Friday

I Can Do It! Spring is practically synonymous with renewal. So what better time to catch a three-day conference at the Colorado Convention Center featuring more than 40 authors who will share their tips for improving your mind, body and spirit? In addition to seminars and workshops, this event will have an on-site bookstore offering specially priced books, audio programs and gifts by the I Can Do It! speakers. 

Saturday

Collaboration Festival Imbibe and the Colorado Brewers Guild have teamed up to host the inaugural Collaboration Festival– the Colorado Craft Beer Week headline event. Slated for 3-7 p.m. at the Curtis Hotel, the fest will showcase the release of 35 collaboration beers. Each beer was created by at least one Colorado Brewers Guild member, with other participating breweries in and out of state. Some collaborations involve more than five breweries!

A Bite of the Rockies This two-day indoor food festival will take place at the Denver Mart in the Pavilion Building. What makes this event unique is its focus on locally owned and operated establishments. More than 40 restaurants will be serving up a variety of dishes, from ethnic specialties to classic festival fare. Foodies who prefer a high-end dining experience should be sure to check out the Food Snob Strip.

Lorde You’d have to be living under a rock not to have heard this Grammy award winning artist’s hit song “Royals.” And if you’re a fan, you’re in luck. Lorde is playing at the Fillmore Auditorium tonight starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are still available! Buy one HERE.

Sunday

Rebranded: Polish Film Posters for the American Western This one-of-a-kind exhibit –on display at the Denver Art Museum through June 1– shows how iconic Westerns “Shane,” “The Misfits,” “Tom Horn,” and “Oklahoma!” were reinterpreted by Polish artists. The featured movie posters were created during Poland’s communist era, when Westerns exported an epic vision of America. Instead of employing overtly glamorous, Hollywood-style imagery, the artists used universally recognized symbols of the American West—horses, six-shooters, cowboys, Stetsons—to express their opinions on violence as a negative force.
