Make the Most of Your July in Denver

Can you believe we are already halfway through the summer? Ok, that is all I am going to say about that, really not a nice thing to think about! We still have so much time to enjoy the outdoors this summer so I have compiled a list of things to do in the month of July in Denver and some of the surrounding areas.

Farmers Markets – This just isn’t something for July and has been going on since the start of summer but if you have not checked out the many farmer’s markets located in different parts of the city, make sure to do so!

Dragon Boat Festival – Head on over to Slaon’s Lake Park July 18th – 19th for what has become one of Denver’s ‘Top Annual Festivals’ as named by Rocky Mountain News. The festival is perfect to take the whole family celebrating Colorado’s rich Asian Pacific American culture with performances, arts and crafts, dining, shopping and the dragon boat races.

City Park Jazz – Again, this has been going since June but if you have yet to make it to one of these wonderful concerts at City Park, now is the time to go!

Colorado Renaissance Festival – For those 16th century and medieval lovers, this is one experience you don’t want to miss. Running every Saturday and Sunday until August 2nd in Larkspur, bring the family to enjoy full-armor jousting, giant turkey legs, music and a beautiful market with over 200 artists selling their crafts.

Denver Post Underground Music Showcase (UMS) – For all the music lovers out there, here is an event you don’t want to miss. Running from July 23rd – 26th on Broadway Street, this is Denver’s version of Austin’s South By Southwest but with a Mile High City twist. With over 400 local and national bands playing in 20 different venues, you are sure to find a beat to break it down to.

Denver County Fair – Who doesn’t like going to the fair? Held at the National Western Complex from July 31st – Aug 2nd, the fair will have such things as a skateboard rodeo, carnival, eating contests, rockets, animals, Roller Girls and much more.

There are so many great things to do this month so get out and enjoy them all! And if one of the things on your must do list for July is to start looking for a new house, make sure to give me a call and let’s chat about what you are looking for in your dream house!
