Denver Summer Festivals

From Memorial Day in May until Labor Day in September, the weekends are filled with arts, entertainment, food and more — all with a distinctly Denver twist.

AUGUST & SEPTEMBER

Riot Fest & Rodeo

WHEN: Sept. 2-4, 2016
WHERE: National Western Complex

The eclectic Riot Fest & Rodeo brings an amazing weekend full of live music to Denver. Last year's venue move to the National Western Complex inspired some new features to the event, such as a rodeo theme and BBQ cook-off. It's the perfect way to say goodbye to the summer concert season in The Mile High City.

A Taste of Colorado

WHEN: Sept. 2-5, 2016 
WHERE: Civic Center Park

A Taste of Colorado stands proud as the end-of-summer celebration of community pride and spirit in the Denver region. Over 500,000 people make the four-day festival their Labor Day Weekend celebration, enjoying the offerings of more 50 area restaurants, 275 marketplace artisans and vendors, six stages and educational programs promoting the diverse cultural and Western heritage of the region.

Denver Food + Wine Festival 

WHEN: Sept. 6-11, 2016
WHERE: Downtown Denver

The Denver Food + Wine Festival is a multi-day extravaganza of food, wine and spirits education, promotion and tastings. Through a series of events, the festival aims to highlight industry impact, promote workforce development and celebrate Denver as a culinary destination.

Festival Italiano

WHEN: Sept. 10-11, 2016
WHERE: Belmar, Lakewood

Festival Italiano is known for serving up the region's best selection of homemade Italian specialties for guests as well as an artisan marketplace, live entertainment and chef tastings surrounding the festival dining booths. This free celebration features live music on two stages, chef demonstrations, wine tastings, kids activities (grape stomping!), a bocce tournament and flag throwers flown in from Italy for the weekend.
