What Do We Do This Holiday Season?

Needless to say, 2020 has not necessarily been kind to us. Venues are closing and events are being cancelled left and right. Some event organizers who are staying the course have made major changes because of COVID restrictions in order to provide a safe experience. Now that we are in the holiday season, it is nice to know there are a few events that will still be happening!

*All events are hosting at limited capacity due to COVID.

Denver Christkindl Market

Where: Civic Center Park – 101 14th Ave. Denver, CO

When: November 20 – December 23 

Cost: Free Admission

Hosted by the German American Chamber, the Denver Christkindl Market brings an authentic German holiday experience to Denver. Attendees can sip on Glühwein, Bavarian-style beers, or hot chocolate. They can then visit “charming wooden huts” which offer artisan gifts and holiday treats from local and international vendors. Since the recent changes in COVID restrictions, the Market has updated its annual operation to have a safer experience which can be found at this link. As usual, the market will feature live performances such as traditional German polka music, hymns in different languages, blues grass, and even more. A schedule can be found here!

Christmas in Color: A socially safe drive-thru light show. The show uses more than 1 million lights synched to music that plays through your radio while you drive through along the track.

The Botanic Gardens has hosted Blossoms of Light for over three decades. Advertised as “a dazzling and ever-changing display of light and color,” Blossoms of Light offers a family-friendly stroll through the grounds to enjoy the holiday lights. Warm drinks and holiday treats are available at the Hive Garden Bistro. View the menu here. One unique offering from The Gardens is a “Merry & Bright engagement package” for someone hoping to pop the questions this holiday season.

While New Years Eve plans may still be up in the air, there are a few events worth noting because of their excellent offerings every year. Due to uncertainty with COVID-19, we cannot guarantee these events will happen according to plan.

The first is White Rose Gala at the Denver Performing Arts Complex. The event has sold out for the last 18 years. This year’s festivities will feature a Gatsby theme with flapper dresses and a prohibition-style feel. Tickets are not yet on sale, but because of COVID regulations, hopeful attendees will need to contact the organizers to get specifics answered.

The 2nd annual “80s vs 90s New Year’s Eve Spectacular” will take place at 7 PM at The Summit Event Center. There is very limited capacity due to social distancing protocols and tickets are on sale now. A table purchase includes: 6 tickets, a family style Italian dinner, 1 bottle of liquor, and one bottle of champagne with a cash bar for extra alcohol purchases.

Lastly, we want to make a special shoutout to Decadence, the nation’s largest New Year’s Festival. Unfortunately, like most things, Decadence will not be happening this year due to COVID-19. This two-day party is unlike anything you will ever experience. Hopefully, next year we will be able to rage like nature intended, but this year we just have to say thank you for the past amazing experiences. We will see you in 2021!
