The unofficial start to summer is here, and Denver will be celebrating by partying, bouncing, and running all Memorial Day weekend long. From the iconic BolderBoulder race to a brand-new inflatable amusement park and mini golf experience to a slew of festivals and parties, there’s a lot of summery fun going on this weekend in Denver. Here’s everywhere you’ll want to be this Memorial Day weekend.

Friday, May 26 - Monday, May 29
Attention: The world’s largest inflatable amusement park is opening this weekend in Lafayette. And it has a bar. Challenge your friends to an inflatable obstacle course, soar down a 30-foot slide, grab a snack at the Bison Bistro, or just relax in one of the medical-grade massage chairs. Bounce Empire has got it all, and it’s open until 2 am on the weekends.
Cost: $25/hour

Saturday, May 27, 1 - 5 pm
It’s a party, but in the day! It’s a darty! Mile High Spirits is hosting a weekly Beach Club themed darty, where you can sip on tropical cocktails, listen to house music on the sunny patio, and pretend for an afternoon that the world isn’t on fire.
Cost: Free entry

Monday, May 29
Join more than 50,000 fellow racers, runners, joggers, and walkers on Monday for the BolderBoulder. Run through the streets of Boulder before crossing the finish line inside Folsom Field, then stick around for one of the nation’s biggest Memorial Day tributes.
Cost: From $69

Friday, May 26 - Monday, May 29
Where can you find a beer fest, more than 30 free concerts, a magic show, tens of food trucks, and a mega market all in one spot this weekend? Boulder! Head north to the Boulder Creek Festival, where the drinking, eating, shopping, and music go on all weekend long.

Catch up with 50,000 of your nearest and dearest art-loving friends for the Denver Arts Festival, where top Colorado artists (and a few national artists, too) display and sell their creations. Whether your jam is fiber and leather, glass, metal, 3-D mixed media, or a good old-fashioned painting, you’ll find something to love.
Cost: Free entry

Sunday, May 28, 2 - 8 pm
If you like ice cream, southern BBQ, and the blues, head over to Little Man Kent Place on Sunday for a Memorial Day block party with all three. Saucy’s Southern BBQ makes an excellent pairing with a scoop of Little Man’s Denver-famous salted Oreo.
Cost: Free entry

Friday, May 26 - Sunday, May 28
Puttshack opens in RiNo this weekend, which means late-night (it’s open until 12 am or 1 am nightly) tech-infused mini golf is here. Its Trackaball technology ensures no pesky scorekeeping and more sipping on porn star martinis. It’s a win-win.
Cost: Free entry

Saturday, May 27, 1 pm
Do you have the need, the need for speed? Or maybe just the need to chill and watch a flick or two on a beautiful Saturday afternoon? McGregor Square is hosting a double feature of the “Top Gun” movies on its 66-foot LED screen. Bring a blanket, grab a drink, and watch Tom in action.
Cost: Free entry
