Hello Summer Fun: Colorado Fairs and Festivals 2021

After a year of cancellations and being stuck at home, summer fun for 2021 is in full effect, offering a variety of fairs and festivals in Denver, Boulder and beyond.

Whether you're looking for family fun, an action-packed rodeo, or something more food-focused, there's a fair or festival just for you.

Some of the more unique options include:

  • The Boulder International Fringe Festival provides a platform for artists to showcase their artwork often in non-traditional spaces. They present a year-round way of life capped by an annual 12-day performance art festival, which brings together local, national, and international shows, as well as other events in Boulder.
  • The Colorado Dragon Boat Festival showcases a competitive sport that is over 2,000 years old and steeped in tradition. Held at Sloan's Lake Park in Denver, it features more than 20 food vendors, a huge Asian Marketplace, Dragonland interactive children's area, and over 100 music and cultural performances on five stages.
  • Rocky Mountain Star Stare (RMSS) is an annual star party sponsored by the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society. Offering an amazing experience for all ages and skill levels, this event features national-level speakers, outdoor activities, children’s events, and the opportunity to and appreciate the clear, dark skies of Colorado.

Now, let's get to the full rundown of the best events coming up this summer (and fall). Just be sure to check out the website for any event you wish to attend. Times, dates, locations and Covid regulations are subject to change.
