Somehow it’s already summer! Are you ready for all the awesome excursions Colorado has to offer? From fairs to rodeos to weekend brunch, you’ll never be lacking for entertainment in our great state!

Festivals & Art Shows

Whether you’re interested in music festivals or craft shows, there are events happening all over the state! A few of the more well-known ones include the Renaissance Festival and the Aspen Music Festival. But have you heard about Parker Days or Taste of Fort Collins or the Palisade Bluegrass & Roots Music Festival?! There are dozens of street fairs, craft shows, concerts, and more going on all summer long! Festivalnet.com is a great place to find what’s going on where! You can search by event type or by city.

Rodeos & Fairs

It wouldn’t be a Colorado summer without county fairs and rodeos, and there are plenty to choose from! Whether you go for the entertainment, games, fried food, or rides, you’ll have plenty of fairs to keep you active all summer long. June, July, and August all bring several rodeos to Colorado, so if you miss one, chances are you’ll be able to catch another. The Our Community Now website is a great place to find out what’s coming to town!

 

Dining Out

We mean it literally! With the beautiful weather here, the patios are open and there are some great places for dining al fresco. OpenTable just compiled a “Diners’ Choice” list of the great places to dine outdoors in Denver, so the research has been done for you! Zagat Denver is also a great resource to find all types of restaurants, from the best brunch places to the hottest new bars. Food and wine festivals are another great way to sample Colorado cuisine, and during the summer they are happening nearly every weekend!

Summer at Haselden

We have our own line-up of summer fun at Haselden! This Friday we kick it off with our 5th Annual Haselden Clay Shoot which benefits Homes For Our Troops. It’s followed this weekend by our 1st annual Haselden motorcycle ride, a 200-mile ride to several Colorado landmarks. Later this summer is our annual car/bike/boat show and BBQ, company picnic at the Rockies game, and annual golf tournament!
