Summer Concert Season

Summertime in Denver is all about the outdoors. Denverites spend these months making the most of the plentiful sunshine and copious fresh air — hiking, biking and enjoying a host of live music extravaganzas. 

Red Rocks Summer Concert Series 

WHEN: June–September, 2016
WHERE: Red Rocks Amphitheatre 

No summer in Denver is complete without at least one — or two, or five — trips to the awe-inspiring Red Rocks Amphitheatre, just 15 miles from Downtown Denver. More than 70 million years in the making, the 9,450-seat venue is flanked by enormous 300-foot red sandstone rock formations and always boasts a star-studded musical schedule. 

Some of the highlights include:  

Goo Goo Dolls with Collective Soul and Tribe Society, September 13, 2016 

Elway's Taste & Tunes Summer Music Series

WHEN: Wednesdays, mid June–mid August, 2016 (Backyard opens at 5 p.m., music runs from 5:30–9:30 p.m.)
WHERE: Elway's Cherry Creek

Head to the Backyard at Elway's Cherry Creek every Wednesday this summer for Elway's Summer Music Series. Enjoy free music from some fantastic bands (including some of the area's best tribute bands), cocktails, the restaurant's signature menu and beautiful Colorado evenings. DJ Tanner spins from 5:30–6:30 p.m. and bands start at 7 p.m.

Please check back for Elway's Taste & Tunes Summer Music 2017 lineup.

Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park Summer Concerts

WHEN: June–August, 2016
WHERE: Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park

Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park is not only a great, family-friendly attraction with roller coasters, water slides and more — it also offers an excellent concert series. All concerts are free with admission to the park. 

Please check back for the 2017 lineup.

Featured Things To Do

Denver Botanic Gardens Summer Concert Series
