3 Ways to Celebrate Memorial Day Weekend in Denver

Denver celebrates the start of the summer season with a long weekend packed with events. This is just the beginning of summer in The Mile High City.

1. Honor our military heroes at the Memorial Day Parade and Tribute Ceremony , May 25
Denver will commemorate those who lost their lives while serving our country during this event, starting at 11:30 a.m. in Civic Center Park. The Veterans Memorial Day Tribute at the Veterans Monument follows the parade.

2. Encounter Mammoths & Mastodons at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science , through May 27
It’s the last weekend to experience this exhibit, where you will encounter some of Earth’s most awe-inspiring mammals and see the fossils discovered at the Snowmass Dig in Colorado.

3. Rock out all day long at Denver Day of Rock, May 25
For the fifth year in a row, downtown Denver’s 16th Street pedestrian mall will be transformed into a massive block party with 25 free rock concerts performed on five stages throughout the day.

And of course, we encourage you to begin or end your weekend with drinks at The Front Porch.
