Colorado Holiday Events

Colorado Holiday EventsEvery day is a holiday when you’re in Colorado. There are iconic Colorado holiday events that take place when visitors and locals Colorado have the time to get away. Colorado holiday events range from New Years eve torch light parades to old fashion Fourth of July parades at Colorado's classic downtowns. This Colorado holiday events guide covers special activities taking place in Colorado over holidays like Valentine's Day, Memorial Day, Easter, St. Patrick's Day, Mardi Gras, Halloween, Christmas and all the rest.

See Colorado Holiday Events taking place during these holidays

November Colorado Holiday Events

Thanksgiving – Thanksgiving kicks off the winter holidays and it’s usually the first family gathering of the season where families consume food, libations and try not to discuss politics. Wanna get away? See these great ideas of concerts, festivals, things to do at ski resorts and more. Either bring the family with you, escape the family or find another family to hang out with. See Colorado events taking place Thanksgiving weekend in Colorado.

December Colorado Holiday Events

Christmas – Yes, you are guaranteed a white Christmas in Colorado and you're encouraged to get out and soak in the winter feeling at Christmas holiday events that usually get started around Thanksgiving with several lighting parades, continue through December with indoor and outdoor holiday markets, and you can expect to be entertained all the way to New Years Eve with special concerts, festivals and celebrations. ‘Tis the season. See all the Christmas and winter holiday events taking place in Colorado.

New Years Eve – From Denver to Grand Junction and Steamboat Springs to Telluride, Colorado throws down big time when it comes to ending the old year, and welcoming the New Year. Mega fireworks shows, on mountain torch light parades, decadent parties, major concerts and the biggest festivals in America are right here in Colorado to help ring in the New Year. See all the December 31st celebrations in Colorado.

January Colorado Holiday Events

Martin Luther King Birthday Weekend – On the third Monday of every January Americans observe Martin Luther King and his non-violent movement to bring civil rights to Americans who were denied them. It’s a national holiday, so most businesses and schools are closed and that makes for a long weekend and extra visitors to Colorado for winter adventures and fun. See how you can celebrate Martin Luther King's Birthday in Colorado.

February Colorado Holiday Events

Valentines Day – The most popular Date Night in America is Valentines Day and you can be sure Colorado communities will be busting with things to do for couples in Colorado. See Valentines Day events in Colorado.

Presidents Day Weekend – Great men do great things and George Washington and Abraham Lincoln are a couple of great men who have garnered their own holiday. Presidents weekend is celebrated around their birthdays on the third Monday of every February. Since most schools and businesses are closed and ski resorts are buried in snow, this weekend has become a popular time for visitors to come to Colorado. Resorts and communities are busting with things to do whether you like to ski or not. See events in Colorado during Presidenta Day Weekend.

Mardi Gras – Mardi Gras lands on the Tuesday that is 47 days before Easter. But you don't have to calculate that because we'll do it for you and then you'll be pointed to the parades, crawfish, beads and more that bring a little New Orleans to most all Colorado communities during this festive time of year. See Mardi Gras Celebrations in Colorado.

March Colorado Holiday Events

St. Patrick’s Day – Finally a holiday that takes place the same day every year, March 17. It’s another day of parades, beer and corned beef as Colorado celebrates the Irish heritage that has made America so great. See St. Patrick's Day Events in Colorado.

April Colorado Holiday events

Easter – This holy holiday usually marks the end of winter and the end of spring break and offers Coloradoans and visitors many resort activities. See these Easter events in Colorado.

May Colorado Holiday Events

Memorial Day – Celebrated the last Monday of May, Memorial Day isn’t a very busy holiday in Colorado, so if you’re looking for a mellow good time  to visit this may be best for you.

July Colorado Holiday Events

July 4th – Independence Day is a summer celebration like no other in Colorado. Majestic fireworks, old fashion parades and the best music festivals in the world take place right here in Colorado.

September Colorado Holiday Events

Labor Day – It’s another Monday off in America and another reason to celebrate everything that is Colorado with signature festivals featuring music, food and family fun.

October Colorado Holiday eEvents

Halloween – Just about every corner of Colorado is haunted since even the dead want to be here, so it’s only normal that Halloween is a big deal.
