Denver Weekend Rundown: Oct. 3-5
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 October 3-5.
Great American Beer Festival Spanning 188,000 square feet of the Colorado Convention Center, this three-day event is all about sampling. Festivalgoers can enjoy one-ounce samples from breweries throughout the country. More than 46,000 beer enthusiasts are expected to attend, making it a prime people watching opportunity.
Fright Fest Things are about to get spooky at Elitch Gardens. Starting at 6 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays now through November 2, the place transforms from theme park to scream park, complete with a zombie apocalypse, a freak show, a terror chamber and a seance that brings a ghost story to life. Bonus: Guests are permitted to wear costumes, and those who do will be given a wristband at the front gate to distinguish them from staff. (Smart.)
Vanilla Ice Alright, stop, collaborate and listen: Ice is back…with a performance at Grizzly Rose. Relive the ’90s with the rap star turned home improvement guru (seriously) tonight at 10 p.m. Tickets for the show are $20 in advance and $25 the day of.
Farm Fest This day-long benefit event for The Urban Farm at Stapleton —which provides agricultural and environmental education for urban children, youth and their families— kicks off at 10 a.m. Barbecue, beer, drinks and snacks are all on the menu. Highlights include an Old West show, a pumpkin patch, games and rides and free workshops and demonstrations. Admission is just $1. Activity and food tickets are $1 each or you can pay $20 for 25 tickets.
Hot Chocolate 15K/5K Chocolate lovers, this race is for you. After runners cross the finish line at Civic Center Park, they are rewarded with chocolate fondue! Runners who complete the 15K also get a medal. The 5K starts bright and early at 7 a.m. and the 15K starts 50 minutes later. Register HERE.
