The summer of 2017 brings a number of exciting events to City Park. Events in the summer of 2017 are highlighted by 10 weeks of City Park Jazz concerts, the newly reformatted Colorado Classic Bike Race, the Colfax Marathon, several museum and zoo free days sponsored by the SCFD, and of course, the City Park Ice Cream Social. While it’s unfortunate to see some of the more popular events like National Get Outdoors Day and the Tour de Fat move on to different venues, there is still plenty to get excited about this summer in City Park.
Events in City Park are available on the Office of Special Events Calendar, but we took the time to extract the events in City Park and post them on the City Park Alliance web site:
