Free Kid- and Beer-Friendly Denver Events


This summer, I noticed that one of my favorite things to do is attend free kid-friendly outdoor events where you can drink beer. In case you share this interest, here is a list of free festivals/events in Denver that are kid- and beer-friendly, ranked in order of awesomeness.

1. Tour De Fat
2. Cultivate
3. City Park Jazz (BYOB)
4. The Biennial of the Americas (odd years only)
5. Oktoberfest
6. Five Points Jazz Festival (BYOB)
7. Denver Pridefest Parade (BYOB (or mimosas because this is in the morning); the best place to hang out with kids is where the parade begins at Cheeseman Park)
8. Cinco de Mayo
9. A Taste of Colorado
10. The Capitol Hill People’s Fair

Also, it’s not quite free and I’m pretty sure a lot of it isn’t child-friendly, but Final Friday looks awesome.

Of course, these aren’t the only such events in Denver — I just can’t rank things I haven’t attended. (Check here and here for more events.)

Enjoy!
