Fun Things to Do in Denver This Weekend

There’s a chihuahua parade!

It’s fall! And the last weekend in September! And there’s a chihuahua parade! Okay, I’ll stop shouting, but fall in Colorado is pretty darn great. The leaves are a-changing, and the weather cools down just enough to make watching tiny dogs strut down the street more bearable. This weekend also marks the end of Oktoberfest, the beginning of ArtPark, and the celebration of chiles, Asian culture, and ‘90s alt rock. Yay fall!

Feast at the Full Moon Festival

Friday, 5 - 9 pm
RiNo
Celebrate Asian culture in America in the most delicious possible way: with food from 10 of Denver’s best Asian chefs and business owners. Zeppelin Station is hosting its first Full Moon Festival, with eats from Yuan Wonton, Pho King Rapidos, Not Yo Mama's Cupcakes, and more. Even better, each vendor will donate to Colorado Asian Pacific United to help re-envision Denver’s Historic Chinatown Project.
Cost: Free entry

Dust off your lederhosen, it’s Oktoberfest!

Friday, 5 - 11 pm; Saturday, 11 am - 11 pm; Sunday, 11 am - 6 pm
Ballpark
When Larimer is filled with a stein hoisting stage and keg bowling, it can only mean one thing: Oktoberfest is back. The 51st annual Denver Oktoberfest is one of the best in the country, chock-full of schnitzel, beer, and dirndls, as any self-respecting Oktoberfest should be. Prost!
Cost: From $15

Head south to this iconic chile festival

Friday, 3 pm - 12 am, Saturday, 10 - 12 am, Sunday, 10 am - 6 pm
Pueblo
Hatch who? It’s all about the Pueblo chiles at the 27th annual Chile & Frijoles Festival. Besides the roasting of bushel after bushel of the superior chiles, this fest features live entertainment, street vendors, cooking competitions, a jalapeño eating contest, and last but not least, the chihuahua parade!
Cost: $5

Check out our newest food hall

Friday - Saturday, 11 am - 10 pm; Sunday, 11 am - 9 pm
DTC
The Troy Guard-led Grange Hall opens this weekend in the DTC, bringing a microbrewery, cocktail bar, and nine food stalls to south Denver. The edible options include San Diego fried chicken favorite The Crack Shack, High Point Creamery’s Eiskaffe, and Guard’s Bubu, Rado Burgers, and Crazy Love Pizza.
Cost: Free entry

Say Prost at Rhein Haus’ Oktoberfest

Friday - Saturday
LoDo
There may be no better Denver restaurant/bar at which to celebrate the German ode to beer that is Oktoberfest than at Rhein Haus. Stop on in for daily beer specials, stein hoisting competitions, and two wursts in a bucket sausage tosses. Because if you haven’t tossed a sausage, have you even celebrated Oktoberfest?
Cost: Free entry

Mosh it up at the Summerland Tour

Friday, 6 pm
Ruby Hill Park
Scream along to “Santa Monica” as Everclear headlines the alt rock Summerland Tour. They’re joined by Hoobastank, Living Colour, and Wheatus at the Levitt Pavilion. Wear whatever you’d normally wear, because the ‘90s are back, baby.
Cost: From $25

Stroll the Sloan’s Lake Saturday Night Bazaar

Saturday, 4 - 8 pm
Sloan’s Lake
Scour scores—scores, we tell you—of booths, food trucks, and fashion trucks at Sloan’s Lake’s Saturday Night Bazaar. Thirty dollars gets you access to the 6 - 8 pm open bar, or be a cheapskate and listen to the live music for free.
Cost: Free entry

Do all the things at the ArtPark Grand Opening

Friday - Sunday
Five Points
Here are just a few of the things you can do at ArtPark’s debut this weekend: yarn bombing, a Twenty One Pilots fan art show, art workshops, dance performances, piñata making, face painting, and the Denver Public Library Friends book sale. So yeah, you’re not going to be bored if you head over.
Cost: Free entry
