It’s the Labor Day weekend next week and the end of summer is upon us. So it is our duty and responsibility to make the most out of its remaining days and make sure that we end summer with a bang.
Whether you are looking for some outdoor fun, some family activities, or just want to have a quiet getaway, Denver has something for you to do.
To help you out, here are some fun options:
Watch Frozen: The Broadway-Bound Musical
Let it go!! Let it go!! Come on, I know that you know the song. This beloved Disney animation is now a broadway bound musical. But before they head off to Broadway, Denver gets to enjoy it first as Frozen: The Broadway-Bound Musical will be running for a few weeks at the Buell Theatre. Bring your kids and have fun with the whole family. Make your move, though. Tickets have been selling pretty fast.

Attend the Closing Weekend of the Colorado State Fair
The Labor Day weekend will also be your last chance to attend the Colorado State Fair. Get the whole family and participate in one of the biggest professional rodeos in the continent. Watch some live music, see livestock and horse shows, and see different carnival artists and various entertainers. Check their website for the ticket prices of each event.

Join the First Friday Art Walk
As the Colorado State Fair ends, the First Friday Art Walk begins. Every first Friday of the month starting this Labor day, art galleries around the Santa Fe Art District will be showcasing their pieces. You can even meet some of the artists deatured in these exhibits. Aside from the art, there will be several happenings around the area including different street performance. Oh, you can also grab some grub with the many food trucks that will be joining in on the affair.

Catch Phish or GRiZ (or both) Shows
If you want to see live music, there are two bands doing separate shows this Labor Day weekend. First, Phish will be taking over Dick’s Sporting Goods for a 3-night series of their genre-bending music and extended jams. Second will be Griz with his self-described “future funk.” This will also be the premier of the GRiZ live band.

Watch the Colorado Rockies
The Colorado Rockies had a very forgettable match against the Arizona Diamondbacks last June as Jeff Hoffman was torched for seven runs. The Rockies may be looking to avenge that loss this Labor Day in front of the home crowd.
