form of collages, paintings and prints. The show runs through Sept. 21, but will only be on view by appointment after tonight. 

Sunday

Colorado State Fair This is your next-to-last chance to stop by the fair, now in its 142nd year! Today’s free attractions include performances by Native American dancers, a show by magician Ole Doc EZee, and a show by “America’s Got Talent” winners, the Olate Dogs. Tickets to the fair —held in Pueblo at 1001 Beulah Ave.— are $10 for those 13 years old and older, and $7 for kids five to 12 years old. Kids 4 and under get in free.

BMW Championship The top 70 golf players in the world come to Cherry Hills Country Club today to compete in the penultimate event in the PGA Tour’s FedExCup Playoffs, which is being held in the Rocky Mountain State for the first time. The top 30 on the points list will go on to compete for the Tour Championship and the FedExCup the following week.
