Relive Denver’s Old West heritage from April 17 - 19 when the nation’s top ranked cowboys and cowgirls ride into town for the Rodeo All Star Weekend at the National Western Complex. Steer wrestling, calf roping, and bull riding, are just some of the events, which also include live music and a fashion show. Speaking of fashion, don’t forget to visit Rockmount Ranch Wear in downtown Denver to pick up some of their original snap button Western shirts, as recently worn by Sir Paul McCarthy on “Saturday Night Live.”
The World Lacrosse Championship in Denver from July 10-19 marks the first time the United States has hosted this world championship since 1998, and promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for lacrosse fans around the globe.

Downtown Denver’s Champa Street will be transformed into an immersive two-block long outdoor arcade game during the one-of-a-kind Oh Heck Yeah event from June 7 to July 26. The interactive games will be played on huge LED screens, projections on the sides of buildings, and in custom art installations. Visitors can play the games on smart phones or by using their bodies. The games will be simple to learn and play, but might cover the entire side of a building. It will be like walking into Tron. Street art, street performers, music, and food trucks will make this an interactive 21st Century street fair.
