Memorial Day kicks off summer in The Mile High City –you know, Denver!-- with a weekend of free rock and roll, arts festivals and water thrills.
Locals or visitors can start their day with a sunrise hike in Denver's famous Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater, then cheer on Major League Soccer with the Colorado Rapids. Denver Day of Rock (May 23 & 24th) blasts downtown with 25 top name bands performing on five stages, (including The Wallflowers, The Whigs, The Hold Steady, Plain White T's, Black Joe Lewis, The Kin, and Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers.) while the Denver Performing Arts Complex explodes with the rock opera, American Idiot.
From water theme parks to river-side bike trails, grab one of Denver's 200 craft beers, head to one of the city's 70 outdoor cafes and rooftop bars and enjoy the relaxing sunshine, music and art of Memorial Day Weekend in Denver.
