It’s been a long summer of sheltering in place. September brings the promise of cooler weather without the threat of snow. It’s a great time to go out and do something fun in Denver. The city has a lot of great options for everyone.
You can try something new or explore one of your favorite activities from going to the park to shopping at the local farmer’s market. Here’s a look at some of the best things to do in Denver in September. Just remember that some or all of these events and locations might be canceled or closed due to COVID-19.
Do you love art? Then CRUSH Walls is the event for you since it brings you the work of local, regional, and national artists. From September 14th through the 20th, the RiNo Art District gets a fresh coat of paint. Using spray paint, artists display their talents and vision on walls and doors.
The entire district comes alive with creativity and cutting-edge art. You can enjoy an afternoon walking around the district watching the artists at work. If you get hot, stop by the Spray Can Bar and grab a frosty beer and watch the artists working.
Denver Startup Week
In 2020, Denver Startup Week is going virtual. This event celebrates all things innovative and entrepreneurial in the Mile High City. This year, you can sign up for online sessions for free. It’s a great way to learn new things about running a business.

Denver Food and Wine Festival
With tickets available online for the best events, the Denver Food and Wine Festival is sure to be a great time. You can dine under the stars or party on the patio. Festival events start on September 4th and run through the 8th with the Grand Tasting on the afternoon of the 7th.
This is the one event you don’t want to miss with more than 40 area restaurants handing out samples to sink your teeth into along with wine and spirits. There’s even a culinary demonstration from a renowned chef.
Local Farmer’s Market
You want to eat healthier and visiting a local farmer’s market can help you meet that goal. There are several farmer’s markets in the Denver area, and each has its own unique flair. Of course, you’ll find more than fresh produce. There are weekly events, live entertainment, and the best home-cooked food in the area.
You’ll find different farmer’s markets open on different days of the week and a large variety open on Saturdays. You can find anything from locally-made butter and cheese to homemade pies and jam. Many of the farmer’s markets have a festival feel.
Take a Walk in the Park
Denver is home to many parks. Whether you’re looking for walking trails or a picnic area to grill up a meal with family and friends, there’s a park close by. City Park is the largest with a museum, zoo, and golf course. You can walk by the lake and view the City Park Pavilion, a 19th-century landmark built in the Spanish style.
You can take your pup to the Carla Madison Dog Park for an afternoon of fresh air. With so many parks in the area, you can visit a different one each weekend.
