Fun Things to Do in Denver This Weekend

Boy bands, brews, and more.

Though it’s not technically summer in Denver yet, the current temperatures are saying otherwise. So this weekend can (and should) be spent outdoors: at the craft fair(s), farmers market, brewery, or luau (yes, you read that right). It may feel like you have some sort of socializing deficit to attend to, but just remember: As Denver continues to open up, there’ll be plenty of chances to be out on the town, mostly mask-free. So enjoy yourself, and resist the urge to feel FOMO if you can’t attend every single event. There are lots more coming; trust me.

Get your thrift on at the Horseshoe Craft & Flea Market

Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm
Berkeley
“Shop small” is the name of the game this weekend. For starters, spend your Saturday morning (or afternoon) at the Horseshoe Craft & Flea Market, which is putting on an outdoor extravaganza at the Berkeley Chapel Lot. Expect lots of vintage, handmade goods, delicious food, and more. 
Cost: Free entry

Get your veggie fix at the Union Station Farmers Market

Saturday, 9 am - 1 pm
LoDo
Ready to fire up the grill? For some ultra fresh veggies to star in your next BBQ, head to Union Station Farmers Market this Saturday and start shopping. When it comes to variety, the options are (seemingly) endless—so don’t be afraid to step out of the box. 
Cost: Free entry

Do yoga (and have a post-yoga beer) at Balanced Brews

Sunday, 12:30 - 1:30 pm
Sunnyside
If you’re under the impression that beer and chips is the ultimate combo, prepare to be amazed. Beer and yoga actually seem to be hitting it off nicely, and that’s in no small part due to Balanced Brews, a Sunday afternoon get-together hosted by Tara Clack of Mountain Lily Studios at Factotum Brewhouse. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your ticket via the link above (and yes, one beer or non-alcoholic beverage is included in the price). 
Cost: $20 

Shop til you drop at the Merchant Collective MADE BY US Pop Up

Friday, 5 - 9 pm
LoDo
Looking for yet another opportunity to shop? This Friday evening, spend some quality time at the Dairy Block in LoDo, where local artisans and makers will abound for the MADE BY US Merchant Collective Pop Up. Also important to note: If you can’t make it on Friday, MADE BY US is hosting another market on Saturday, 2 - 6 pm, over at Infinite Monkey Theorem. 
Cost: Free entry 

Kick off summer at this mask-less Luau

Saturday, 4 - 9 pm
Five Points
If you’re vaccinated and ready to party, this one’s for you (and yes, you will be asked to show your vaccine card at the door). For a Hawaiian-themed party on Saturday night, stop by this Luau, hosted by the Denver Secret Social Society. Rolling Smoke BBQ will be providing the food, with donuts from the Donut House and music from DJ Rush and DJ Que. 
Cost: $49

Sing your heart out at this boy band tribute concert 

Saturday, 9:30 pm - 1 am 
Larimer Square
Though NSYNC’s time in the spotlight has long passed, many of us (presumably) still mourn the loss of ‘90s boy band culture. If that sounds like you, listen up: This Saturday, a full-on, very cheesy, no-holds-barred tribute show will be happening at Larimer Records Cafe, and it’ll only cost you $15 to enter. Need we say more?
Cost: $15 

Visit SPACE Gallery’s 20th anniversary exhibition

Friday, 11 am - 5 pm, Saturday, 10 am - 3 pm
Art District
Lastly, don’t let June (or this weekend) pass you by without paying a visit to SPACE Gallery for their 20th anniversary exhibition, which features the work of artists like Sue Oehme, Patricia Aaron, and Jeff Glode Wise. SPACE has long been a champion of modern art—and artists—in Denver, and this is your chance to experience a heaping dose of some truly stunning work firsthand. 
Cost: Free
